Born in Texas, cementing my lifelong love of yellow roses. Raised in Kansas, yes, like Dorothy. Bitten by the travel bug at 3 with my first transatlantic trip to visit grandma.
Irish dance was my life, but I made time for sports too.
Running, basketball, field hockey, volleyball, I tried them all, but running was my best.
Traveled to the Emerald City (well, just south) for college. Francais & Art History were my bag. Made lifelong friends and learned lifelong lessons which can’t be found in books.
Post graduation frantic job search led to amazing opportunity at an art museum and concurrently met my now husband. Epic first date. Enormously awkward first kiss; we were clearly meant to be.
Throw in a puppy, an engagement, a deployment, a baby, a homecoming, and our first year living together as a family.
Bam- Hubs’ ETS. New direction in life. Headed to the Mitten where hubs’ went back to school. Family adventures in our new (for me) home. Found a fun part time job at a museum followed by an AMAZING job at a library. New calling? Being storytime maven & crafting queen of the library lets me use my creative juices. Gbear diagnosed with CP and started school. The age of three, I finally hear him say mama. Life affirming. Trying to be the best mama I can. Finding new life goals & looking to the future. Master’s Degree? Big changes coming my way before 2013 is over. Stick around & see.
