The Move In.

In my previous post I talked about "5 Things They Don't Tell You About Moving In Together." I wanted to take a step further in today's post to tell you a more detailed account of things I did and have noticed about the days following the move in with my ex (almost) husband.

When we were dating and before we got married my ex (almost) husband was all about getting married after we graduated college and started a career. He was in school to become a physical therapist and it would have taken more than 5 years to complete all the schooling, etc. that he needed to start a career.

... then less than 6 months later we found out that I was pregnant with my now 3 year old... and he proposed. THIS was a red flag for my parents... why I did not listen? I don't know.

I honestly don't even remember them saying anything about it.

Other before we were married things I knew but never addressed... I knew he was a cheater. I found videos, images, text messages, etc. on his p…

Shoes... January 25th

It has been a while since I posted. Sorry for the absence! This week has been crazy. I started school, I stopped serving on the weekends, and I have been searching for a second part time job that is not serving!

This post has been on my mind for a few weeks. You will notice that it was posted on social media and I never actually posted a blog post about it.

Anyways, I was dressing my daughter one morning and I thought... I always pick out her clothes, BUT she always picks out her shoes. She has SOOO many pairs of shoes. Her collection includes faux leather boots, fuzzy boots, high top cheetah print converses, pink flats, purple toms and a few others. She always has a pair in mind that she has to wear that day! No matter what!

There was an entire week where one day it was cold, the next day warm, and then one day it was hot enough outside that I put a dress on her. What shoes did she choose to wear with her dress? Her purple Timberland boots! Needless to say her babysitter thought it was adorable and of course at three years old she can pull anything off.

So the point is I allow my daughter to choose her shoes or in other words her path in life. If we don't allow mistakes to happen then lessons won't be learned.

"Give a girl the right pair of shoes and she will conquer the world." - Marilyn Monroe

I plan to give my daughter the right shoes, because I know that one day she will conquer mountains in this world. Every time I put shoes on her in the morning I think of this quote.

Empower the women in your life. Give them confidence in every decision (pair of shoes) they choose to take on. Give feedback, without insult. Words that hurt don't go away easily.
