I am flirting with 30, have been married for almost 10 years (May 2011). I have three beautiful boys, Dylan (6) Aidan (5) and Owen (3). My husband Jake is in the Air Force, so in June of 2001 we moved to Missouri where we lived for three years. We moved back home summer of 2004 and were there for four years while Jake was a recruiter (most evil job in the Air Force!!). We moved to Minot North Dakota in April of 2008 and so far we love it, despite the winters lasting 6+months. Basically my life is about my boys and my husband and being a military family, with all the ups and downs that come along with that. I wouldn’t change it for anything though.
I love to read. I tend to get sucked into the computer once I turn it on. I love to lurk blogs. I could sit for hours and read them. I run around burning my candle at both ends most days. I love mexican food. I change my hair style CONSTANTLY….this my husband has learned to live with. 😆 I am messy and struggle with keeping things in order. What other useless things can I think of??? OH yeah, I can pick things up with my toes… ha ha. I love my boys more than anything, more than I thought I could. Nobody warns you about that kind of love. My life is stressful and busy and chaotic, but at the end of the day….I love it.
It’s funny how you think your childhood friends will be your friends forever…. while some still are, you find this whole huge world full of great people who become friends you wonder how you ever lived without. I love my life now, and while some days are hard and I want to pull out my hair, overall, it’s all I ever wanted. I only ever wanted to have a family, be a mom, and make them happy. The rest was just a backup plan. When I look at my husband and my babies faces, I know I have the perfect life, no matter what life throws at us.
So here’s to my God and my favorite guy ever, Jake, and to my beautiful babies…. may I always make you happy.
