The purpose of our blog is to share our journey through life with family and friends while we leave our mark on this world. Our 20's have been very kind to us and as we enter the 30's we are hoping to continue to enjoy our time in this thing we call life. I should have called this blog "Traveling through Life".

Telling Husband

A few months ago I thought of a creative way to break the news to Matt. I always knew I would tell him instantly but I wanted him to be surprised that I was actually taking a test. I grabbed the gift I made and started pacing around the house. I was still in shock, he was sleeping soundly. I knew I wouldn’t relax until I told him so I woke him up. I said “Happy Easter, I have a gift for you”. He was groggy and didn’t understand what was going on yet. This is exactly the state I wanted him in because otherwise he would be on to me. Back in December I wrote a poem using several Pearl Jam song titles. The poem revealed the big news to him. Halfway through reading he realized what was happening and started smiling. Then he opened the Pearl Jam baby onesie I attached to the poem. He finally asked, “Are you pregnant”?  Finally I was able to calm down. We sat in bed for a while talking and then we broke the news to Cody, which went over smoothly.

That morning we saw a stork on our pond. In the afternoon we had Easter lunch with his family. We have been keeping the secret of us having kids for over a year but we really had a secret to hide now. When we were going to our table at lunch Wanda asks me if the Easter Bunny brought us anything good this year. I kept my cool and thought if you only knew.
