Reaching Adulthood...

Yesterday was my 23rd Birthday, and for the first time, I actually thought to myself, "Wow... 23... that's almost mid-twenties. You're really an adult now."
You would think I would have felt like an adult when I said,"I do" 20 days before my 20th birthday or when I gave birth to a beautiful little girl nearly 2 years ago, but I didn't. Up until this past year, my life had been a whirlwind of bliss. And while the blissful moments continue to leave me in awe, I've been struck down by chaos.
This past year in my life has been very difficult for me. I have struggled with some very personal issues with myself and with my family. Over the next couple of days, I will be giving you the insight into my life over the past year. It's going to be the most Raw Mama Drama I have ever shared.... with anyone. You'll get a front row seat to who I really am.
Bare with me as this will be difficult for me to share, but I think it will end up being very therapeutic for me to do so.


  1. Happy birthday! Despite a tough year, just look at where you are at now- you couldn't have gotten to this point without the chaos!

  2. Thank you Kristen. You are so right! That part makes me feel better. I know that I have overcome a lot, and I'm a stronger and better person for trudging through it.

  3. I found your blog in the Fun Follow Friday hosted by Simply Stacie and My Wee View. First of all Happy Belated Birthday, Second - we seem to have alot in common. I was married at 20 and had my first child at 21 - I am now 24 (I have 2 little boys) and have recently struggled with some really personal issues. I look forward to reading your posts, maybe I will finally not feel alone - or like I am the only one going through this. Good luck with everything and stay strong. The one quote that got me through this was "You never know how strong you are, until being strong is the only choice you have". Keep your head up girly and just know that your not alone!!
