We Are So Blessed!

Hi Everyone!

Wow, I can't believe it's been so long since I've written anything.  April!  That's crazy.  It turns out that lately I just don't have much to say when it comes to our infertility and since this blog is an infertility blog, it has been seriously neglected.  Sure I still have moments when I think about babies or being pregnant, but for the most part, I am really just enjoying the moment.  I'm seriously too happy to be sad!

Today actually marks one year since we drove to Durango and signed the lease for our house.  One year.  I find it so hard to believe that one year ago we were walking around this big, beautiful, empty house feeling so giddy and blessed that it was available for rent.  You've all seen the pictures.  It doesn't get old.  Sometimes I think it's so easy to get caught up in what we don't have or what we want.  I'm so guilty of that!  I spent the last few years struggling with the fact that everyone around me was having babies and we weren't.  We didn't have that family that we so desperately wanted and I felt so left out and angry.  It was all I could focus on.  It was so painful and if I'm being honest, it still is sometimes.  But, if I've learned anything this last almost year (August 1st marks one full year of living in Durango), it's that I have been so blessed with opportunities that other people dream about and I am so thankful.  Yeah I might not have the things that I thought I wanted, but man, living in Durango has been awesome so far!!  And I can honestly say that I wouldn't trade any of it.  I really love our life right now!!!  By the way, we signed another year lease so we will be in Durango for at least another year!! Visitors welcome!!

That's about all I have for right now.  I just wanted to give everyone a little update.  Nothing too new is happening over here.  Just working and enjoying the beautiful outdoors with our boys!  Oh and we recently got back from an awesome vacation in the Dominican Republic and Puerto Rico.  Good times!!

Pictures for your enjoyment!

One year ago today!!! Getting ready to start a new chapter!
