Today I woke up in one of those hazy fuzzy moods. The kind where you are fine until you have to interact with people. As an introvert interacting with people takes a lot out of you and would have made me extra grumpy.

He knew of course, because he knows everything about me. He gave me that look. The one that feels like he’s scanning my whole body to find that 1 piece of me that wants to have a great day and be in a good mood. His eyes flickered and we were off.

He never once brought up my mood. Only allowed me to have my day. After going to breakfast, 9 holes of golf, and a trip to the dog park in a haze. I was home again and laying on the couch trying to find something on Netflix when he walked over. Gave me this quick hug and left for the other room to play his Xbox. This is one of those days where I was reminded that my partner-in-crime will be there on my good days and bad. Because life isn’t always sunshine and rainbows. Life is sticky and everyone isn’t always “on” all the time.


The First

OK, here’s the rundown. My posts may be daily, they may be only a few times a week, I’m not 100% sure on what’s going to happen.

Now that we have that out of the way. I’m a 20 something. Trying to figure out life. Finding my “purpose”, I guess. Balancing having a life with keeping my finances in check while not being burdened by The 40 Hour work week.

I live in the Midwest with my fiancé (or as I like to call him, my hubs) and our 4 legged kid. I work the grind at a job that pays the bills and look forward to friday happy hours every once in a while (still on a budget).

I’m in my late 20’s and prior to getting engaged I received the incessant “when are you getting engaged?”, “why haven’t you started a family?”, and my favorite “why don’t you want children now?” questions. We all know the chatter.

I like where I’m at in my social life and enjoy going places on a whim (as long as their dog friendly) with my favorite person and the doggo. So sue me. I have my little family already and I’m perfectly OK with it.

My friend group is pretty small too and I like that. I met a couple friends in college when we wound up as roommates and we never really lost sight of each other. I watch as they go off and make their own way through the world. Adventuring into the unknown.

We all had a FIRST after college whether that was “first time you quit a job you despised”, “first time you figured out the dude you dated in college wasn’t The One”,  or “first time you stressed over going to happy hour or paying the electric bill.”. Daily life of a fresh out of college grad trying to figure shit out.

Those days were rough and sometimes they still are… Cheers!
