(and ironically the same weather, EL NINO) i married my best friend. i honestly had no idea what i was getting myself into. i don't mean to say that it was a bad choice, what i mean is, did any of us really know what life would be like as a married couple? all of the fantasies of a husband and children....seemed like they would never happen, it was the only thing i wanted and it was such an amazing and harmonious life, IN MY HEAD. in all honesty the way that i pictured this life to be was so great that i didn't leave room in my head for REAL life.
my husband and i argue and completely disagree at times. :) my children are disobedient and whine and cry entirely too much. i'm tired all the time. we are both way heavier than we ought to be...but the crazy thing is, to me this life (not the one i imagined) is way better. i have learned so much about who i am and who i want to be, i'm learning daily how to have more patience with my children, my husband and myself, and i love my husband way more than the husband in my imagination. what is there to learn in a perfect marriage or having perfect children? (which i realize don't exhist)
i perfectly love our imperfect life and i love this super cute face.
