Abbey from Life Treasured

Hi, 'You Are The Roots' readers! I am so excited to be guest blogging over here today. My name is Abbey and I blog over at Life Treasured.

My Husband and I are high school sweethearts and have been married for a little over 4 years. We were in engaged 6 years ago on New Years Eve. It was such an unexpected surprise and I couldn't wait to begin planning our wedding and then soon enough become a Mrs.

It is funny how things turn out in life. I mean, as a teenager you never imagine marrying your high school boyfriend. That's why life is fun and so unexpected. You never know where love or life will take you.

We were married on a rainy day in June and began living the carefree life of newlyweds. We bought our first house and made it our home, started our "big kid" jobs and enjoyed the simple things in life. Fast forward to 3 1/2 years later.....we were ready to begin a new adventure in life and that was to begin a family. We envisioned a few kids within a few years apart and we were excited about expanding our family.

We were beyond thrilled when we were blessed with a positive pregnancy test. The wait to get into the doctor for an ultrasound seemed like an eternity, but we waited and dreamed. We dreamed about the little one developing in my belly and the parents we hoped to be. When it was finally time for our ultrasound we went in with high hopes and fingers crossed that our little one was on track with development and off to a great start. Then life did a funny thing and took us on a path we never could have imagined. The ultrasound revealed that we would be having twins! We were on cloud nine and our emotions were on an all time high. Three weeks later we went in for another ultrasound. I still can't believe what the ultrasound tech discovered. After a long uneasy silence, she announced that we would not only be having two babies, but THREE! Three identical little ones! We laughed...it was all that we could do with the amount of shock that ran through our bodies as we discovered we would be bringing triplets into the world as first time parents.

From that moment forward our life changed....for the better. It was another example to prove to me that no matter how much I think I have it all figured out, life takes you on an unexpected journey. One that isn't necessarily in the "plans," but a journey that you could never imagine your life without. No one dreams about starting a family off having triplets, but I am in love with this new reality and I couldn't have planned it out any better.

So weather it's not knowing when and where the love of your life will find you or how your family will take shape...life has a funny way of working out and it takes you on some amazing journeys!
