Post vacation blues

Today I’m laying in bed with a headache and it’s making me want to cry. It’s sorta weird. I mean it hurts a lot but for whatever reason it’s making me super emotional. I just wanna be playing in the sunshine with my babies! Thankfully my husband is super dad and he’s been taking great care of them and letting them come in and snuggle me sweetly ever so often.

In between falling in and out of sleep I’m thinking of that last few days we had together in Palm Springs. They were perfect. We are in the midst of a high stress season and getting out of town and away from on the chaos was a beautiful gift! We had no agenda // just swim, eat, and sleep. It was glorious. The kids had a blast and my sister stayed with us so the hubs and I were even able to sneak in some late night swimming and a movie date!

young love

First comes love, then comes marriage, then comes baby in the baby carriage.

Well, in our case that’s totally the order it happened && fast. I can’t really comment on the timing being good or bad// it’s all I know. When I think back on the dating years I often times ask myself what I’d change. Like for instance my husband and I met very young and though we were friends for a long time before we were boyfriend and girlfriend we still started dating very young. Dating your future spouse when you’re like sixteen/seventeen is gnarly. It’s a huge responsibility and it brings up quite a few struggles over the years. However it’s also awesome and protects you from other struggles. It’s a weird space for sure. We often joke about how our kids are never going to date as young as we did…. But what if we followed our own rule?! Would we still be here today?! I DON’T KNOW! That’s the problem! There is no way to know!

Would we have more money if we focused on really digging deep into our careers before gettin hitched? Probably.

Would we have more possessions? Probably.

Would we have cooler cars or a more hip house?

But would we be happier?

Marriage is a tricky dance and there are obstacles that come up frequently but I’m thankful to have a partner who knows me and I know. Like we really know each other. We grew up together. We know each other in and out of season. We know the tones, the looks, and even the subtle silent body language. We certainly aren’t perfect. We don’t have it all figured out and we are far from accomplishing all of our goals but we are on our way! We love purely and we are not jaded by the world.

Can I say I have zero regrets? Certainly not! But if I had a do over would I make tons of changes? Certainly not! All of our choices have brought us to where were are today and where we are today is sweet.
