you are awesome ♥


hi homies. i just wanted to say a big THANK YOU to everyone. we (both josh and i) really appreciate your kind comments, support, thoughts, and prayers. i was really nervous to post about our infertility, for a number of reasons [i mean, i'm just a little 23 year old, you know? like...who cares if we don't have kids yet because i'm only 23 and josh is only 26? we're young and all that jazz. and we havent been trying for that long. and people have cancer. and people die every day in car accidents. etc etc etc]. not to be a downer or anything, i was just really worried how people would take it i suppose. sometimes it can be scary to put stuff like that out there to the whole wide world.

so...thanks. all the comments, text messages, facebook messages, emails, etc have really been amazing. i didnt really know what to expect after writing about it. to be honest it feels kind of liberating to let everyone know, since it's always awkward when people ask why we don't have kids yet, or when we're gonna have kids, etc [BTW, you shouldnt really ask people those questions...just sayin...unless you're like mega close and your friends can cry in front of you when they spill their guts about not being able to get knocked up]. i always used to have the excuse, "oh, well we're in school and stuff you know." after a while that excuse didn't really work anymore and when asked sometimes i would have the urge to yell "WE'RE WORKING ON IT, OKAY!?!" hahaha. yeah...awkward...

anyways, i will stop rambling. thanks again for all your support. i love you guys ♥

ps: stay tuned for a little photoshoot. it involves a collaboration dealing with tights...be excited.

Don't you love the blog world? I love how personal it can get with complete strangers but there is a sense of friendship with people you have never even met in person! Anyways, just know people care about you, even if they don't know you (AKA me;).

ur only 23!! jeez. I had to have my boiler removed when i was 22 because of sickness. i never wanted kids before then and now I do but not now.. I cant see me being responsible enough or able to cope with a kid for LONG time. I have so much of my life i want to live first before i get lumbered for life. Im still a financial drain on my parents lol.
im glad your feeling more positive about this. I cant believe all these bloggy ladies who are married so young!! must b an american thing!

:) i totally agree! you should NEVER ask someone why they don't have kids (can you tell we get this all of the time??)! it's SO awkward. :/
glad you're feeling the love, homie. :D

Hey Jess, I never actually posted but I've been thinking about you alot. I really hope things work out quickly and easily...I can't imagine what you're feeling.

Also, yes, the "when are you having kids" question needs to be one of those social no-no's.
