I have a confession to make. There is something I’ve been “hiding” from you for a while. So, I’m going to open up and give you my most vulnerable post to date.
My husband and I started dating in 2009 and got married in 2013. In fact, this past weekend we celebrated our 4 year anniversary and boy was it a special one...for many reasons.
Before we got married, we both agreed that we wanted to have a family together. We heard stories of people having kids quickly after getting married and not having time to just themselves. Seeing as we were getting “older”, we had some debate on what to do and decided that it would be best to wait a year to start trying to have children.
One year later, our journey to make that happen wasn’t such a bright one. We struggled to have patience as things were not happening as quickly as we would have liked. It was discouraging and scary and fear started to set in. I started questioning our decision to wait and wondered if it was too late for us. Diet changes, supplements and mentally giving up didn't work. Every time I had a glimmer of hope, that little (-) would show up on the stick. :-(
Now, I know we aren’t the first couple to experience a journey like this. In fact, it’s quite common these days. Because people have been waiting longer to finish school and become established or “comfortable” (whatever that means to you), people start trying to have kids later in life than ever before - so much so that it’s been called an “epidemic”.
This post isn’t about a pity party. Actually, it’s quite the contrary. :) To our pleasant surprise, I’m happy to officially announce we got a positive (+). Wahoo!!!
I’ve waited to share this with everyone for what I think are obvious reasons. I’m beyond thrilled to make this announcement and I’m so excited for what the future is going to be bringing us come December 2017.
With this big news coming, there will be even more changes to come both personally and for Rescue Me. Thankfully, we have fabulous clients, an awesome team and a great support system. Without a doubt, I’ll be heeding my own advice on productivity and will be leaning on the team more than ever before.
Speaking of productivity, one of the things I want to do to share in the celebration with you is offer my business “baby”, the Email Rockstar, at 50% off...but only until Monday. This is only the 3rd time I’ve ever offered a special on my course and I’m not sure if and when I will offer this incredible deal again. If you’re not familiar with the course, it’s an online, work at your own pace training that walks you through click-by-click how to organize and clean up your email inbox to reach inbox zero and keep it that way - long-term. I’m proud to say I’ve received rave reviews about it. This is what one person had to say:
So, please join me in the long awaited, virtual celebration of expanding my family! I can’t wait to share more with you in the coming months!!! :-D
