Wow! I can’t believe it’s almost been 3 years since we said “I do!” I also can’t believe this wedding website is still up and running…( I should really pay more attention to those auto renewals!) I’ll update the other pages soon so ignore those for now! Oh well, here we are 3 years and 30 lbs later! Ha! (The latter is actually not so funny but we’re working on it… 2 days a week to be exact so…there’s that!)
Ok…well I’m certainly not a writer but recently I have been informed I should start a blog, you know with all this free time I have…so here it goes! It prolly won’t be every day or maybe not even every week but I’ll give it a go when the mood strikes I suppose! First thing’s first, I’m not an English Teacher so this probably won’t always be 100% grammatically correct…I like using parenthesis and lots of little dots…I also like typing like I talk so there’s bound to be lots of missing g’s…it is what it is…if it drives you that insane…find another sob story to read….I have no other solutions for you! 😉 I’m also a bit sarcastic and dry humored at times, get really annoyed at a lack of common sense, and have very little patience. I’m workin’ on it, what else can I say! If you know me in real life then you know I mean no harm or offense by anything that comes out of my mouth.
Alright, on to the point. Here we are, 3 years into this lil marriage thing and so far I’d have to say we’re killin’ it. Yea that’s right we haven’t killed each other yet, which is a plus, we remodeled our house and didn’t get a divorce, we started a Food Truck (The Tennessee Cobbler Company), I built a studio in Florida and we have a dog, our precious 2 year old Yellow Lab Nash Joe! He’s spoiled rotten and we love him like he’s our very own child. Our very own child…that’s something we don’t have. Which brings me to the point of this newly developed little blog situation we have going on here. Before you panic and say “Oh my God she’s about to tell us she can’t have kids and this blog is going to be so depressing!”
I’m not saying that…because we just don’t know. What we do know is this….Craig has a genetic abnormality that has no side effects at all except one, (more on that later). I have an autoimmune disorder which causes issues with hormones and nerves. We know we can’t get pregnant right now and we’re not sure why but we’re working on it! I believe God is in control and he’ll give us a baby when he wants us to have a baby. I’d like him to speed up his process a bit but…hey…all in God’s time! 😉
I get asked constantly “when are y’all having babies?” and the truth is we don’t know! I would have had one a year ago if it were up to me but it hasn’t happened so here we are on this lovely lil infertility journey together. I have never shared so much personal information but maybe our journey will help someone else who is struggling. I’m gonna be wide open with this so there’s no tellin’ what you’re gonna read should you choose to follow along so…be prepared! I’m not very modest when it comes to real life issues. WE’RE ALL ADULTS HERE OKAY?!? I’m opening up my heart to invite you to laugh with us, cry with us, learn with us and pray with us! There have been doctor visits, and tests, and phone apps, and even quite a few laughs! I’ll share more on that (the laughs), among other things later, (I’ve been cleaning a Food Truck all day and I’m exhausted!) but I wanted to let you know where we are and what is on the way! If you made it this far…THANKS for reading! I’ll be back again, the next free minute I can find to write a lil blurb!
