wedding - trip - wedding- baby - YIKES!

In two days Traci and I will be landing in sunny southern California. We are the guests of my boss and his wife. We have seven days of events that are planned for us. Oh how I LOVE that I am the guest and they are the planners. We are going to the Queen Mary- staying overnight on the boat, taking a haunted tour, going whale watching, swimming in their pool in the middle of the desert.. going on a safari and feeding animals at the San Diego Zoo... it is going to be a GREAT time..

They are on the brink of a divorce.

I am ignoring that last part and in my head, at least for the 7 days we are there, they are going to be the most in love couple my brain has ever seen.

A mere 17 days later, we get married.

Holy shitballs.

Oh- and right when we get back from vacation, Traci starts training for a new job.

Bean turns 9 months old and in April we are opening our doors one more time.

Traci and I are so excited! After much talking, tears, communication with our licensing worker- we are on board to expand our family. Bean needs a sibling. As much as we thought we were a one kid family (which we will be happy with if it turns out that way) we would love another.

I wish I could put into words how I feel about Traci. I could be all goopy and use sparkly words... but that isn't me. I wish I could send you the FEELING I get about her. Intense love. The desire to experience everything I possibly can with her. I feel like I am living in a fairy tail. Not that it is all strawberry colored glasses- but even the difficult times are easier to deal with because of her.

And with that- I need to stop fake working and actually do something.

Right after I make a list of everything I need to pack.


  1. Now those are positive things to look forward too. So happy for you both.

  2. Wow I really don't know anything! New job, second kid...have fun in CA!

  3. Lots of good things happening for you all. Congrats!
