I ended up with nine ladies at my Passion Party, which is awesome! My strawberry cake was actually a big hit and the ladies brought wine, my (soon to be) sister-in-law brought her amazing espresso cookies! We were all very comfortable around each other and shared stories and had an all around good time.
Three of the ladies stuck around to hang with me after the party and then it came to just three of us, one of which being my (soon to be) sister-in-law, Holly. I can honestly say that I am so thankful for her! My Husband and I have had to deal with far too much drama from his side of the family lately and it truly hurts to feel so distant with them, especially because we’ve always been so close. Every time she and I get together she talks to me about it and makes me feel a lot less alone. I don’t say anything to Husband about it because I don’t want to ruffle his feathers when it comes to his other brother. Last night Holly told me that she feels like it’s unfair and that while she likes not being involved she can totally see where we’re coming from. She also gave me some insight on the things going on when we can’t be there to witness them and it really put me at ease. We talked about the Hasty boys, and if only you guys knew, our husband’s and their father are like a different species. They are unlike any man I’ve ever dated! They are so difficult to crack, so hard to understand and yet they’re the most straight forward and sentimental people I’ve ever met. It makes things both harder and easier. She and I laugh at how similar they are and we’re grateful. Her best friend was there with us and hearing her talk about her relationship and family drama made me understand that we’re all sort of in the same boat.
I feel more comfortable because I know that she knows where I’m coming from and I feel like if the situation ever called for it, she’d be there for me and have my back, especially in times when I feel like I’m being backed into a corner.
This has been a very sentimental post.
