Ten years ago on this day, I was
...madly in love with this guy I met via an online personals ad he answered two year prior.
... kinda dreading turning 30.
... dreaming of a day when that guy would pop the question.
... dreaming of a day I'd become a mom.
... dreaming of a day I'd get the hell out of the dead end job I was in.
... worrying about, talking to on the phone with, and spending as much time on the weekends as possible with my little munchkin man booger butt 9-year-old nephew of mine.
... looking forward to when this guy I fell in love with would drive 70 miles out to my place on a Friday after work in horrendous Chicago rush hour traffic to be with me again.
... having lots of sex with this guy I fell in love with.
... unknowingly about to be surprised with a dream vacation to MAINE in October (prime foliage season, yo!) with that guy I fell in love with.
Life was pretty damn good 10 years ago. It was all still new and fresh. It wasn't anything like it is now, today, 10 years later. Nope.
Today... 10 years later...
all of my dreams have come true.
