Maybe there's something about getting older that drives me back to the blogging world. Lots of things have happened--and haven't happened--since my 24th birthday, and here I am about to turn 25, in a completely different place than I thought I'd be... fancy that.
Aside from vocational expectations not living up to all I promised myself, personal and family stuff has changed a lot. It's been a year since we decided it was time to stop trying to prevent pregnancy. It makes me sick to think of all the times were were terrified I was pregnant before we were ready; now, it's a monthly roller coaster I feel like I might never get off. Dogs, kitchen remodeling, having a great house... none of that is the same as having a family. I don't understand God's timing, but I'm praying for patience and understanding.
