Earlier this year, someone commented that I like to break my rules. In fact, they suggested that maybe I make them to break them.
DB also shared in his writing to me that he thought I would not only find someone quickly, but I would also have a family soon. And, no I am not pregnant just to clear that up.
I said I would never try dating apps yet in the time alone in my house I downloaded them; removing them from my phone just as quickly. There is a propensity for people to lie on them, repeatedly. Plus, guys most certainly need lessons in taking photos for dating apps. Really, truly dudes, have a friend look at your profile because some things just should not be there.
In the past few months, I connected with a guy that I have known for awhile. We watched each other from a distance as we both handled leaving forever behind. We both imagined that our marriages would last forever until they did not.
We both had no intention of dating again especially not making a long-term commitment until we started dating and now all of those never will I ever lists have been tossed out the window.
This summer I adulted my way thru 22 year old antics resulting in this very special shirt from a friend.
I have no regrets about my time this year embracing this new life of mine having some stupid fun yet I am now ready to fully embrace my 38th birthday this Sunday.
I am also happily ready to embrace this man in my life that makes me feel like the most amazing person and who will most certainly have a very important role in my life.
The joy we find in the mundane is surprising. Who knew cooking at home could be so much fun with a partner that enjoys cooking as much as you?
It’s also the little things like vacuuming when I mention that I need to vacuum, noticing that the laundry needs to be folded and going so far as to look in the drawer to see how I fold things, or putting things from the counter in the fridge.
This girl went from wanting to enjoy being very single to enjoying a life as a family. Happy birthday to me. We can make plans, but God always laughs.
