Hi y’all! I’m SO sorry for the looooong absence…. Life got CRAZY! Like seriously.
After Beating cancer, having multiple surgeries in 2015 and 2016 and getting a full time job and being a single parent to a pre-teen and a teenager, it’s been pretty damn hard!
I had to take some time to myself.
Since my last update in March of 2016, I had an emotional roller coaster happen and finalizing my divorce to my now ex-husband and meeting an amazing, loving, kind hearted man that has fallen in love with me and treats me like a queen! I don’t know how I got SO lucky y’all! Seriously, this was NOT expected… I wasn’t ready to date, well at least I THOUGHT I wasn’t ready, but GOD knew I was and placed this amazing man in my life when I really needed him.
You see, I had lost connection with my best friend since high school for about a year and a half. After my separation with my ex, I felt I needed to get in touch with her… I don’t know how I was able to beat cancer and do that whole chapter of my life without her, she is also a Cancer survivor (thyroid) and she has also been through hell and back so I reconnected with my best friend and we picked up where we left off…
We caught up and filled each other in about our lives and as we started to hang out A LOT again and being inseparable, She introduced me to her 2nd cousin. I thought he was cute, but he wasn’t my type… plus… I wasn’t ready to date… I mean, hello, I just got out of an emotionally disastrous marriage that had me SO stressed out, it literally gave me cancer….. ANY WAYS.. so as I hung out more at my besties house, her cousin would join too and I got to know him better and meet his kids and hang out all the time and for like 6 months we became good friends.. he had left little hints and tried to ask me out, but I politely said no thanks and he left it alone.
Well, at my LAST herceptin infusion on June 8 2016, my best friend coordinated a special dinner with a group of friends and he, her cousin, had been messaging me all day saying “congrats on beating cancer” and stuff… just small talk over FB messenger you know. Well we texted most of the day and after that night and eating dinner with my friends, We had decided to attend a concert for a local band the following Friday …. I didn’t want to be the 3rd wheel so I asked him out and said ” Hey, Would you like to go to the concert with me?” He said “YES!” SO, we had planned on this first date for a week! we talked every day and we couldn’t wait for that Friday night, so we met up for dinner and then met my bestie, his cousin, at the bar for a game of shuffle board and some drinks! Well, from that point on, we have been inseparable!
He and I got pretty serious pretty quickly and after a couple of months, he moved in with me! We’ve been living together a little over a year now and we are SO happy in love! I don’t know what the future holds for us, but all I know is that I want him to be apart of it! 🙂
I have fallen so head over heels for this guy and his adorable kiddos too! Not to mention his whole family is awesome and I’m pretty close to his sisters and of course his cousin, my bestie is more like family now! She’s always been my sister from another mister, but now it feels like we are for sure family! 🙂
My kids are healthy and amazing, my life is amazing and I wouldn’t change anything about it! The way GOD has placed people in my life whether for a short time or for my forever, HE knows what he’s doing and I trust HIM with all my heart and I know HE won’t lead me astray!
I have followed my heart and with GOD giving me a godly man to be my life partner now and for us to share this beautiful blended family, I wouldn’t trade it for anything in the world!
I’m SO happy in love and my kids are happy and his kids are happy and the 4 of them have SO much love and happiness for them all, it makes my heart swell 5 times bigger! I’m over flowing with love and happiness and I know many can notice that I am MUCH more happier now and I’m GLAD it shows! 🙂
My life is finally feeling meaningful and I’m just so happy in love.
OK, OK… enough with the sappy love story! 😛
This is why I have been MIA for over a year and a half… making memories, loving life and being the woman GOD wants me to be!
I will update again soon…. hoping to get some good family photos of the 6 of us done soon so I can post them here! 🙂
Thanks for all the love and support you guys! I appreciate it!
LOVE YOU ALL!
