Monday is back again. I tell you it comes too soon every week. It's the one day of the week when it seems to be extra hard to get out of bed. Last week we tried to make Sunday that new Saturday and had a last minute bbq with some friends. All I will say is that Sunday will not be taking the place of Saturday for a very long time. That particular Monday was awful. I will add that I loved seeing our friends and for that, it was worth it. We had such a great time.

I'm going to try a new weekly post. I'm not sure what the title will be but I would love to have you play along. I often have these random thoughts and usually keep them to myself. They usually start out with "I wonder what would happen if" or "I wonder what it would be like to.." I thought it would be fun if I asked the question and gave a subject and then let you answer with your thoughts. What do you think?

I say let's try it!

In the future I may add a "Mr. Linky" widget but for now let's just use the comment section.

I grew up being told that I didn't have to go to college. I was 18 and got a great job as a government contractor. It was there that I met my husband. We met, were engaged 2 weeks later, and then married 5 months later. We then moved to the West Coast about a month after we were married. Hubby was NOT in the military, nor was I pregnant. We were just young and in love. He was an intern at the government agency I was contracted to and from the Northwest so he had to go back to school. Once we moved he said I had to go to college. Great.

I wonder what my life would be like today, 11 years later, had we not met. To be honest, I'm not sure. I would probably still be on the East Coast. Probably still doing government work. Not sure that I would have ever picked up on blogging, cooking, or scrapbooking. I wouldn't have my beautiful little girl. I know for sure that I wouldn't have gone to college. The only good thing would be I would still be near my family. I miss them so much. I was so mad when my hubby told me I had to go to college. I didn't want to. I went. It was such a long road. The person I became because of going to college is a person that I never thought I could be. I'm so glad I met my husband. Would I do it all over again? That's a question for another day!

What do you think your life would be like had you not met your special person?


  1. I wish I had that special person like you do :) but in saying that I am thankful to me ex boyfriend for the people he introduced me too. I made friends with some girls who I would never have associated myself with and I am so thankful that now I am more accepting of others because of befriending them :)

  2. If I hadn't met John I wouldn't have 2 handsome little boys, I probably wouldn't have had the homebirths that I did, and I might not have realized my calling to midwifery. My entire life would be completely different if John and I hadn't have met and fell in love. :)


I love reading your comments!
