I am going to be a little off-topic today because, well, the subject of this blog post says it all. It's my Birthday AND my 2 year Wedding Anniversary! I have had so many blessings these past few years; but more than anything I am thankful for my little but growing family. Here's a little background for those who have interest:
I have been with my husband for almost 4 years now. A year and a half into our dating, he proposed and 4 months later, we got married! Due to my hectic work schedule and being booked a year in advance with my clients, didn't leave us much choice when we were picking the date. While I was looking into the following year, David decided that that was too long to wait and wanted to get married during my vacation time. I take vacation every year around my bday and in this case, it was 4 months away from my engagement. Long story short, I called up my Wedding planner and it was done: July 4 was available at the venue we wanted for our Wedding.
Only one month after we got married, I got pregnant. 41 weeks later, popped out our beautiful baby girl Katherine Elcie Abovian! So to say the least, our life has been going very fast these last 4 years. We just celebrated Kats 1 year birthday and we can't help but keep looking back at how quick things have rolled along.
Most importantly, we would do it all over again, life after life. David and I always wonder why we didn't meet even sooner and start our lives sooner. We truly feel lucky/happy every day of our lives that we found each other, of course being thankful to our sister in law Ellina for introducing us. Life has never felt better, not for me, not for him. The crazy part is that its only the beginning.
This year, I turn 33 and I couldn't be happier with where I am in life. It is such an indescribable feeling that I cannot put it into words. You only know if you've gone through it yourself. To be happy to your core. No money, fame, lifestyle can ever even come close to this type of happiness. I am always hesitant to say these words out loud because I feel I will be hurting those who are not fully content with their lives at the moment or maybe are going through something or maybe have not been so lucky. I also feel like its a dream I am going to wake up from at any moment and I don't want to jinx myself. But I remind myself that I shouldn't feel guilty about being happy - it truly comes from within and anyone can be, it just has to be the right time. Today, on my Birthday & Anniversary, I can't help but express and share my joy. I feel like you are always a part of my journey so I wanted to share something personal from my life that will teach you just one more thing about me: Family is Everything.
