It's official, Rosalie and Alice have taken over her life. Telling her what to wear, what to do, where to go. Showing up uninvited to pressure her into giving details about her personal business. Another story with Bella having no backbone and allowing others to dictate her life.

I personally think that the Jessica situation needs to be resolved permanently. Death would be suitable. As for him proposing, he is an idiot to even consider it, and she would be a fool to accept. She should have never went back to his house to begin with. She should have went to Alice's, or even Esme and Carlisle's for that matter. Their track record speaks for itself.

Wow - I saw someone recommend this on one of my FB pages I'm on, and I took all darn day to read it. Nothing got done at the house today because of you, but...that's okay. It was a great story. Hard to see Esme die, and Edward really was a shit for parts of the story, but - hey. That's life.

I love this story, but I hated that Edward almost cheated. The way the girls attitude was so smug. I will admit I kicked my husband to the curb for that reason, so I hate that part of the story line. Bella in this story although she had her faults. Had a hardest time throughout this story, I felt. Thank you for sharing it with us.

I just found your story and I'm loving it !!!!
I know your story is finished but I would like to point out that second graders are seven years old. Six-year-olds are general it first-graders ---- unless you are writing in the story that she is advanced and has already skipped a grade which would work to. ;). Fix it if you like - or keep it the same - it's your story. I'm still going to finish the like it ;)

Ok I've read the whole story and have not reviewed. First I want to thank you for the story which I liked very much. Your Edward was a little dense sometime but he found the right path in the end. I'm glad Bella finally got her HEA I bet it's even sweeter sine she really fought for it. 😃

This was such a wonderful story.. I ran the gammut of laughter to tears. Not many authors have your talent. Thank you for sharing this awesome story! I thoroughly loved every chapter.
Date: 05 Nov 2012 8:12 PM Title: Chapter 1 - Moving Day
I just finished this story and had to review. I absolutely loved it. I am originally from STL and hearing you speak of so many landmarks made me homesick. Not only was it an endearing story but also very thoughtfully written. Thank you for sharing your gift for us to enjoy! I am more than a little curious, tho... Are you a MO girl or was it all from research?

wow. this is hands down one of the best stories ive read in a while. i will admit i did cry a few times while reading this. one of the things i found so very sweet was when carlie was upset at the prospect of a new baby and papa c called her grandpas girl. i recently lost my grandfather about a month ago and thats what he use to call me. had a few happy tears. thank you for writing such an amazing story. it is most certainly one of my all time favorites and i cant wait to read more of your stories.

THAT BITCH SHE MADE OUR BELLA CRY, WELL SHE MADE A FOOL OF HERSELF BECAUSE EDWARD LOVES BELLA AND NOT HER. I ONLY HOPE BELLA DOESN'T HOLD WHAT CARMEN SAID AGENSET EDWARD, EDWARD SHOULD HAVE KNOWN BELLA WAS RIGHT IF HE DID THEY WOULDN'T HAVE GONE FOR DRINKS MAYBE BUT GOING WAS ONLY GOOD SO EDWARD WOULD LEARN THE TRUTH ABOUT WHY SHE CAME AROUND IN THE FIRST PLACE.

DAMN THAT JACOB HAS BALL SHOWING UP AGAIN AT BELLA'S PLACE I'M THINKING EDWARD WILL TRY TO GET BELLA TO MOVE IN WITH HIM NOW SO SHE WILL BE SAFE FROM JACOB.

