Family of My Dreams

When I tell you I have the family of my dreams, I'm not exaggerating. I dreamed of this little (brown) Brooklyn family of mine, well before meeting Dre, before I even felt I was ready to have a husband and kids. I had a picture of a husband, wife and two kids (boy & girl) at the beach on my vision board back in 2008. I was living in Chicago at the time, a had a broke, long-distance boyfriend who had no intentions of marriage or kids. I even remember saying to my best friend that I didn't know how I was gonna have these brown babies in my vision board picture with a half Italian boyfriend. LOL.

Fast-forward to meeting Dre (we met in a club, let me know in the comments if you'd like to hear that story!), dating for 8 months, breaking up for 8, and finally back getting together in March of 2011 to having a baby 2.5 years later - you may be wondering what all this has to do with manifestation. Well, during those 8 long months, when Dre and I were broken up, he was constantly on my mind. I didn't tell him until MUCH later, but I would visualize our hilltop (with oceanview) wedding (and if you've seen my wedding pictures... ), I named our first child (a boy named Christian, because I loved the name and thought it would go well with Chloe), and him, doing what he loved, working in Marketing with Men's fashion brands. So in January of 2013, when I found out I was pregnant on the morning of my wedding dress shopping appointment, I was sure I was having a son (who would be named Christian), because I had not only visualized it, but I had believed it was as real as the job I went to every day.

When Christian was just under 2 years old, I saw the cutest picture of a little boy and his baby sister. I saved that photo to my phone and said to myself it was exactly what I wanted. The little boy looked so happy and proud to be taking a picture with his baby sister and I remember feeling a little tear forming as I imagined that being Christian and his sister.

So yes, the family of my dreams. Now I need to work on manifesting my career goals, and I'll be all set!

And now, more photos of my kids because I took a lot of good ones and I can't possibly post them all on Instagram. LOL
