I 'm a 30 year old mom of two kids and married to a wonderful man.Living in a different country is hard for me,made merealize what i was missing from the smell of the bbq on the street to the shouts and laughter of the kids and teenagers playing tag in the moonlit night. The sweet noise of my mum calling or be it shouting my name.
Have you heard of the saying "Always the bridesmaid but never the bride?". I almost believed that for the reason that I was a bridesmaid for the longest time. I was a bridesmaid 9 times and 3 out of those times I caught the brides bouquet. After my 9th time as a bridesmaid it became a family joke that I can start my own bridesmaid boutique due to all the dresses I have in my closet. I was fortunate enough to have family and friends who wanted me to be a part of the bridal entourage. Like the movie "27 Dresses" I had about 5 bridesmaid dresses in my closet and I loved wearing all of them. I may not have looked as breathtaking as the bride but my dresses were made to fit me. So I guess 9th time is the charm, I am not married for 4 years this coming Valentines to the love of my life. Since I was a bridesmaid so many time it makes me wonder if my kids are going to take after me, lol. It will be great in a way so my kids don't get married early or I won't see my girls walking down the aisle. We will have to leave it to destiny to unfold itself.
