Everything that happened leading up to this was a bumpy ride I will admit. But I wasn’t alone, I had the biggest supporters. My husband. He witnessed my struggle more than anyone and when I talked to him about what I wanted to do he fully supported it every step of the way. My parents. Without them, I literally couldn’t have done it. Even though I am an adult they have walked me through it in every way, shape, and form. My mom still tells me daily how proud of me she is. It keeps me going. My best friends. My close group of girlfriends has been so freaking amazing! I can’t even begin to tell you. Nicki, she’s like my second mom. She kept me strong & gave me daily advice. Melissa, she encouraged me to leap with grace & style. She is the best friend I could ever ask for. Karen, pregnant with twins, blogging & working all at the same time & she still found time to help me through the ups & downs. Maria, oh man Maria my step brother (inside joke) I honestly cannot thank her enough for every single thing she did to help me through this. words can’t express how thankful I am for her. She has the biggest heart ever.
I couldn’t be happier with the choice I made now. Looking back on things I wish I would have chosen this path sooner. Though everything happens for a reason I am so very excited about this journey. So what now? Now I am my OWN boss! I set my hours, I create my own break & lunch schedule, & bouns I can wear my pajamas to work 😉
