i'm back; the start of the crucial parts

I love writing. I love it almost more than any other hobby. And so I am thrilled that, for a few months, I will have a little bit of spare time to dust off my old lap top (I literally had to dust it off haha) and catch up on my blog writing.

I feel like so much has happened since the last time that I wrote on here regularly and I'm so excited to revisit all of the exciting "new" things that I've learned and special moments that have occurred in the past two years.

Since the last real updates I posted on my blog were of my single-mothering years, I think I will start there. Mine and Haven's life the past 2-3 years has been an exciting whirlwind of changes, full to the brim of some wonderful 'ups' as well as a few heart-breaking 'downs'. I feel deep gratitude in my heart for where Haven and I are today.

With that being said, I guess the most crucial part of my story in recent years involves my decision to date and then marry a man named Hunter Samuel Olsen.

Hunt was a game changer for me during a time when I didn't think the game could be changed. I was content with where I was and, though others had tried, I was too afraid to open my heart to anyone again. I am forever grateful that Hunter changed that, though.

Because marrying him was one of the best decisions that I have ever made in my life.

Stay tuned for a few glimpses into "our story" <3.

Some of it's pretty sappy and sugary. So if you're emotionally diabetic, I would avoid it ;)
