That was simply lovely.

I've been reading your blog for a month or so now. It's so refreshing to read about someone looking at infertility (and life in general) from a Catholic perspective. I hope wonderful things are in store for you and your husband this year.

What finally brought me out of lurk mode was the link in this post to the resort at which you spent your honeymoon. My husband and I also spent part of our honeymoon at Kona Village Resort. It's a wonderful place, isn't it? Such great memories for us, and I'm sure for you as well. :)

A resounding AMEN to your comment about why engagement is so hard. That was our experience's rough and rocky and you have that cloud of "what if we decide we can't do this?" hanging over you...then you take the plunge and it's not so hard anymore. Because the question is no longer "Can we get through this?" but "How are we going to get through this?" Which, IMO, is a much better question. :) Thanks for sharing your story!

I've heard it said, "If you can get married, you can stay married!". Of course, I think this assumes that "getting married" involves an actual engagement period and the stresses thereof, and not a Vegas drive-thru. ;-) Our engagement was hard (we planned and executed our wedding mostly by ourselves), but it proved to me beyond any doubt that my husband and I work well together under pressure! :-)

I still wish I could go back and relive our wedding day over and over again. Our daughters Piper Arwen and Bridget Eowyn are a testement to our success so far. :-) My husband and I think you've picked a great name for your blog!

you two are incrediably cute. you're the people whose pictures are in the frames when you buy them :)

Well this'll be the first time I've posted to a blog where I actually already know the blogger. Hello Arwen! You do very look very cute in your pictures, btw.

Thank you for blogging your love story. I have a weakness for love stories...maybe I should tell mine on my blog, though that might be a little hard on Liam, who is shyer than I am. Especially if I posted all the love poetry I've written because of him over the last three years.

My comment is getting a little long, so I'll finish up some of my thoughts on my blog. Looking forward to reading more from you Arwen!

Just wanted to say, I liked your story, and I've enjoyed reading your comments on other blogs. It's nice to see someone who's on to the nuances of the Catholic perspective on IF. (Even if I, um, didn't exactly follow them to the letter. Damn it).

To clarify (sorry): I do NOT, NOT, NOT regret the baby I currently have in the oven. I just regret that I went a little over the edge in conceiving it. Now that it's in existence, though, I would give the world for it. (Sorry, just wanted to make that clear before I got struck by any lightning bolts as a First-Water Hypocrite).

Aww. I've been meaning to write a similar history myself and you've inspired me to go and actually DO it this time.

I also married young (21) but had very different circumstances (older man, lived in sin, etc). It's nice to read about how I SHOULD'VE done it, in hindsight. It's a lovely story.
