vintage styled items to wear for cocktail party

What is a family?
.
Does blood make you a family?
.
When I was a little girl, I dreamed of my perfect life>>> you know those dreams that most little girls have... I would get married, have 10 babies and live happier ever after... True story I used to tell my Grandma I wanted 10 kids. UMMM WHAT WAS I THINKING! ...
.
But life for me didn't go as I had dreamed or planned, getting pregnant at 19 absolutely wasn't in the cards >>> honestly I was scared shitless... I had no idea what the hell I was going to do. For me I only had one option and that was to grow up real fast and be a mom!
.
The early years were hard... just plain hard... We lived paycheck to paycheck, I would charge things for Kalei just so she couldn't go without, because as her mom I didn't want her to suffer because I made a choice when I was 19, I wanted to provide her with the best life I could.
.
Then about 8 or is it 9 years now, hell I lost track... this man came into my life! I wasn't looking for a boyfriend, I wasn't looking for a man that was 9 years older than me that 1) never wanted kids 2) never wanted to be married and 3) wasn't sure about living w/ someone.. true story this was Matt's words to me...
.
But two weeks in I knew he was different, I know he was the one for US... not just for me, but for Kalei and I.... because you see being a single mom we were a package deal!!! Hello instant family, right?
.
But over the past few years something has happened to the three of us, we've learned to have an unconditional love for each other and a (true) family has been formed. Not from blood but simply from LOVE....
.
Because you truly do not need anything else... Matt never thought twice about "my kid" he never tried to get out when things were crazy, trust me he's been through a lot w/ me! But the most important thing has came out of this... Matt has a kid now... He looks at Kalei as his own and for a girl who had a baby and 19 and thought that I would be alone for the rest of my life, no one would ever want "baggage" Matt has stepped up in more ways than I could ever describe... vintage styled items to wear for cocktail party

We are so lucky to have him in our lives!

Love makes a family!
