When I think back to how happy we were six years ago at our wedding, or even last year on our vacation as we celebrated five years, I feel naive. Like – “You fools! Did you think you could be happy forever and that everything would come easy for you? Ha!” Not that every day was easy – we certainly have had our disagreements, experienced the loss of pets and struggled as new homeowners at the beginning, but things had settled down for us. Which is why we thought it was a good time to try and start our family and have a baby.
I wish I could be happy like I was last year. We were blissfully unaware of how disappointing and tough the next step on our journey would be. Sometimes I wish we hadn’t started on this journey, if only to save us the heartache.
In an effort to think of happier times, and happier memories, here are a few pictures from our trip to West Palm Beach last year for our anniversary. We stayed at Eau Palm Beach Resort & Spa, and it was fabulous. I would definitely go back again. The animal photos are from our visit to McCarthy’s Wildlife Sanctuary, which was amazing. If you love large cats and animals and want to hear interesting stories about rescuing and habilitating them, and donate to a good cause, you should certainly visit if you’re in the area! Definitely one of the highlights of our trip.