OMG I'M SHOCKED I WOULD HAVE NEVER GUESS YOUR EDWARD WAS INTO THIS KIND OF SEX DON'T GET ME WRONG I LIKE READING STORY'S LIKE THIS BUT I DIDN'T KNOW UNTIL JUST NOW.
Date: 10 Jul 2012 8:32 AM Title: Chapter 5 - Nannygate (Pt. 2)
BELLA'S ALREADY DOING THINGS A MOTHER WOULD DO FOR HER DAUGHTER I THINK SHE LOVES CARLIE AND EDWARD BUT MAYBE SHE DOESN'T KNOW IT YET. IT'S A GREAT STORY. OH AND I LOVED THE BLOW JOB I'M SURE SO DID EDWARD. LOL

GOD I LOVE YOUR STORY AND THE LONG CHAPTERS THEY ARE GREAT THERE ARE SOME OUT THERE THAT THEY CALL CHAPTERS AND THEY ARE ONLY JUST 5 OR 6 LINES IT MAKES ME LAUGH IF THEY WENT TO SCHOOL THEY WOULD KNOW THATS NO CHAPTER.

AND THERE DAUGHTER
Date: 24 Mar 2012 7:00 PM Title: Chapter 23 - Pain
Edward and Bella have both no backbone. Carlie is only a poor excuse. As long they don't have sex in front of Carlie, Jessica's accusations are only hot air. There are adoption agencies which have married BDSM-lifestylers as adoptiv parents.
Date: 24 Mar 2012 12:33 PM Title: Chapter 19 - Have Yourlelf a Merry Little Break Down
Oh, please, Bella is a little bit too overdramatic.Yes, Edward's choice of words was wrong when he blamed himself but sweet Bella shouldn't had have run away immediately. This is a no go in a seriuos relationship.
Date: 15 Mar 2012 12:38 AM Title: Chapter 25 - Beginning to Heal
i liked your story untill the bella getting ran over part. from what i've read so far it seems that bella has forgiven edward to fast. i mean come on she was the only one who was ready to sacrifice everything for their love. if it were me i dont think i could forgive someone who did this to me. it sucks that bella is always the one to get screwed over.

I am a 'review after reading all' type of reader most complete stories. I have been reading 'Trip' and I don't know if I've reviewed or not but I am loving it just so you know. I did have a review started on the chp that Bella returned home after her accident but hit a button and lost it and well you cleared up my nagging question about her bitterness in the next few chps so I'm glad it didn't go through. HA. I absolutely love your talent as a writer. You have a very good mind when it comes to concept and storyline. I wish I could write just an inkling of the what I call 'meat' of the story like you. I can come up with many scenerios and what I would like to happen but can't come up with the in between. Know? Anywho, this story was awesome! I hated Esme's last chp. That was hard. And, oh them only having one child was sad as well. I thought maybe they'd adopt or something. It was such a great story and I cried a little at the end not because of ending but because it WAS ending! :( I can't wait now to start on one of your other complete ones like the honeymoon one. That sounds fun!! You have wrote your way onto my fav authors list that's for sure! I'm sorry about the long review and talking like I've known you my whole life but your pm was disabled so I thought I would just ramble now. Again, sorry about that! Thanks for sharing with us!
Hugs, and squeezes, Stephanie

