A Dozen Years...

wedding anniversary funny picture
Not only is it Friday...its the Friday before a long weekend! Oh, and Monday also happens to be our anniversary.  Admittedly, I have spent almost the past whole year thinking we were coming up on our 13th wedding anniversary, but actually, as Adam pointed out the other day, it's only our 12th.  But now he's teasing me that if its our 13th, than I must be another year older.  Yeah, he loves ribbing me about my age since I'm 2 years older than him.

Seriously though, I am really lucky.  Adam is my best friend.  I am so grateful I met him when I did...back when I was just 25!  To have to go through life alone is really tough.  I see this with my single clients who are opting to have a baby on their own, as they feel they have no other choice, and with my clients freezing their eggs because they are single and worry that time is running out, but are not yet ready to have a baby on their own.  As heartbreaking and difficult as infertility is, as long as you have enough money and are open to all available options (egg donation, sperm donation, embryo donation, gestational carrier, etc.), you can have a child, but you can't make a suitable life partner happen.  In fact, in my opinion, being with the wrong person is worse than being alone!

So yes, I am very fortunate to have such a great, supportive husband and I am really looking forward to this weekend.  Friday and Saturday I work, but then the girls are sleeping at Adam's parents' place Saturday night, so we have a date night.  Sunday we will find something fun to do as a family, and Monday Big A has a lunch date with her boyfriend and then a few girlfriends coming for dinner (who could not attend her party last weekend because of Brownie Camp).  Aside from some chance of rain, the weather report looks pretty good, so it should be great.

Have a happy, healthy long weekend!
