love this life.

I have had a rough start to life, and I have no one to blame but myself.  After high school, I did the whole traditional college thing.  Moved into the dorms with one of my best friends from high school, barely made it through the first year of college.  Next comes the second year of college, moved into a house with a new friend I met in college, did not survive the second year, started working at the age of 20.

And I've been working ever since.

Let's move to the year 2009, when I started dating Kevin.  We both worked for companies we had been at for a long time.

2011 we found our first home.

2013 we got married.

A few months into being newly married, my husband went through a rough patch on the job front.  I find out I'm pregnant with Hadley.  What a whirlwind.  Got married, hubby got laid off, then we find out we're prego.  After this year, things got rough for awhile.  My husband is not the type to work behind a desk, but that's what he did because he always does what he needs to do for our family.

2017 I graduated with my Bachelors.  It was amazing.  Throughout my time in college, I managed to get married and have a kid, and still graduated in 3 1/2 years.  Graduating from college was so empowering.   

After being in the admin type roles basically my entire life, I was offered a new position in 2017.  A position that actually had meaning, a position that actually gave myself my own responsibilities, and my own deadlines.  A job that gave me a sense of empowerment.

Finally, and I mean finally after twenty years, my husband gets the call that changed our life forever.  He was accepted into the city fire department.  How many people do you know get their dream job?  Nobody I know, except him.

At this point in my life, I feel so incredibly happy.

Happy with my husband.

Happy with my sweet Hadley.

Happy with my job.

Happy with how happy my husband is with his job.

Happy with our new home.

Happy with so many things we've been blessed with in this life.  And I just wanted to put it out there on this blog.  So I can go back and read about this time in my life.  Where everything finally has fallen into place. 

And it's the best.
