For Day 2 I have to explain the meaning behind my blog name. It's pretty self explanatory really, I blog about my life, my loves and my scrapping. I added the catch line - just the way I see it, as sometimes my look on these is rather quirky!
And for Day 3 I'm blogging about my first love. WOW...that takes me back a number of years! I was still at school actually. I fell in love with the guy of my dreams - tall, dark, and very handsome. He was one of the guys in my youth group at church. We had an awesome relationship for around 8 years, and I thought he was going to be the one I spent the rest of my life with. My family loved him, we were constantly together, had so much in common and it was just expected that we would get engaged and be married. We'd already bought some land together, and were planning for our future. But sadly that wasn't to be. He fell in love with someone else, and our relationship fell apart. It took many, many, many years for me to get over it. We don't have contact today, and I often wonder what he's done with his life, and whether he married the 'other' girl. I don't think you ever forget your first love!
But life moves on, and once I could reflect impartially, I realise how wrong my life would have turned out! I wouldn't have had all the wonderful opportunities that have come my way. I'm a firm believer that things happen for a reason, and the course that my life has taken is exactly the way it should be. I can't imagine my life any other way. While my husband wasn't my first love, he is definitely my real love!
I'll be back tomorrow with a couple more days and then I'll nearly be caught up with the rest of the girls.
