Thanks everyone! I'm so excited to finally have a lodge- I've been looking forward to this for quite a while! Sorry I have been mia- we're right in the middle of moving (we bought our first house!) and just finally got the computer hooked up in a temporary spot tonight!
Anyways, I'm Melissa, age 26(I just had my b-day on Friday!), DH is Chad, 29, and DD Michaela, 4. I met Chad when I was 12, and he was 15, through a mutual friend. We went on sort of a double date, but nothing came of it, since I was just 12, and a bit of a late bloomer at that! I remember once when I was in high school, I went with a bunch of friends to the fair, and rode the ferris wheel with Chad. He waited till it stopped at the top, then asked if I would "go steady" with him. I waited till we got off the ride, then told him I wasn't ready to date. Of course, less than a week later I was dating someone else! Honestly, I think Chad and I were meant to be together, just not that soon! Eventually, he went off and disappeared from my life, until I was 19, working at the local grocery store. He noticed me working there, and sent a mutual friend to get my number, and called me that night to ask me to a movie. After the movie, we went back to his place and talked for hourse-it was so comfortable between us! When he dropped me off at home, we kissed, and I just knew. He is my...I hate to use soul mate, because that sounds so trite. But that's pretty much it. He's also my very best friend in the whole wide world!
Just after I turned 20, we moved away together, and when I was 21, I got pregnant with Michaela. She was born February 4th, 2003, a month before my 22nd birthday. To this day, I firmly believe that a woman has no idea the depth of love she can feel until she holds her child in her arms.
So, that's some of my story, I'll come on another time to share Michaela's birth story, and to update on how everythings going as I count down the days to this baby's birth. Thanks for sharing this time with me!
Hey Melissa! What a great story, and a good thing Chad was so persistent! I love your story.
