Growing up in suburban Illinois, I thought I’d go live in some magical place like Paris, Rome, Sydney or even downtown Chicago. I didn’t think I’d live in the town where I grew up, but I couldn’t be happier. I recently got married on May 27, 2012 to the best man I’ve ever met. He’s kind, hard-working, funny, and very tall (at least from my 5’5″ perspective). He’s a family man and would do anything to make sure that we’re well taken care of, and he’s always here for us. I’m a teacher (and I’m not telling you what kind), and I recently discovered that I’m pregnant! It’s pretty much taken over every second of my day, both waking and sleeping seconds. I read a lot about pregnancy, but I’ve never done this before, so I don’t claim to know it all. This blog is about what I’m experiencing and my thoughts and feelings about it. Thanks for reading!
