OK, how am I supposed to get serious here and tell you all about myself, when my dog is sleeping on the floor behind me, and she is snoring like a truck driver?! She’s a total distraction to me, only because she is so dang cute. Her name is Molly, and she’s a fun, loving, energetic, silly, fat, white shih-tzu. She’s the one thing in my life right now that always manages to get me to smile in this crazy thing I call… My Life. And what is My Life? Well, I’m still figuring that out. Because every time I think I’m on a path to a specific point, I find another fork to follow and get lost once again. Right now (in 2012) I’m trying to navigate through this thing called Parenthood. I am married to an amazing man (Grant & I met in college). We have 4 great kids: a 15 year old daughter, Alicia, a 13 year old son, Nathan, and 10 year old twin boys, Connor & Derek. Needless to say, this has been an interesting path (13 years ago it took me OFF the path of my career in architecture). That was a tough decision, but an important one; and some days I sure miss that post-college career life I had, but my husband and I wouldn’t have it any other way. So now, here I am, adding another route… a blog. Why? Because there’s a part of me that I’ve brushed off long enough; I don’t know how I’ll find the time (with mom-hood, 2 part-time jobs, and a husband), so I’ll set my goal for something reasonable… I’m hoping for 2 (maybe 4!) per month for now, until I get settled and figure this all out. Thank you so much for checking out my blog; I’m very excited about this journey and where it will lead. See you next time!
