100 Days: A Look Back At Love

Single Mom Finds Love

As I prepare for the future, I took some time today to look back. One of the biggest benefits of being a blogger is having a digital time capsule of my life. My posts tell the stories of a single mom who didn’t know that she wanted love, but who found it anyway. I have bared my heart with you all on this blog, I’ve learned how to be a better mom by working through some challenges on this blog. Today, I celebrate the fact that I have a written record of the relationship that I have with the man that I’m going to marry…from the very first day I met him. I chose a few of those posts to share with you all today…100 days from my wedding day.

This post was written the day after I met Terrence. He and I talked in the lobby of the hotel we were both staying at for a conference, and when I went up to my room later, I all of a sudden remembered that I was not just a MOM, I was also a WOMAN. Yes, honey, I was feeling good!

Just a few weeks later, I was already smitten. I wrote a poem, y’all. Oh my goodness! Schoolgirl, much? I know, I know!

The Crush – A Poem

As Terrence and I were still learning each other way in a long distance relationship, I made the distinct choice not to be marriage material. Turns out, that works!

Marriage Material? I’d Rather Be Brandi Material. 

A few months later, though, I was putting marriage in the universe.

Love, Marriage Meet Universe

Soon after, things got real.

But, I was still scared. I was scared out of my mind, y’all.

I’m Moving My Cheese. And My Child. And I’m Scared.

Things worked out, though! Even though we were living together, I elevated my expectations. I KNEW I wanted more, and I let him know that I wouldn’t expect anything less.

Stop Settling and Be Amazing. 

So now, I’m not stressing.

I Will Not Stress Out Over This Wedding

I am not in this alone.

I did not know you back then and am not even sure that C2E was around then, but you have always been such an interesting and smart business person. Loved reading this story of how you met your husband. So awesome!!
