Life is good.
I am so ridiculously happy these days I don't even know what to do with myself. I'm finally embracing who I am, and allowing myself to live for me, not for anyone else. I'm not obeying what other people expect of me, or live my life according to someone else's rules.
I have definitely changed a lot this year. A lot of people have been calling this my "coming of age" year. I would have to agree. I am a completely different person than I was at this time last year. Now, I'll be completely honest. Past Loretta would probably be appalled at who I am these days; who I have become and how drastically my values have changed. But I must say: I am so happy with myself. I am finally at a place where I can say that I am comfortable with who I am and how I handle things that occur in my life.
Things with Steven are amazing. We have been going strong now for 3 1/2 months! And I can honestly say without any sort of a doubt: I love this boy. He is so incredible. I have never felt like this about anyone, and I feel so lucky to call him mine; to have him in my life.
He's going to be spending Thanksgiving and the Thanksgiving weekend with my family! I am so excited I can't even handle it. He's finally going to get to meet a bunch of people from home, and some of my extended family. This is the first boy who I have ever really introduced to my family, so here's hoping it goes well! I'm sure they'll love him as much as I do. He's a charmer, so he'll be fine. :)
I am so loving my life! AHH! I can't even form coherent thought to explain what it is, but I am just in love with my boy and in love with life.
Life is good.
