How Did We Get Here?

I have always told that I should write a book about my life and the ridiculousness that transpires in it….  Because I feel like for your average person, there happens to be a very peculiar amount of madness that happens in my life.    I have been through a LOT in my 29 years on this planet, and could write for days, months, or years even.   Hell, I sat down a few years back to write a simple back story for a character that I created on a MMORPG and it ended up being an eighty thousand word novel.  This novel is currently unpublished because I am not convinced it is perfect yet, and maybe one day when my life decided to stop throwing me curve balls I can sit down and finish it, but for the time being my life is chaos, and while it is, why not write about it!?

So I am a 29 year old mom of two girls, Annie and Piper.  I got married the first time at 23, was kicked out of my house by my ex-husband with my 2.5 month old baby 7 months later (yes, you do the math.  I WAS pregnant when we got married) and met the most amazing man that I could have possibly asked for when my oldest daughter was 6 months old.  As a matter of fact, if I had sat down and asked God himself specifically for a partner, I could not have hand-painted a more perfect man.  Granted Husband has his flaws, as we all do.  I did marry a human at the end of the day.  That being said though my biggest fear when I separated from my ex was finding a man that loved my child and respected her as much as I did.  Well I found that and SO MUCH MORE in my Husband and I thank my lucky stars every day.

Here we are years later and we have another child, Piper,  who is now almost 4 years old.  Our relationship is strong and life, as chaotic as it is has a poetic way of eventually working out.

DISCLAIMER:  I cuss, my house is usually a disaster, and I love each and every person I meet way more than I probably should.  I am a flawed human being, and every choice that I have made the past year has been what I felt has been the best for my family.  Many of them have been do or die, but they have been the best of what we could do with the cards that we have been given.  I may come off as brash or “salty” as my sister likes to call me, but at the end of every day I honestly try to be a friend to everyone that I meet.

That being said……

At 29 years old, I have decided that picking up our life here and moving to Scotland, my Husband’s home, is the best option for our family.

This blog will be the verbal account of how this all has transpired and come to be, how it has all worked out, and what our daily life is like, living as an American Abroad in the UK.
