2 Years

Today is our 2 year wedding anniversary. And what a crazy 2 years it's been.

We started our marriage happily living in our tiny 3 bedroom apartment in NYC.

Ten months later we packed up our apartment and moved ourselves to Sydney Australia.

We also started our baby making journey and we bought our first house together in Oregon.

Eight months after that we moved ourselves back to the good ole USA with our 7 suitcases, boatloads of pictures, tons of memories but an unexpectedly empty uterus.

We spent the first 5 months back in the States in our new Oregon home waiting for renters to move out of our San Francisco home and waiting for an embryo to take up residence in my uterus.

We finally made it to San Francisco 4 months ago with all of our belongings from NYC/Sydney and Oregon but still an empty uterus.

And now, here we are, 2 years into our marriage, we've moved too much, lived in 4 different cities, but we've landed here in San Francisco and have finally managed to coerce an embryo to make my uterus home.

In 2 years it's been...

...a lot of moving

...and a lot of waiting.

But it's taught us:

1. That we're really good at traveling together, traveling does not cause fights...ever.

2. That we really really want a family and we're totally ready. Nothing like thinking you can't have something to make you stop and think about how much you really want it.

Happy Anniversary Husband our last as just a married couple, here's to the next year together and all the changes it will bring!
