It was love at first sight.

That said, it was also many years earlier, while we were in college, so a few things had changed...only a couple small things like careers, marriage, kids, divorce...

Blending two broken families, working full-time, and building a new marriage at times felt like I was on a crazy train.

Was it hard? Yeah! Of course it was hard! Was it worth it? Without a question, I'm the luckiest girl in the world. Not only do I have the best marriage ever, I was given five kids, but only had to be pregnant once! Total bonus! (No, I was not one of those glowing pregnant women. Mine was horrendous, so this was a plus).

These five kids are what I'm most proud of, and my biggest accomplishment, but I didn't create this family; this family created me.

 

My heart is filled.

When my husband and I reconnected after 13 years, he was no longer a frat boy, but a successful dentist. He also had three small children, ages 5, 7 and 8. I had a thriving career in biotech and was a single mom of twin 3 year-olds.

I don't know where the years went, but they seem to have taken my babies, Kenny's hair and my hair color! 2018.
