F*ck no! We didn’t know what the hell we were doing or getting ourselves into. It’s taken a lot of work to get our relationship where it is, and we still have a ways to go. i would NOT want to do that over again.

I’m good right where I am. Getting married was enough excitement for me.

@caritas:  I totally know where you are coming from. I’m 34 weeks pregnant with our first baby and I keep reminding myself to slow down and enjoy this time because I will never be pregnant for the FIRST time ever again, and I won’t have another baby shower, and people won’t ever be quite as excited for a baby etc… I’m a sentimental person though, I always feel sad when milestones are over because I don’t want to age, I don’t want my parents to age and pass away.

It helps when I remind myself to just enjoy the stage I’m in instead of dwelling. On the up side, you’ll never have to plan a wedding again which to me, is phenomenal. I never want to do that again haha.

@caritas:  YES. We got engaged in 7/2012, married in 3/2013, buying a house in 6/2013, and having a baby in 8 or 9/2013. All of our excitement is in this 13 month span. We did what most people accomplish in 5 years, in a little over a year. I do get jealous of engagements just because that was such an amazing period in my life. 🙂

Not really, I miss some moments from the past, but I wouldn’t like to do it all over again. I guess one of the reasons is that I take life in very slowly. I haven’t rush anything really, so I have been able to enjoy and stop from time to time along  this journey. 🙂
