When I was a little girl I always saw myself married young, with kids, and my own house. I also saw myself as a doctor first and then as a lawyer. But my dreams of a career where shattered thanks to the high school career aptitude test that told me I could do many things but I wasn’t going to be good at any for x or y reason. Well, thank-you-very-much.
I still embarked into college. And even though I suck at drawing, I took one semester of Graphic Design. At the end of the semester I was lost and I needed to take a breather so I got a job as an au pair here in WA. And my life has changed for the better ever since!
I met Tyler in 2006 at a Super Bowl extravaganza party where the Pats beat the Dolphins (my team against Tyler’s). I was the odd man out. It hadn’t even been 2 months since I still felt left out.
During the half time show i was so uncomfortable on the couch that I was trying to find a good spot to sit. Tyler noticed every single move I made and once the game was back he asked “getting comfortable yet?” and of course I blushed as red as a tomato. It’s been history ever since. We lived apart for a year and a half, so yes, long distance relationships do work. You just have to want to make it work.
Tyler and I have been married for 5 years now. He is a great husband, an awesome man, and an even greater father. I couldn’t have asked for a better partner in life, crime, and mayhem. We compliment each other. He is loud and a talker. I am quiet and an observer.
In 2007, at age 22, my dream of getting married came true. In 2008 and 2009 my dream of becoming a mother became true! In 2009 we bought our house!
By 2009 all my childhood dreams came true. I have all that I ever wanted and I am truly grateful for it. Sometimes I forget how lucky I am of living the life I lead. Sometimes I forget to enjoy life and let stress lead the way.
I love my life and wouldn’t change any bit of it…I love my family, love my friends, love my boys. Life couldn’t be any better! I guess you can call me lucky!
In which ways would you say you are lucky?
