Two Years Later

I just realized that it was just two years ago that I started my blog. December 7, 2006 was my very first post. I then looked at the next post and had to laugh at it. It was written two years ago today and I am laughing at how retarded I was. I am so amazed at the different direction my life has taken and so happy that I am no longer in the situation I was two years ago.

I am in awe at how much I have grown and how much things have changed. Two years ago I was a little party animal. I was always out, always drinking, living on my own without a care in the world other than my next social event. I had a shitty roommate and lived in a crappy neighborhood in a cute place that I tried to make home but was never home. I never cooked, I never went grocery shopping, I went as long as I could between doing loads of laundry, I was totally irresponsible at work, and the list goes on. The only time I went to the store is when I needed more alcohol and only then would I decide to get something to eat and it never was that healthy.

Two years later I am married to the most wonderful man ever. I no longer have to look for my special someone, my other half. I have him, I snuggle him every single night and am lucky to share all my life experiences with him. I have been blessed with two beautiful, wonderful step-children that I couldn't love more if they were my own. I honestly couldn't imagine my life without Swae or Seth and would honestly go insane without them. On top of that, we have a beautiful baby girl on the way that will soon be completing our wonderful family. I grocery shop on a regular basis, I make dinners (healthy ones even), I am constantly doing laundry, I no longer just think of myself, I now live for the kids and my little girl on the way, I am starting to be more organized and not procrastinate as much, I am not a regular downtown, drinking is no longer a main thing in my life. My family is my life.

I never would have thought that I would be where I am right now. I thought it would come later in life. I would NEVER change it for anything though...EVER. It just blows me away how fast time flies and all that can happen and change.

It is truly amazing how much we can evolve in such a short time span. Life is pretty great, huh?
