Really…I am, this wasn’t a ploy to get you to click. Annie and I are going to have a baby!!
So, with the exception of close family I am announcing this on my blog and here’s why. Annie and I met about five years ago on match.com, and then about three years ago I/ we got involved in social media (Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, & now Google Plus) and we have openly (for the most part) shared our lives with you. And then about two years ago we started our wine blog and I started this blog…so the online revolution has been good for us and to us. Although, now our wine blog may have to become a parenting blog.
Now, back to the baby part. HOLY CRAP!!
Annie will be 40 years old in December, and I just turned 35 in November…not that this is interesting news, it just means we’re having a kid later than many people do. Prior to learning this we decided that we’re going to buy a house in 2012…love it when a plan comes together. The puzzle is being pieced together.
On top of that, I have been in the midst of shifting careers (which is exciting) and this lights an even bigger fire under my arse…I like it. It’s been a roller coaster the last five years together, Annie and I have been through some exceptionally amazing times, and sometimes that weren’t all that great. Looking back though, it’s like each and every situation and event (good or bad) was meant to be…it all fits so well together and every single bit of it has put us in a better place along the journey.
What does this mean for us?
For me, it means legacy…beyond my businesses or my writings, as long as all things go well medically speaking, I will have this person to pass this world on to. To see this being that is part Annie and part me will be intense and amazing, just like with anything there will be good times and bad…but Annie has truly been the most amazing thing in my life so to share something so special and unique with her will be breathtaking.
Here we are…I hope to have you along for the journey. I’m nervous…bordering on scared, all while having the utmost confidence in Annie and I. One of the best things in our world, is that we are surrounded by phenomenal people…some on the inner circle, some on the fringes…but all of you make it worth it! Until the next post…cheers!
