Nothing about B and I is ever conventional, and this definitely includes everything from the way we met down to the proposal.
Okay guys, let me just preface this by stating that a few years ago I never thought I would get my life back on track. I had a baby fresh out of high school, (that relationship was shot down in flames). I was working a job that I hated as a receptionist for a doctors office making barely above minimum wage, while also attending school full time to become a medical assistant. I dated a few
losers in between then and now who just didn’t check off all (or any for that matter) of the requirements on my list. I was so discouraged, and to top that off I had moved back into my parents house again for the SECOND time. I felt like I was never going to be able to give my beautiful little baby boy the life he deserved while also catching up to my dreams and my life as I wanted it to be.
Fast forward 4 years, I am engaged to a man who not only met every expectation on my list, but far exceeded them. I have 8 months left until my Bachelor’s degree in Business and Accounting is complete (yeah, this is much more my style than the medical field). I work full time as an accounting specialist for a local school district, and I’m planning the wedding of my dreams. I have two boys who are the smartest, most handsome little fellows on Earth and I could not be more proud of them. It’s a constant reminder of how good I have it, and how appreciative I am for both of them.
SO- any young moms out there, relationships don’t always work out the way you expect them to. And no matter how hard you try to force it, kids don’t make people fall in love and they won’t guarantee that he is going to stay. But keep your chin up, and keep working your hardest every single day because one day you are going to wake up and you are going to be right where you’ve always been meant to be. You will be in a healthy relationship with someone who cares about you and your kid(s). Life turns itself around and teaches it’s lessons along the way, just trust the process.
Anyway, I digress…
Oh yeah, I was talking about our story.
December 31st, 2015: Two of my friends came over on NYE because Marek and I were staying in that night. After my parents and Marek all went to bed, the three of us stayed up playing cards and having a few Blue Moon’s. I remember telling them how cute I thought Brian was and how I think I should message him on Instagram. After being advised by both of them not to message him, I of course did it anyway because I don’t listen to anybody. Well, our conversation went from “what are your plans tonight” to “My number is ***-***-**** if it’s easier to text than Instagram message” and of course he is a boy so he fell for it immediately and he’s been trapped ever since then.
But all jokes aside, we’ve talked every day since then. So that’s that.
Tomorrow I’ll be back to post about our engagement surprise that still has me swooning over my hunk of burning love.
