It has been too long since I have consistently blogged over here. When you "professionally" (I use this term loosely) blog at 2 places and free lance at 3 others, it seems the last thing you want to do is write for yourself.
Even though it is the easiest and most rewarding.
So I am going to attempt to blog every day in May. Just write and get back into doing what I loved.
May 1st - Your life story in 250 words.
I was born in Austin, Texas and by the time I was 18, I had lived in 22 different homes and attended 13 different schools. So the question I always get is, "Were your parents in the military?"
"No. They were gypsy - wannabes."
In all seriousness, all that moving made me who I am today. I am confident, outgoing, head-strong, and LOVE change. Had I not been forced to constantly make new friends, I would never have learned how to speak my mind in a room full of strangers. Had I not lived in 3 different states as a child, I never would have discovered my passion for travel. Had I not graduated high school in Nevada, I never would have met my husband.
I married my sweetheart when I was 21. We will celebrate 18 years this summer. We have 3 amazing children who are the light of our lives. Our days are filled with homework, soccer, traveling, bickering (they are pre-teen siblings after all) and struggling with what to cook for dinner......and I wouldn't change it for the world.
I worked full-time in the pharmaceutical industry for 13 years, working hard to climb up the corporate ladder, thinking I was in it forever. Then God made a BIG change in my life ~ I was laid off with 30,000 of my closest friends ~ and I was afforded the time to be a "SAHM" - something I thought I'd never be. And I love it. It has given me the time to raise my little man, volunteer at the kids' school, and start writing (remember, I "blog professionally").
I turn 40 in eight months. I am so very happy with my life and so very blessed to be able to say that. ANd though I have accomplished much in my first 40 - Great marriage, 3 kids, own my own business, been on a reality TV show (seriously), and have tons of amazing friends and family - I have even BIGGER goals for the next 40.
Hi - I'm a mom of 3 who loves to travel and discover new & fun things to do with my kiddos....and then I love to tell you all about it. I really like social media - some may say I'm addicted to it - so you may see a picture or post or link or more......
