This path is laden with past regrets and what ifs, it is a battle; One that I have lost before. This time is different but so much the same. The fear echoes in the deepest parts of me where I push them back, focus on the now, on the here, on my son and this beautiful thing we call family and life. This time I choose to embrace it. Will I feel the same tomorrow, maybe not but for now I am here, taking it in. I am treating each day as my first (and last) and would I want those I love to know of our child, even unborn if I died today. I would. So, today they will know. That is not the path for everyone. It is the path for us. It is being brave. Hoping, praying, and trusting that maybes, the designers we have. it's not letting the woes of tomorrow bring us down today. Foolish? some might say so but we like to think we are strong. Strong for our child and strong for our own sake. Thank you for embracing that strength with us. Does a positive mean positively? I have learned it doesn't always but we are stepping out in faith. I am positive that for today, I have my baby, my family, my love. Thank you for being positive with us. <3

Day Camping

Last week we decided to conquer the cold and take little man on his first camping trip.
You see... living in the city makes it hard to sing 'twinkle little stars' and then not be able to show them to your son. So, we went somewhere we could. Day camping is becoming a big thing in this household. Even if we can't get a week off we always have two days to get out of the city and breath fresh, clean, crisp air. Time to get back to nature and explore. Time to teach our son what a millipede looks like and where it live, to see deer at night by our tent and watch the diamonds in the sky.

It wasn't easy squeezing three people into a one-person tent; its big enough for two but three and a dog?! It was tight, but we made it work.

We will get a bigger tent for next time though. ha.

One of my favorite parts of our day trip was just seeing things through little man's eyes. I thought he would love the colors of fall all around, or the bugs or the stars most but you know what he said he like most of our trip? "all the trees" he said. I never thought of that but he is so right. Living in the city there is just no room for nature, for trees. In the forest, there are trees for miles and in every way you look. Free to grow tall and strong and unrestricted.
One day, we will own land that is not in the city. A place to grow free, tall, and strong too.
