This month my husband and I are celebrating our third wedding anniversary! With every year that goes by, we talk about having kids and when we’d like to expand our family. We both want to wait a few more years until we welcome a baby so we can do things like buy a new house, travel and spend time together as just the two of us. While it would be great to conceive and have kids naturally down the road, we know that it’s important for us to explore our options and ensure that welcoming children is something that we’ll be able to do in the future. One of the options that we’re considering is egg freezing.Read More
How do you know when you’re ready to have a baby? From what I’ve heard, no one is really ready for parenthood. It’s just something that you fully embrace when the time is right. Seeing my friends start families of their own has been so eye-opening and it’s been great to see the way that they care for and interact with their children. My husband, Kyle, and I have talked about having kids and starting a family of our own one day. Before getting married, we discussed our plans for the future and when children might fit into the picture and we both agreed that we wanted to be married for a few years and enjoy being newlyweds before welcoming a baby.Read More
How do you spend time with the ones you love? Do you eat dinner together every night? Do you go on fun outings? For me, spending time with someone I love, my husband, starts with coffee. Growing up, I never really drank coffee and that was mostly because my parents weren’t coffee drinkers. We only served coffee in our house if we had guests over and I never had my first sip of it until I was in high school. When I started dating my husband while we were both in college, we would often meet up at coffee shops and work on our homework together. We both went to different schools, so we had a long-distance relationship, but we were able to connect by introducing each other to new things. My husband loves coffee and he encouraged me to try a new drink each time we hung out. Thanks to him, coffee definitely grew on me and with every sip I wondered how I had ever lived without it.Read More
Happy St. Patrick's Day!
St. Patrick's Day is an Irish holiday and people who have Irish heritage celebrate in full force every year on March 17. I'm not Irish myself, but I do enjoy how festive everyone gets for this holiday. I mainly participate by wearing green so I don't get pinched!
As St. Patrick's Day was approaching this year, I began thinking of my own family heritage and where I come from. From what I know through research and speaking with family members, my family background is mainly German and Russian. I believe that there is a little bit of Polish, English and maybe some French mixed in there as well.Read More
