I had so many people tell me that while in my 20's I should date, but nothing too serious, explore the world, have adventures, find out who I was; because once I got married and had kids I wouldn't be able to do any of that.
What a load!!! I am happily married to my best friend, who I couldn't have more fun with, I have an amazing 16 month old boy, who is an adventure in and of himself. Then there is the wonder of exploring everything with him, remembering how exciting it is to discover flowers and animals and watching him reach milestone after milestone. And all of this I get to share with my DH!!!
Our plans for travel my be a few years off, and I can't just pick up and drop of the face of the earth like some of my friends, but the things I have learned about myself, my world and the people around me could not have been found by any other method than taking on all the great and important responsibilities that I have whilst in my twenties.
