About Me

Welcome to my blog!  I'm Lindsey, in love with Eric, & young mother of 2 precious boys.  Their names are Braiden Luke & Andrew Dillon.

My Story: 

Thanks to failed birth control and uneducated decisions, I got pregnant twice as a teen.  Once at 15 years old and again at 17.  The first day I found out my first little boy, Braiden, was in my tummy - I knew I had to work hard to give him a life I didn't have.  His father and I were high school sweethearts but after 5 years & more than 10 incidents of getting cheated on, it ended.  We tried to make it work for our son, but without trust, you have nothing. I graduated high school in 2012, with my original class.  Shortly after, a summer fling turned into another positive pregnancy test, right before I went to college.  I had my 2nd son in 2013, Andrew, who pushed me even more to be the best mom I can be.  9 months after he was born, I was left abandoned with no money, an evacuation notice, and a set back.  But I did everything I could to be the best single mom to my beautiful boys.

Braiden Luke was born October 10th, 2010 and Andrew Dillon was born February 10th, 2013.

I had given up on love until I became friends with a girl named Katy, who "rescued" me in a way.  The first day I met her, I also met her brother.  His name was Eric.  He was tall, handsome, and sweet.  I fully believe for me, it was love at first sight.  18 months later, we are still together and fall more in love with each other each day.  I can truly say he is my best friend. 

Today we are living together in a small-(ish) 3 bedroom home with my two boys, who are now "his" too.  I co-parent with both of their fathers 50/50 and it's hard but we make the best of it. 

I'm currently living with severe depression and I'm starting this blog to document my way out of it and into a new, healther, happier life along with some curse words, love & family moments.
