Tonight will be the final blog for 2011 as I will be ringing in the new year with my husband and parents. Saying goodbye to the past and seeing hello to the most exciting year ahead. I have never looked ahead to a year as much as I am looking ahead to 2012.
As I began this evening’s blog entry I was realized that 5 months ago today I began this blog and my journey. So much has changed in the last five months. I am lost 30 pounds and have pretty much calmed my depression down to a very manageable level. I enjoy exercise now. I enjoy going to work every day. I have gone from a size 30 to a size 24 in pants. I have gone from a size 11 shoe to a size 9 1/2. My marriage with my husband is the strongest it’s every been. Thoughts of pregnancy seem real for once. Things are gotten better in so many areas. And Patrick also got an awesome new job where we are working the same hours and days. Sometimes I can’t believe that I was able to change my life around in just 5 short months. I know that 2012 is going to be an awesome year.
I honestly can not wait to wake up on Sunday morning, January 1, 2012, it will be a fresh start and I will be waking up next to the love of my life and best friend. It’s been years since we have been together on New Year’s Eve and gotten to wake up together on New Year’s Day. I will make sure to cherish these two events, there is no one I would rather be with. Patrick is the best thing that has ever happened to me. He is unlike any other person out there. He is the sweetest, gentlest, kindest person I have ever met. He also have the greatest sense of humor and always makes me laugh especially when I am feeling down. I feel safe when I am in his arms. He is my best friend and I am grateful that our paths crossed almost 8 years ago and that I get to spend the rest of my life with him by my side. I can’t wait until we have a family of our own, I know that Patrick is going to be an amazing father. He is already an amazing husband and friend. Thank you so much for all that you do Patrick, you have changed my life in so many ways. I can not wait to provide you with the ultimate gift, a child, that you and I created together…I hope them have your sense of humor and gentle heart. I love you.
