Greatest Hits

I've been blogging since 2007 so if you're new here, you've got a lot to catch up on.  I'll give you the Cliff Notes version to get you up to speed.

I started it all off here by swearing off all men for six months.

I blame this guy for a lot of the frustration and agony I had while single and dating.

I used to drink and party A LOT and struggled balancing the working-partying lifestyle.

I traveled to Europe with a friend of mine from high school and we had the ultimate Eurotrip.

I questioned my position in life and where I wanted to go.

I dated some REAL winners.

Somewhere along the way I started to figure out what I really wanted from life.

And then I started seeing Craig for who he really was and what my life could be like with him.

We bought a house and I was nervous for the future.

But I shouldn't have been because soon after we moved in, I got a ring....but we were engaged for over a year and wedding planning was exhausting.

And because we worked at the same school and were getting married, I had to change schools and take on new responsibilities.  But with that new job came a lot more stress and change but I did what I thought was best for my girls.

Craig and I became the proud new owners of our first family pet - Angie the dachshund/Jack Russell.

Together we traveled to the Bahamas, and Europe among other places.

We finally tied the knot in March of 2010.

And as we all know, after marriage comes that baby in the baby carriage and along with that pregnancy came extreme morning sickness and antepartum anxiety and worry.

I did the best I could to plan ahead but nothing could have prepared me for all the funny, the good, the bad, the guilt and even the ugly.  Settling into motherhood was far more difficult than I ever expected or anticipated.

But healing happens.

As for what's ahead....I'm still not sure....
