Visions of Marital and Motherhood Bliss Danced in Her Head

>> Friday, May 28

Depending on what day of the week or what mood I was in when you ask me, I used to think I didn’t want to get married and have children. I think that has to do with the leftover sour taste in my mouth from my previous relationship but over the last week or so, I’ve been really mulling over the possibility of what married life and motherhood would be like, especially with BD. I’m not viewing in my sugary fantasy, constant and continuous marital bliss or motherhood perfection because I know it won’t be, and I’m okay with that. When you work in the industry I work in, dealing with weddings and special events, you only get one opportunity to make it perfect and there are no room for excuses or mistakes; so it’s a little hard for me to turn the perfection machine off when it comes to my personal life outside of work.


Dating with Children

If my relationship with BD weren’t hard enough with me having to worry about him because of his job as an officer, throw into the mix that he is also a father to a young son. If our relationship were to progress to a far more serious level like marriage, then not only would I be sharing my life with BD, but I would also be sharing my life with his son, his son’s brother, his son’s mom and her family. BD comes as a family unit and I would definitely happily embrace the whole unit, no questions asked, because I love BD very much. I can’t take one without the other and I wouldn’t want to. Not only is BD raising his son but he is also a great male role model for his son’s brother. That is the kind of man he is and the kind of heart BD has and one of the many, many reasons why I love him. I truly honor him for having the courage and being there for someone else’s son and being a shining example of a man.


What I've Been Up To

Well, I clearly have bee absent from the blog for more than a month. I have been super busy adjusting to some new changes in my life. I’ve moved into a new apartment, which I have to admit I absolutely love. I started a new job, after having been offered several jobs in Dallas, TX; Savannah, GA; Hilton Head, SC and Atlanta, GA. It was touch and go for a minute because I ABSOLUTELY did not want to leave Atlanta. I even had decided to move to Dallas (I cried to BD for 2 weeks because I had made Atlanta my home for the past 8 years and I didn’t feel it was time to go yet). I was one week out from moving to Dallas when I got a job offer in Atlanta that I felt was a better fit. Even though I turned down quite a bit of money to stay in Atlanta, I don’t mind at all. I do what I do because I love it not because I only want the money. There is nothing like the flexibility of being in the hotel/hospitality/ tourism industry. I can still do my job and focus on launching my business, so for that I am truly thankful. I’m happy I decided to stay because for right now this is where I need to be. 

Even though I’ve had to put Nursing School on hold for right now, I have some huge projects that I’m working on right now outside of work and I am so SUPER DUPER excited about them. I’m redesigning and launching my business (YAY!!!!), I also have another project I’m working on that I can’t discuss until everything is finalized, just know that it’s HUGE and is a really, really big deal. When it’s all said and done, what I’m working on will be available WORLDWIDE and I can’t even begin to tell you how excited I am. I can’t wait to share the details.

As far as BD and I go, we have been going great. I can’t speak for him entirely but I think he would agree with me when I say that we have definitely built and are continuing to build upon a strong and solid foundation for our relationship. I find something new to fall in love with him for everyday. He is an absolute gentleman and words cannot express how much I care about him deeply. Everything seems to be going great and I love the connection I feel between BD and I right now. He makes me feel like a princess. 

Other than the move, new job and BD and I growing our relationship stronger; life has been the same. I feel like I’m in a really good place where everything is working out beautifully. I have nothing to complain about at all. I’m just sitting back and FINALLY, for the first time in a couple years, just completely and thoroughly enjoying life and everything in it.
