Sometimes the most random things take me back. Make me catch my breath, bring tears to my eyes.

Like when I was driving home to my mom’s and saw the fields of sheep, it reminded me of all the drives I made while in college and made me think of how much I longed to have a baby in my backseat.

Or this morning, I was looking up Mommy & Me swim lessons and started mentally planning the logistics of taking Lydia to soak at McMenamins with my girlfriends and their babies.

Sometimes it floors me that I get to be doing these things. There is the most beautiful baby in my backseat. I get to think about swim centers and playdates.

This is my life!

Through every season of longing and waiting and wanting…it was so worth it.
