I was prepared yet unprepared for my 9-year-old to come home from school to be met with the sight of red in her underwear. That was the day my daughter became a young woman. It was also the day I was hit by reality.
To my surprise (because time is literally flying) my hubby and I are coming up on our 2 year wedding anniversary! Just as I wrote a blog on 6 things I learned within our first year of marriage, and had so much fun while doing so, I decided to start a trend! 😉 A lot … Continue reading Our Story: From Pregnant After 3 Months to Happily Married

Now don’t get me wrong, growing up I did participate in the egg hunts and I believe I may have (unwillingly) been a part of the whole “It’s time to buy Easter Sunday dresses.” propaganda. But still, I never understood what this whole day was about. I just knew I was supposed to be in somebody’s church because not doing so would make me look like a huge sinner.
Although, I lied about what I do for a living, I couldn’t help but wonder why I didn’t just tell her the truth. I mean, I am getting better with accepting what I truly do for a living. Or, so I thought.
