A Year Ago.

A year ago today we went on a walk. It was a beautiful walk on a trail I had never before visited. The air was cool and crisp. The leaves were loosing their color and falling to the ground. But what I remember most? Excitement. Excitement to my innermost being making me want to burst with happiness. A baby was on its way. A girl? A boy? What would he/she be like? What will be like as parents? What do we like about our own parents' parenting styles? What will we name this baby? All of these things and more we discussed that day. We decided that day to wait and tell the baby's name until he/she was born. We decided that day not to even bother discussing names until we found out if this baby was a boy or a girl. We decided we liked names that weren't easily nicknamed. We found out we didn't like a lot of the same names, but we also knew we'd find one eventually. So much for not talking about it until February.

We've been on many, many walks since getting married. Some of them long since lost in my memory, lacking anything sparkling to keep it fresh in my mind. But this walk? I'm not sure I will ever forget it.
