When are you having a baby?

The million dollar question every newly-wed has heard thousands of times: When are you having a baby?

Life Behind The Lens

-Life Behind The Lens- Image from: Most of us these days are very up to date with social media, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat.

We're all guilty of it, following random people and keeping up to date with their lives while we live our own. To the outside world their lives look perfect, they're beautiful, they have a picture perfect wedding, have the perfect husband to whom they give cute nicknames, they have the perfect house, they have a car, they're the perfect parents to their perfect children, in their perf
