Attending a lantern festival had always been on my bucket list (ummm, have you seen Tangled?!). I literally cry every single time during that part in the movie. So when Night Lights decided to bring their lantern festival to Arizona, I knew I couldn't miss it.
But I almost did. I almost didn't go, you guys. Am I crazy?! YES! But I am soooooo glad we made it. It was definitely worth it... worth the drive and worth the wait.
And I am not going to lie, I got emotional during the real thing too. The moment the lanterns lit up and our wishes were sent off to heaven, I couldn't help but cry.
What did I wish for? There are only two things I want in this life: to grow our family, and to watch them grow.
Nothing means more to me in this world than my family. Luna is our everything: the smile behind our eyes and the laughter in our hearts. The joy in our days and the fulfillment in our souls. And we just can't wait to begin the next IVF process to expand our family and give her a sibling.
When you go through IVF, it's not an easy process. In fact, it's daunting... no matter how many times you've gone through it. And while I am nervous to begin the next cycle, I am so incredibly excited and feeling impatient. And I just pray it works.
So I sent my wishes into the beautiful night sky, surrounded by thousands of other wishes... and it was such a magical, beautiful moment.
