A few things

I got the first hints of pressure from my family to procreate this year at Christmas. I think that shacking up with a pretty awful guy early on kept those types of thoughts at bay for quite a while. Unfortunately, everyone seems to believe that I've finally gotten my life in order, so now they can start the pressure. It started with the generational photos we do every time we get together with my great-grandfather. I realize how fortunate I have been to grow up knowing him, and he has been one of the best influences in my life. I would love for my children to know him, even briefly. However, that does not mean that I'm going to rush to have children so that we can take photos with five generations.

Also: Movie theater marathons are awesome! Lauren and I went to see three movies in a row today, and just kept getting refills on popcorn and soda, and it was glorious! I hope I never stop taking the time to enjoy friendship, junk food and the big screen.
