Michael and I are still newlyweds, as we got married last October 11, 2008. We always knew that we wanted children, but thought that we would wait atleast a year before that happened. Wrong!!! Seeing as how I'm about to give birth in about 10 weeks. Funny how that happens. I think God just had different plans for us and knew it was time. I guess you could say my life goal was to be a mom and the best mom I can be. Well, my wish came true and I've never been so thrilled.
Michael and I went to Italy for our honeymoon last year. Yes, I serioulsy want to move there. Two weeks just wasn't long enough and we are already thinking about how and when we can get away again. Send the kids to grandparents house! While we were in Italy though, I bought a journel and wanted to record as much as I could. I wrote about different things from the museums, people, the food, the amazing wine, churches, etc. I didn't want to forget anything and wanted to remember it forever. One of the entries I wrote was a letter to my children. I know it may sound weird, but it was short and to the point. I also didn't know that I would come back and one month later be pregnant. Maybe there is something in the wine :) This was my little letter:

To My Children,
I'm sure this seems very odd to write to my nonexsisten children, but oh well. Within the next year or so, maybe I'll get lucky and you will be here. I am mainly writing this book for you, in hopes that someday you read it and understand our love for one another...maybe even get to know us a little better. Who knows! But, that's my corny wish! Know it wasn't easy for us to get here, but if you want something bad enough, you'll work as hard as you can to get it. Even if people tell you it's impossible. Never give up, if you fail, try harder. Follow your heart and fulfill your dreams! xoxo
While I would write, Michael would drink his espresso that he fell in love with...he's not even a coffee drinker!
