Anyway, we celebrated our 5th anniversary last weekend and during that dinner, it occurred to me that I have everything I want. I have a wonderful husband, wonderful friends (we had 25 of them there with us!) and a beautiful healthy daughter who is growing up before my very eyes. That night made me realize that I need to stop dwelling on the past and what we didn't do (a "real" wedding) and celebrate what we have (survive my MIL passing away, my PPD and being married for 5 years, having Lillie) done and will do in the future. So, after some talking and promising that I was really cool with my own idea, we've decided not to renew our vows. We have a wonderful marriage, who cares how we got married.
So, that brings me to the next part of my post...I'm changing the name of the blog. The name doesn't really make any sense if we're not doing the renewal. I'll still blog about the same kind of topics, I'm sure. I promise that I'll make it even better, if you promise to keep reading.
Also, I've (we've) made a couple of more big decisions and I'll share those over the next week. My birthday last weekend was a big day for me and made me really think about my life and what direction to take in the future. So, I'll share what I've come up with in the next couple of days
Ok, enough ramblingHope you like the new title and banner. The banner was designed by the talented Nicole from NBCreative on Etsy. The name comes from a long running tradition in our 'hood where one couple hosts everybody for drinks and snacks while all the kids play. Hence the name Kids and Cocktails. It's perfect for that and I think it'll be perfect for my blog.
