So, I just arrived on this site and am looking forward to learning and observing all kinds of new things! Just a brief intro about myself:

I'm 22, newly wed to the love of my life since I was 17. He's 6 years older than me so he's creeping up on the big 30 mark real fast! He had a daughter from a previous relationship when we first met, she was about 18 months old then and has since grown into quite the independent 6 year old today! I love her dearly and have considered her my daughter since she was about 2 and a half. She was the reason that I decided I wanted to be a full time mommy!
So, moving on, DH and I were dating for almost 5 years before tying the knot last month. We were already living the married life but it felt right to have a wedding and sign the papers and have the same last name. I definitely didn't want to be just boyfriend and girlfriend forever
We have known for about 3-4 years that we've wanted to have a child together but have never been financially stable enough to do so. Last year (to the date actually!) I received an unexpected promotion to a management position for a company I had only been working part time at for a couple of months. A few months later a management team position came open that DH and I decided to take within 24 hours (it was too good to turn down). It allowed us to move 4 hours closer to his daughter who had moved with her mom a few months prior. This all happened in April of this year, but with a wedding on the way in September, DH and I decided to wait until after the wedding to start TTC.
So here we are, just got through our 2nd cycle of TTC and are moving on to the third!

I look forward to having this place as my 'go to' when I need support or just a place to vent or even goof off!
