Bottom line: I have not said no to babies and yes to a fabulous life. Those two things can happen at the same time. I have said yes to allowing myself to take the time to make a decision that is right for me. Matt and I are being realistic about the fact that I don't have forever to make the decision, and that we may not be able to have children at all. Mostly, I am thankful for the fact we are on the same page, and that with or without kids, it's going to be OK.
1. They didn't have a huge wedding. I'm a total girly-girl but when I imagine my wedding, I don't want a big to-do. In fact, I'd prefer a small, intimate gathering of my favorite people in my lake house town. My parents had a small affair, only costing a whopping $500 for everything and they never thought twice about it. It wasn't the best day of their entire life, it was just the beginning of their marriage, which has had many, many even better days.
