Hi there,
I'm still finishing up college and living life to the fullest everyday.
I'm outgoing and shy
a failure and a success
I'm out there and young at heart but also mature and with it.
I have a dog named Axel, an American Bulldog, who has a mug that is so adorable only a momma could love it!! <3
And my significant other who is the love of my life, Dustin, is my one true love!
I am beyond lucky to have him here for me.
Life has a way of surprising you from out of nowhere sometimes and this seems to be the case with my life in general but I love surprises so it's not all bad :)
With Dustin it really was love at first sight and even though we haven't been together for very long yet I wouldn't have it any other way!
We are officially expecting as of today, October 18th, 2011.
I'm nervous and excited and thinking "Holy crap! I am going to be someone's mom???"
I love children as does Dustin, I know we can do this, it's just a matter of time, acceptance, and learning along the way... So here we go, I'm strapped in and ready for this crazy ride to get started!