wow i have read all 38 chapters and have read each of your stories. always impressed and always enjoy what you write. esme passing was rough and carlisle having to deal without her was heartbreaking. edward screwing up once again and the lack of communication since it does take 2 to not paticpate in a marriage these guys. 19 years wow. 2 kids and a great family. man oh man that was a hard pill to swallow. but it seems they have made it through once again and hopefully are able to pull it off till the end. now they are grandparents. it was a hell of a story and i truly enjoyed it. thank you for writing i loved it all
Date: 22 Aug 2011 5:56 AM Title: Chapter 31 - The Great Car Caper
wow i am thrilled jack is here but sorry for their loss of more kids. but if orse comes to worse than can always adopt. there are other kids out there that would be luckt to be part of this family. i wonder what em will do when he finds out about his car
Date: 21 Aug 2011 5:56 PM Title: Chapter 29 - Party In The USA! (Come on, I had to!)
man i loved their talk and I am glad they finally had it. they are meant for each other. i forgot to mention it was totally hawt of bella going down on her man and taking him from behind. it is great that they can expermiment and enjoy their lives and even more so now that she knows it is as husband and wife and on equal terms. love it
Date: 21 Aug 2011 4:26 PM Title: Chapter 27 - Moving...Up and On
i love them changes houses. great idea. perfect for both couples.
i love that em and rose finally got married.
bella said yes and now a wedding is being plannned and the wedding dress has been found. it seems all is going well.
i love the music and how gifted carlie is.
Date: 21 Aug 2011 3:54 PM Title: Chapter 26 - The Next Phase
man when edward fucks up he does it big. the hole just swallowed him
i wish he would have listen to bella. well i am glad she left her notes to him i am sure that got through to him much better and faster.
Date: 21 Aug 2011 6:23 AM Title: Chapter 25 - Beginning to Heal
i am thrilled theya re talking and in counseling all of them.i am almost thinking a little presumptious of edward to ask bella to marry him when they are not even sleeping together yet. wow i need to keep reading to see what happens next
Date: 20 Aug 2011 3:02 PM Title: Chapter 23 - Pain
wow i would say you should be hiding. my goodness heartbreak. i am not sure i agree with how edward handled that. i know your kids should come first but at what cost. i am a single mom of 3 who hasn't dated for 17 years to raise my kids. i almost think at some point thta was a mistake for them. i guess you can go around and around at how a parent should act. the children should come first but i almost think they could of handled this situation differently. i am shocked, wow
Date: 20 Aug 2011 4:22 AM Title: Chapter 22 - Commitment and Commitment Issues
i love the proposal. it was perfect. it is the three of them and it was great to involve carlie in it. make her feel part of the relationship, the family. bella and edward had a hell of a night.
Date: 19 Aug 2011 4:07 AM Title: Chapter 29 - Party In The USA! (Come on, I had to!)
I started reading he story last night and am really enjoying it.
Just a query - why fly all the wrong around the world to get to Bora Bora and then back to Australia to return to Washington?
There are direct flights.

Date: 14 Mar 2011 7:20 PM Title: Chapter 38 - Epilogue: Blessings
Just WOW!! I didnt review enough, I am sorry. But I just enjoyed this story... It was one of the stories that had real life moments and still have a HEA. Oh Esme, I am glad that if it had to happen it was toward the end. I probably won't have been able to go on with Esme gone and Carlisle so lonely. And then Edward almost losing Bella AGAIN... the drama. LOVED IT, LOVED IT, LOVED IT! Look forward to more stories from you... I will do better in the review department..;-)
Date: 13 Mar 2011 4:01 AM Title: Chapter 38 - Epilogue: Blessings
OMG Fabulous story! I truly loved it though i may have wanted to throttle you at several points along the way. But one major question is what happened with JJ's (and was that his full name or like nickname like Carlie was short for Carlina nd Jack for John Anthony?) heart surgery, i mean from the story i gather he's okay but any other time something was mention everything was divulged or atleast mentioned in passing, but all that happened was you mentioned it would happen then nothing for years about him at all. I mean i get that this is Bella and Edwards story but even Rose, Emmett, Carlisle, and Esme's problems were cleared. But thats mainly my curiousity. I really loved that Carlie and Will were childhood sweethearts and waited for eachother- it was fabulous that it wasnt edward and Bella bc main character cliche and all but subtely thrown in there. Just thank you for your commitment to the story and being so through. I also loved your writing style. Just a great freaking job!! Hope to see many more stories from you :)
Date: 10 Mar 2011 11:31 AM Title: Chapter 38 - Epilogue: Blessings
That was a good ending. I am glad that Bella realized she was part of the problem in the separation. Edward was not ready for the empty nest, but at least he gets a grandchild to spoil. He was such a great father and he will be an amazing grampa.
Date: 10 Mar 2011 12:37 AM Title: Chapter 38 - Epilogue: Blessings
Shit you Rock I loved this story, of course I am going back and going to re-read it, I know there are chapters that I did not post a review on so I will try and cover those chapters and YES, I will read "Trip of a Lifetime"
Once more, this was a very well done story, loved it!!!
Later BB Kathy xoxoxoxoxo
