I had just been released from the hospital. I was so excited, because I got to spend the 4th with family and see the fireworks instead of being stuck in that darn hospital bed. Little did I know that just 2 days later, my precious Elise would be born.
Gosh, I can't believe it has been 5 years.
I always think about that day on July 4th. My life was about to change so much - and as it turns out, it changed more than I could have ever expected. Back then, I never thought I would be sitting where I am today, that is for sure. Being infertile is just one of the many things that lie before me in that picture. It's amazing - I'm not even the same person anymore. I've learned so much and grown in so many ways...and I do think my hair style has improved as well. ;)
