It’s no secret that Jared and I love food. We love trying new restaurants, new dishes, and in general just eating tasty things. We had a Saturday off together recently (a rarity!!) and decided to check out a local Farmer’s Market. We headed over to the South of the James farmers market over the weekend for some breakfast and fresh produce. We have never been before and everything we picked was so pretty! While I am a die hard fan of the colder months, nothing beats summer time fruits and vegetables. I made a fun little GIF of the things we picked.
YES! IT’S TRUE!! I am pregnant, and we are expecting our little babe in the beginning of February of 2014! I am about 16 weeks along now and we could not be happier. For anyone that knows me, I have had baby fever my entire life. Our friends thought we would announce we were pregnant a few months after Jared and I were married. While at the time I wanted that to be the case, I am beyond thankful for how things turned out. Where I am weak, Jared is strong. I have wanted children with reckless abandon for quite some time, but Jared was looking at things more realistically and led our family in such a Godly way about this decision. While most of our decision was based on financial reasons, I think Jared and I really just needed these past 4 years to be together. We were both young when we got married, and I think having that “extra” time for our marriage has really helped land us in a healthy place.
This is something we truly prayed over for years and years. We understand what a monumental GIFT this is. We do not take it for granted.
Thank you for sharing in our joy friends! It’s been a hard secret to keep, but we are excited to finally let the cat out of the bag! And, this is definitely one of the reasons for my Blogging Dry Spell!
