So it has been exactly 2 years today that I have posted. WOW, how time flies and how things change.
I was in a relationship that was going no where and now I have found the love of my life in the past two months and OMG, I can't believe how spectacular things are going.
I work with Wayne (in the picture) and have for about a year now. Little did I know he was watching me while I was working or just walking into the courtroom. He finally got the nerve to ask a co-worker of his if she knew me. Later that day we were emailing back and forth and the very next day we went on our first date. I so love first dates. First dates can be so unforgetable. We went to one of my friends' house after work for a few minutes before going to dinner, then we went to dinner and a walk in the park and just walked around and talked for HOURS!! He lives about an hour from the city I lived in and I felt bad because it was after midnight when he got home, and we had to work the next day. Our second date was Friday, May 20th...we went to the Dodger game. Well, needless to say, a lot of memories were created on the drive and when we got to the parking lot...my friend Christen had made me a drink for the 2 hour ride to the game and we stopped for me to use the restroom and I got another drink...well, by the time we got into the stadium, I had to use the restroom! There were so many cars in front of us and I felt like a kid doing the dance in the car when finally I found a space the little rental car could fit into. Thank goodness...oh wait...it was still too far from an entrance. Can you can say, BIG SUV? Yep, I totally went to the bathroom in the stadium. Oopsie!! :) Well, we finally got our seats and more beer and food to eat. But I had realized on the walk to the entrance that I had forgotten my sweater...Wayne totally bought me a sweatshirt later that evening. It was such a great night and I had a ton of fun. The Dodgers lost, but the night ended with fireworks after the game. The field was full of specators and we just stayed in our seats to watch. We took tons of pictures...oh wait, I took tons of drunk pictures. I didn't want to leave.
We made the 2 hour trip home to Bakersfield and we stayed at his uncles place. The next morning, Wayne drove me to pick up my vehicle. Since then we have been inseparable.
As you may remember, I was dating and living with this guy who turned out to be so impatient with me and my children and it got to the point where he didn't want to get married. Well after months of living with each other for a second time, it was time to call that relationship quits. I was asked by Wayne if he was the rebound relationship...I eloquently informed him that Chris was his own rebound relationship. I felt bad, but it was the actual truth.
Wayne and I have been together for just over 2 months and I can't believe I found another best friend. Wayne broke down all the walls around my heart and I his, and we are so happy together. I moved in within a month. We are so happy together and I can't imagine myself with anybody else. This relationship feels so comfortable and perfect that we are already talking about getting married next year. Between the two of us we will have 3 boys and 2 girls. I'm so excited. I feel I am already close to his daughters and it feels like we are truly one big happy family. We are slowly but surely getting the girls more often than what Wayne was getting them. I know it makes it easier on him. And he needs to be a huge part in their life. Just like I am in the boys' life.
I can't wait to blog about what's going on in our new family in the future. I'm so excited that I just want to share it with everyone.
I hope everyone had a great weekend and here's to the week ahead!! :)
