I have happily entered into the world of "seriously dating." :)
Over the last seven years, I've been on dates...many dates...lots of first dates, some second dates, and a handful of third dates. But most of the time by date #3 I've decided that for one reason or another things are going nowhere fast - some are pretty entertaining, some are jaw-dropping, and sometimes it was just plain, old I'm-not-feeling-this-so-let's-not-waste-each-other's-time. End of story.
This time things are different. He makes me happy, I'm pretty sure I make him happy, and we decided over a month ago to call things "serious." It's exciting and new and, to be completely honest, maybe even a little scary...this is uncharted territory for me! And maybe sometime soon I'll post more about that...
In the meantime, my apologies for getting wrapped up in my new relationship. But I'm loving life right now! I know some of you are reading this and thinking, "Seriously?! I so don't want to read about this because it's never going to happen for me and I'm so sick of hearing about everyone else's perfect life." I know some of you are thinking this because I've been in your shoes before and I totally get it. I hated hearing about all these super cute couples and everyone's picture-perfect life when I was struggling to be the sole parent for my daughter. So please forgive me. I will try to keep my relationship talk to a minimum, although I'm going to have to mention it from time to time. But also know that no matter where this new relationship leads, I will always have a passion for single parents because that's the life I've known for so long now. Someone recently asked me when they heard about the new beau, "What about the single mom program you help with at church? What will happen with that?" Well, it's gonna keep on going and I'm gonna keep on helping!
Even though my head may be in the clouds, I will try my darndest to get back on track and begin regularly posting again...I've missed the blogging world!
So welcome back, my dear readers, and I hope you'll welcome me back with open arms!
To celebrate my return and in honor of all my fellow amazing single mothers, I'm going to do my first give away this coming week...so stay tuned!
