Oh you know, just some more large pictures that will boogle your eye balls.
You guys. Hubs got me the most beautiful skirt I've ever seen in my entire life, and this blue tee to go with it. This post would have been the most wonderful and glorious in the whole world, but my outfit is not yet complete. And it has to be perfect before I show you all.
So for now, here's another comfy post.

Is it just me, or is everyone and their mother (literally) having a baby these days? I swear every day people are announcing their exciting news with adorable Pinterest ideas. And I'm over here like, "I want a cat. Or two...(cough) ten?" Noo, I'm not a crazy cat lady. Yet. Kiiiiding, kind of.
Anyways, the point is, we haven't been married long and society is telling us to get pregnant before my eggs dry up or something? Which let's be honest, won't happen for another 20 years. I got a lot of good miles left in this tank. So there's no rush! But still. Society pressures people to have kids before they're ready allll the time. And I just won't fall into that trap.
I think when the time's right. It'll be right! And it will all magically happen and be perfect and I'll be so unbelievably happy. But the key, is when I'm ready. And when Josh is ready. And when God feels the time is right.
The point of this post with a completely random opening? Stop asking people when they are going to start a family (not you my lovely readers, just people in general). Just because we've been married for 8 months doesn't mean we are sinning by waiting. Because it's between us. Not us, and when the judgmental people of society think is time.
I know life is about having a family. Teaching your children right from wrong, getting crackers shoved into the crevices of your belongings, having juice boxes explode in the car, snotty noses, and food crusted smiles. Aaaaand wiping away little tears, and rocking a newborn to sleep at night, and kissing and squeezing even after they say you're embarrassing them. And trust me, I'm all about that. I have a bajillion nieces and nephews that I love sooo much. I could spend every day all day with them and only love them more.
I know, when the time is right, I'll be the best mom I can be. (Which will be a pretty awesome one if I might add.)
The thing is, when someone asked when we were going to start a family, and that we've kinda been married for a while (less than a year is a while now?) I actually felt guilty for not having that desire when clearly everyone else is a fountain of fertility these days. So I prayed. And you know what God told me? "Your children need you to wait longer because they're not ready and they know you aren't either. But when the time is right, and you're both ready, you'll know. And it'll happen." And I said, hallelujah God doesn't think I'm selfish for not wanting children yet. In fact, he expects it.
So people I won't judge you for having a baby so soon, so don't judge me for waiting.
And goodness, please, society, don't ask when someone is going to start a family (heaven forbid they crave children and have infertility) because it's just not your business. And if a child is not in the womb, it's because it's not supposed to be there yet. It's really that simple.
