The life I imagined

I will turn 27 this week on the 27th. Yes, it is my Golden Birthday. I can remember back when I was a kid thinking how weird it would be when I was actually truing 27 on the 27th. I imagined where I would be in my life by then. The picture changed a bit over the years, but one thing that remained the same is the family I envisioned.

Even this year, as we started our work-up with our RE, I was sure I would be pregnant by my birthday. August seemed so far away in January... Now we are here. It didn't take long at all. My dreams of having a family are still on hold but ever closer. Maybe next year.


  1. Happy Birthday for Thursday hon! I do know what you mean, we all make plans and have this idea about how things are going to work out. I pray that both of us get our dreams in the coming year xx

  2. Happy birthday! It is a bittersweet celebration, isn't it? I'm hoping and praying you're pregnant by your 28th!

  3. Have a good birthday. Do something wonderful for yourself and enjoy the day. Hugs!

  4. I am sorry for your DH's cousin passing from cancer. That really is scary at such a young age. Thank you for the sweet words- I appreciate them!

    27 is a magical year. :) It was for me anyways- that was when I realized I couldn't eat what I wanted and not exercise..not to scare you or anything. :) Just Kidding!!! I am right there with you on the thinking "I will be pregnant by X landmark. I thought last year, that at THIS time I would have a newborn by now.


    It just sucks huh? I love your title- "One Who Understands". You do don't ya?

    Thanks girl!

  5. As you blow out the candles I'll put in an extra secret wish that this is the best year ever. I saw a little glitch in my blogger and am sending you some extra love and support just in case you need it.
