Embracing The Life Cycle

It is quite strange how quickly things can change. How one chance meeting or a simple choice being made can land you a trip to the next stage in the life cycle. I just recently attended my best friends' baby shower. Not only is it strange to type that sentence but it was just as bizarre to be there with her being 8 months pregnant and talking about her delivery and if she is going to breast feed.

My eldest sister has two children whom are 2 and 6 months old, so I am used to being around expectant mothers or small children. The difference being she is my big sister and not one of my peers... not someone who I normally associate with being drunk or acting like fools.  Of all my friends Laura (my pregnant friend), was the first to buy a house, the first to get married, and now the first to be pregnant. This only means that from this point on big changes are going to be occurring all around me. Sloppy late night parties will become quiet social time where we discuss upcoming weddings, looking for homes and how expensive they are, to whether you are going to call your baby boy Cameron or Owen.

The truth of it is I am quite excited for all these new beginnings. Looking forward to meeting my friends future spouses (some I believe to have already met!), attending house warming parties and baby showers, and eventually play dates. Only a few years ago did all of this seem scary and so far away, but now that it is happening it seems incredibly exciting.

I would like to dedicate this post to my friend Laura. She is someone who is so special that words can't even begin to describe her. I am lucky to have her in my life and I know that she is going to be the most amazing mother. She is about to embark on a journey that I believe to be one of the most important of the life cycle. Congratulations Laura, I can't wait to meet your baby boy!

The Revival

To all my thousands of followers... I am back. I have decided to return to my blog and begin to write once more. I realize my first and last post (from over a year ago) was incredibly genius and so very insightful that nothing else was needed to follow such a masterpiece, but I now feel that it would be unfair of me to withhold my brilliance. 

Today I will simply leave you with a photo entitled "never let sleeping dogs lie."
