Expectations are a funny thing. You waste so much time guessing what your life could look like, but the thing is, you can’t really know until the day you open your eyes and see that if you let go, and lean into the unexpected, maybe something more beautiful than you ever could’ve imagined.

I wanted to do it like this. In front of our baby, so that one day he or she could say “I was there. I was there when my daddies got engaged.”

“First comes love, then comes the inability to marry, then comes a stranger and an invasive medical procedure, then comes the baby in the baby carriage.”
