about

you meet him, this guy. he changes your whole world, makes it worth living, makes you believe in soulmates and true love and everything you thought was lost in this world. nothing could be more perfect.

except.

except that he comes with baggage. kids, great kids, and an ex. an ex who is an entire set of luggage unto herself.

everything about your life is now about turning that except into accept. because you can’t accept a life without him, which means you have to figure out how to accept his life. all of it.

this is my journey.

    I admire you… you are stronger than me. I am failing miserably at this (pre) step mom life. 😦

  • Lizzie, I understand where you are coming from all too well! It’s quite a journey that we are on, but one I am happy to see is becoming less “shameful.” So nice to read your story over at CafeSmom today – I look forward to keeping up with Except That!
