“I Knew I Loved You” by Savage Garden

I think this song came out when I was in middle school, maybe a little sooner. I remember listening to it while I wrote in my journal about my recent crush. It was another love ballad for the hopeless romantics. Then when I met my now hubby it became the song I thought of every time I saw him. It was over the moment I saw him, I knew I had to get him but wasn’t sure it was ever going to happen because of the age difference and the fact that he had kids. Never did I ever imagine actually getting what I wanted. I didn’t pursue him like I did other crushes, I just waited patiently. I think at some point I gave up on the idea of being with him, until I needed someone to help me move my new bed to my apartment. I still love this song and I still think of my hubby when I hear it. I hope you like it as much as I do.

There was a time in my life where I could not wait until I was twenty two. I couldn't imagine life after that because I was so focused on reaching my favorite number in age. Then something amazing happened to me. Shortly after I turned twenty two I got together with the love of my life. I had been dreaming of being with this man since the day I met him, and at sixteen I decided I wanted to marry him one day. Well, six months after we got together we married. A year after that, our son was born. So here I am, married, and with three children (he had two daughters prior to getting with me). And it occured to me one day, the reason why I couldn't see life after twenty two was because my life was meant to start over, and I wouldn't trade this life for anything. I write in this blog to let others know that step moms do have a voice, and to let everyone know that moms are not just robots, we have likes and dislikes, things we love and things we wish we could change. And of course, there are the hardships to being a parents. I will share all that and more on my journey of finding out what this new life has in store for me. Please enjoy!
