Ever wake up from a dream that seemed so real you are convinced it actually happened? Or the following afternoon rack your brain trying to piece a dream together because it was so good, you remember waking up and wanting to fall right back into it, waking up not to remember an ounce?
I’d like to say I have always been a dreamer. An optimistic gal, setting her standards high and her hopes even higher. I’ve fallen on my face more times than I would ever like to admit, and many of those times I did not brush myself off and start anew. Some dreams shattered right in front of me. Things that I wished would have gone as planned went completely off track and there was no getting back on.
It took me a really, I mean REALLY long time to become okay with that. And I can honestly say it is still a complete learning process. Becoming a parent at a younger age has definitely taught me a lot. I have learned to put others before myself since the ripe age of 22 and haven’t stopped since. I have changed, for better and for worse. I have lost friends, gained new, gone through things I thought would never happen and lucky enough to experience things I could have never dreamt of.
I am a planner at heart. A girl who likes to know what is going to happen … when, where, why and how. A lady who cares deeply for others. Worries over the littlest of things and will over think the simplest of scenarios.
I am a proud mom to two boys who are my entire world. For over 6 years my stomach has had butterflies and been twisted in knots all in the same day. Parenting has pushed me to limits I did not know existed and given me the greatest sense of being I could have ever wished for. They are my everything, obviously. Ever more they are a part of me that can never, ever be replaced and for that I am so grateful. To be their mother. Learn how to do it all, try to be it all and raise two well rounded boys.
I am an old fashioned gal who fell in love in her teens. Has a man who is my entire other half. He challenges me, encourages me, understands me and loves me unconditionally. He has seen me at my worse and loved me so. Marriage is not a walk in the park. 12 years we have been together and each year we have evolved into new people. A better version of our prior selves, and I think we have one another to thank for that. For the high fives, kisses, chats and moments of pure encouragement – seeing it for what it is, and helping one another to achieve what it can become.
The world is our oyster … wait . What the hell is the saying?
Happiness is contagious.
I always hope that those who come into our lives are feelin’ what we’re putting out there.
We’re all screw ups. We’re not perfect. By gosh dangit, we’ve got eachother.
What more can a girl dream for?
I love this qoute
