10 years ago...


 ...I had been living life!

I worked at a restaurant in the evenings. I stayed up late {night owl}, then woke up for class, then headed to work around  2:30 p.m.

I had been dating a great guy {puppy love with butterflies} for the past 9 months! I wanted to spend every waking moment with him. I pretty much knew I wanted to marry this guy. I would get off work on Fridays and drive 2.5 hours to see him at college. He was worth every mile!

 I had been recovering from knee surgery and doing physical therapy 2 times a week. {skiing accident}

I was living with my best friend! We always had a blast together and had great girls nights! We were inseparable {double trouble}. We had been friends for almost 8 years and...and yet I didn't know a fall out was soon to come.
  
 I was free from high school, but being weighted down by college. I somehow dragged myself to class each day, but didn't want to be there. I did the bare minimum.



I had dreams for where I wanted my life to be in 10 years...

I wanted a family {to be a young mom}, I wanted a dog {actually I wanted 2, but one will do for now}, I wanted a house {in a cul-de-sac}, I wanted to live close to my family, I wanted to be a teacher {I consider being a daycare provider, is pretty close}....

I wanted all of this...

Guess what?!

I got it ALL!
My life is picture perfect {my dreams come true}!

I am Blessed...Happy...Loved...living the dream!

This makes me smile...I often think about what I wanted 10 years ago and I've gotten everything I wanted too! How did we get so lucky? This post made me realize its okay to be happy (and know) you have it all and not feel guilty...because sometimes I do!
