today was a lovely day! this was our 2nd mother's day together as a family and i never imagined that i would be even happier than the first. we are growing, evolving + becoming more aware of one another on this blended family journey. four years ago no one could've convinced me that my daughter and i would be a unit with such an amazing man. i didn't think i would ever see the day! i know that sounds dramatic but i was prepared to be a single mother forever. i had gotten to a point where i was more than ok with that. she and i were just fine on our mommy daughter voyage; until i found my partner. the possibilities became endless when his authentic warmth + kindness came into the equation. it was like he added the sprinkles to our already perfect ice cream sundae.
when we fell in love, my main concern was the kiddo and how blending our lives with another would work. it is working well for us. i feel blessed beyond measure to be the momma to a wonderful little girl and partner to an awesome man. having him around with us is such a treat! our families mesh wonderfully, my daughter is smitten by him (as he is her) and our connection gets stronger by the day. i couldn't have asked for a better mother's day with these two, as the years go on and we expand our tribe, i know they will just continue to get better.
