I met my loving Husband 5 years ago next month at a private party where he was the guitarist in one of the biggest entertainment bands in Detroit. Need I say it was love at first sight? Two years had gone by since my mom had passed when I met my husband 5 years ago. I was twenty two and I was running the rat race. I had tried to go back to college. I applied and talked to everyone I could and "they" all pitifully said, "unless I had a baby (OH! and not that they condoned it... yeah right!) or got married, I was still qualified under my fathers tax bracket until the age twenty five" (even though I lived on my own, worked 2-3 jobs and was no longer under my fathers income)! Twenty Five! Three years seemed an eternity away! While all of my friends were already graduating from under graduate studies, I was still stuck in my second semester of College from 2 years ago! So I did what I knew best... kept running the rat race. I went from cleaning office buildings to working in a really nice one as an office assistant until my Husband in a way rescued me of that life when he asked me to marry him and told me to follow my dreams. By this time, I had really got to know myself and what I loved and decided to follow my dreams and peruse a career in Photography. Its been a life long love that I thought little made an actual career out of. That is until a friend from work asked me to be a second shooter for her with her photography company and she taught me the ropes of the industry. Since then, I have been taking my passion, my love and turning it into my career and my own business. See I still am getting there.. I am still becoming the CEO of a company... My Company! It hasn't happened the way I had originally dreamed, not as fast and not in the direction I thought it was going to go... Life got in the way, but in the end, with perseverance, your dreams can still happen!
So How did I become an accidental House Mom?...
So if there were not already enough red flags being thrown and signs pointing in which direction I was to go... boy oh boy... Was God trying to speak to me or what! lol!
So, when my precious daughter arrived and I looked into her big beautiful blue eyes, I was taken back to the 4 months of when I took care of my mother and how those 4 months shaped my life and my understanding of true~real~pure love and the true meaning of life... I took that and made one of the biggest decisions of my life and one that effects my family's future.. and that is to be here full time for my daughter the same way my mother was there pouring her heart and soul into me full time for the first 20 years of my life. ~ I feel for the first time in my life I have a true purpose. It's not just to be my daughters mother but also her friend and life guide. ~ xoxo
