I think that you could talk to any of my college roommates and friends, and every one of them would tell you that I was not the kind of girl to get married early. Definitely not one of the first of our group. I had no desire to settle down and get married anytime soon - the idea of living a "white picket fence" life terrified me. I had so many places I wanted to travel and so many adventures I wanted to have before I got married and turned boring.
All of my friends would tell you that I had absolutely no desire to have children. I didn't really like kids, and I was terrified of babies. My junior year of college I had my 3-month-old nephew stay with me for a week, and that was the best birth control I can imagine. Oh, I knew I would have kids some day. I guess I just imagined myself adopting them when they were at least seven years old.
Right now I am 27 years old, 28 in two weeks. I can hear my husband snoring from the bedroom because he worked hard building a master bathroom for me today. My dog is snoring on the other side of the couch. And I see my chubby tummy in front of the keyboard of the laptop, growing bigger with a baby inside.
And I can not imagine being any more content than this.
