My first therapy session....

So today instead of pretty clothes, shoes, and makeup I thought I would take a moment and talk about some real life shit!  Now don't get me wrong, I love pretty clothes, shoes, and makeup because honestly, it's my favorite thing to talk about (probably because it's a heck of a lot easier to talk about). 

The thing is, I feel like I've always been an open book with you guys.  I have no problem sharing it all, and I've never been ashamed of the fact that I have issues.  Hell, we all do, but most of us usually choose not to talk about it.  Personally, when I do decide to talk about it I feel so much better...feels good to get it off my chest. 

So here we go...........

A fews months back Todd and I decided that we wanted to go see a therapist together.  And no, not because we are on the rocks or have a troubled marriage, but because we realize that we both have our own issues and we feel that some guidance along the way certainly couldn't hurt anything.   As for any issues we may be struggling with, we want to stay a team and support each other.  Going to therapy by yourself is probably great and may work better for some, but having my partner by by side just felt better to me.  He's always been my biggest fan, my best friend, and truly my soulmate.  And no, I promise this isn't going to be a 'let me tell you how awesome #shirtlesstodd is' post :) 

Our first therapy session was last week.  It was amazing.  Our therapist was a hard one to get in with, but we knew we wanted her.  I am not sure exactly what it was in that first session, but it has me itching to go back.  You know, like that first time you try Dippin Stix as a kid, and you are just dreaming about the next time you can get your hands on one again.  Yeah, probably a bad example, but you get what I am trying to say.  I can already see that this is going to be life changing, that is, life changing in the best possible way. 

I am so excited to learn more about Todd and the way he feels and thinks (he's not quite the open book I am).  I am also excited to learn more about myself.  I am ready to dig really, really deep and tell you guys more about this girl behind the blog.  You are my people, the ones who come here daily to read what I have to say, to see my family, help support my family, and some of you have even followed along as far back as when I gave birth to two beautiful babies.  So at the end of the day, I want to know that I am being the best me I can be, for me, my family, and for all of you guys. 

Thank you all so much for allowing me to always be real with you guys.  Perfection is for the birds, and ain't nobody got time for that ;)
