a little more about me

I was asked to write a little blurb about my life and family {for my alma mater} since graduation, 12 years ago. Thought I’d share it here so you can get to know a little more about me too :) Here ya go…

When asked where I went to school, I usually respond “Oh, just a small liberal arts college in California.” I get so excited when I find someone here in the South who has actually heard of it! It’s like a little reminder I haven’t totally morphed into a southerner…yet.

College was my launching pad into adulthood (though I’m still waiting to really grown up…ha!). It was also a really great place to make some awesome memories-ribbon dancing (more on that later), swing dancing, and beach days…how I miss those!!! The friendships and experiences are probably what I cherish most from those four years.

After graduation Hayden and I got married and moved to Texas. He became a med student and a daddy in the same week (I do not recommend doing it that way). My life became diapers, goldfish crackers, and sippy cups. Two moves and three more babies later, here we are.

Today I am still a stay-at-home mom. Hayden is in his last year of training in Alabama while the kids and I are still in Tennessee (I do not recommend this either). We will all be together when he is finally done – woot woot! – and the kids are out of school next summer.

So to fill my evenings while we are apart, you can find me making art in my basement or sharing way too much, here on the interwebs.

Our journey has not been easy, but I wouldn’t change it for anything.

Years ago, I accepted the reality that I probably will never live on the west coast again. But it’s taken a while to get used to the fact that I’ll be living in Alabama. I’m slowly coming around. I guess all that’s left is having to decide if it’ll be War Eagle or Roll Tide for me.

So yes, this is my life. And I love it . . . most of the time.

{and someone please remind me never to take a picture from that angle again… yikes!}
