4 Day Countdown To One Year Anniversary – Communication

Making Memories Countdown to One Year Anniversary Brandy & Mike

The learning how to communicate for the first time with someone who isn’t backing out, who is in this for the long haul has probably been one of the most difficult parts of our relationship for me. You see, I can talk your ear off, I am great at rambling but when it comes to having an actual conversation that could seem to be a confrontational topic I either shutdown or get defensive. It’s just how I have always been with certain topics. When it comes to a relationship, I am Mom and I am me, it’s been so many […]

5 Day Countdown – To One Year Anniversary

About Brandy Ellen

This coming Saturday will be our one year anniversary and boy it seems like portions flew by while other days went by slowly. We have had ups and we have had downs. There are many things about this relationship that were new for both of us. For starters, I never had much luck trying to date someone who didn’t have their own kids in the past. It just wasn’t something I had felt like venturing into again. I also ended up not having such luck dating someone with kids. To be fair, it seems I have had a blend of […]

{Personal Story of the Past} I was That Little Girl #divorce #parents #abuse

Divorce or separation hits everyone differently. This goes with death and birth. Each human being, whether grown adult or child, responds to life’s challenges quite differently. Being unique is what sets us apart from each other, yet also makes us work together very well. The story I wish to share today is from my memory banks of many moons ago. A young girl, around age 12, was found with two parents being divorced. While this young girl could totally see that her parents were better off apart due to a multitude of reasons, she still missed her Dad terribly. This […]

Shopping for Bras is Difficult

I seriously have issues finding the Best bra possible for me which is why all too often I speak of having a breast reduction. Lately I have been purchasing my bras online because it’s just so much easier than heading to store that sells my bra size because usually that store is more than 45 minutes away from me. As a person who has had three children I have the curves and all of the fun body angles, as I like to call them, that run in my family more so after you have given birth to children. It’s so […]

True Love Stories

I read a blog post called An Old Fashioned Love Story today and it simply gave me goosebumps. It is funny how today many have lost touch of what true love is, we get all caught up in finances, life, raising children and other challenges life throws at us that we simply neglect each other or forget to remind our loved one the reason we fell for them in the first place. A relationship takes work, no matter how in love one can be, you need to keep that romance alive. Romance in a relationship can be something as little […]

Not Now … I’m Busy

Last night my daughter asked me a question that only comes around once a month, if I’m lucky. The question was “Mommy will you snuggle with me”. When this question is asked I am often found responding that I am busy, I have to get my work done. I work at night while the children sleep, and am often up beyond midnight working or trying to find money due to my husband no longer working his full time job. Last night when she asked and I started to utter the “I am busy” response, I stopped, shut my mouth and […]
