I was over on pinterest the other day (aren’t we all) and I came across this saying and it got me thinking. When I was a little kid maybe 5ish I was going to be a Doctor than when I was a teenager I was going to be a lawyer, than when I finished school I got a job in an accounting firm. My dream growing up was always to be a successful woman and I defined that by my job, I dreamed of wearing beautiful clothes to work, I dreamed of living in a mansion and having the fanciest cars and the  coolest clothes. Children were not on my agenda well at least not till I was well into my thirties and I was not a little girl that planned her wedding. I do not remember ever marrying by barbie to ken, I do remeber her being a doctor a rock star the list of careers goes on.

But I hit a bump in the road when I was 21 in what I thought was going to be my dream life. I feel pregnant with B and unbeknown to me the beginning of my dream was starting to map itself out. It still had a few hiccups to sail through but it was well on it’s way, when I became a mother for the 1st time.

Fast forward 3 years and my dream really takes off when I meet the man of my dreams Mr C. He is the most amazing kind caring man I have ever known and I fell in love, he has a son and together we make a family of 4 and I thrive on being part of our family. Mr C and I decide we want another blessing and start trying for a girl.

9 months later little princess is born and I become a stay at home mum, a homemaker. My dream has arrived I am living it. It is not what I expected my life to be but I can not think of anywhere I would rather be than right here with my wonderful family. My life is not perfect by far but it is perfect to me. I love every moment of it even the 2hourly feedings little princess’ is still doing, because one day they will stop and I’ll miss them. I’m so thank-ful this dream found me and with it being mine and Mr C’s anniversary tomorrow I couldn’t imagine a place I’d rather be than right here at home.

I hope everyone out there has found their dream, was it what you originally had in mind? I’d love to know!

  1. What a lovely post! When I started reading you reminded me of a post I wrote a couple of years ago. You see when I was a little girl I wanted to marry a farmer so I could have a horse. Funnily enough I have some hilarious run ins with horses over the years and of course I never did marry that farmer. I did marry very young and we had 5 beautiful children. Children are indeed a blessing. I would not know a life without them or my man who is of course not a farmer, mind you I am trying to convert him, but I don’t want a horse! LOL . 🙂 Happy Anniversary to you both.

    If you would like to check out my horse story and where I ended up…here is the link to the old post.


  2. Happy Anniversary! 🙂 You are blessed to have a home that makes you smile, full of love, and a little princess as well! 🙂

your lovely thoughts are much loved xx
