I feel a bit lonely starting a blog that for months or possibly more will be kept a secret from my family and friends. For a long time, I imagine, the only people who will read this will be my husband, myself, and strangers.

Why so secretive, you ask?

Well, our friends and family don’t know we’re trying to create a third member of our happy little family. Only my husband and I know that…and of course now you, my as-yet-faceless Internet friends.

My husband and I decided to keep this latest quest of ours a secret as we don’t want the pressure of expectation, the questions, or the advice. Most of all, the decision to grow our family (and my belly) was an intensely personal and spiritual one made between the two of us, so until there’s a little one inside me we are keeping this monumental decision to ourselves…ourselves and all of you out on the Internets, that is. One day, I hope, when our wish is a reality…then we will share this blog with our nearest and dearest. Will they feel betrayed? I hope not.

So if you have stumbled by and end up deciding to stay awhile, please comment anytime. It’ll make me feel less alone in my secret little blog world, seeking my spirit and seed.
