- Wedding: May 2014
Ok so I LOVE MY FAMILY!!! Although we always don’t get along at times they mean the world to me. & nothing more makes me happy that they love my FH and are so happy for us. And to add icing on the cake I AM IN LOVE WITH MY FILs !!!! Patty & Joc (FH parents) are the best. I’m so blessed I could cry sometimes. I see all these horror stories of FMIL and I’m thinking omg Patty would never do or say that. My FILs are so laid back and fun and outgoing. They only want what’s best for their son. I tell my FH all the time I want a marriage just like my grandparents and FILs. When me and my FH first started dating I was worried that our families not getting along. We had our son, Landon, out of wedlock and pretty early in our relationship. Plus we are completely opposite on every aspect. My family is Black, liberal, southern, democrats. My FH family is white, northern, conservative republicans. BUT WE GET ALONG GREAT & most importantly everyone is in love with Landon and is so supportive of everything we do.
My FH told me once that his grandma (whose like 90 something.) told him to bring home a Christian, white, republican woman. And we joke all the time that I’m 1 out of 3. This is pretty damn good in baseball HAHAH. This was way before he ever met me. I’ve met her and she’s lovely and really liked me. She kept telling me I was beautiful J My mom has dated white guys and my uncle is married to my aunt who is also white and they have two gorgeous girls so “race” isn’t a big deal. Plus I’ve really only dated white guys so they kind of figured I marry one. The funny thing is the only thing that our families openly disagree on is SPORTS TEAMS. My family bleeds blue .KENTUCKY WILDCATS ALL THE WAY! My FH family is from Ohio so they like the Buckeyes. So during NCAA basketball tournament it gets a little heated. But all in good fun. I tell my family I will fit right into the Campbell’s because they love to drink. (My family not so much. & I drink like a fish)
Anyway this was just a positive rant I should say. I really am blessed and wanted to share with you other bees about my amazing growing family
