Our History {Part 2}

Read Part 1 here

Part 1 left off with you guys probably wondering why we were suffering.  

Hubs and I lost eachother.  We lost each other in lifes every day struggles.  We struggled for money.  We struggled very bad.  Hubs worked so hard but it was never enough.  It put a very big strain on our marriage.  

In November if 2006 we visited Australia.  We ventured on the 21 hour flight with our 9 month old to visit his family.

Hubs is a Canadian from Newfoundland.  But he spent the majority of his life in Melbourne Australia.  

Australia to home for Hubs.  He felt at home.  Since the day we got married, he wanted to move back to Australia.  Hubs' parents paid for our trip to Australia as we could not afford it.  I am forever grateful for that opportunity.  

We had fun while in Australia.  We went to the Melbourne Cup together.  

Once we returned from Australia, things went back to normal.  In fact, I think they got worse.  Hubs and I fought more.  He wanted to move there and I was dead set against it.
Eve turned 1 and I went back to work full-time.  I worked for a great law firm called McHugh Mowat Whitmore Ionico MacPherson.  

I worked.  Hubs worked.  Eve went to Daycare.  

We struggled, we fought, we argued about where the best place was to live - but our little angel was happy.

I couldn't imagine taking Eve away from my Mom.  Theres a connection there that none of us can begin to comprehend.  You can see it in these pictures.  It's something that can't ever be broken.  

Life carried on, we worked and waited for the next thing.  

The next thing took a while to come along.  

I don't really think either of us knew what the next thing was.  I think we stood still for a while wondering what was going to happen.  Neither of was content.  We were both on edge.  Neither of us took it all in and looked at what we really had.  What we really had was a healthy child, jobs, a roof over our heads, family and love. 

We were lucky.  I didn't realize it then, but I do now.  

Part 3 coming soon
