I don't know that excited is the right word for how I feel about finally being ready to start this adventure with Kristen. Elated. Ecstatic. Thrilled. Those are fairly accurate descriptions as well. I've known since the moment K and I met that she was the one for me. It's just taken me a little longer than most to get over the fear of having full responsibility for someone other than myself. You see, K and I like to have adventures. We don't spend our days off lounging around the house. We're active. We hike. We snowboard. We try to travel. Photo adventures. You name it. For me, I was always afraid that having a munchkin would hinder all that. I wasn't sure how I was going to feel about giving up my days like that. It's taken me a little bit to realize that I wouldn't be giving them up. I'd be starting a whole new chapter with my soul mate. Priorities change is the best way I can describe it. I love all the things we do, but marrying her and starting a family has become the most important. We will always be able to do those other things, except now we may have to buy food for 3. A third season pass. Tiny snowboard gear. A hiking backpack that holds a kiddo.

I can't wait to see what the next adventure we have in store is.
