My life story...in 250 words or less

Welcome to the May Challenge.  I am excited.

Day 1: My life story in 250 words (or one paragraph) or less.  This is really hard.  How do I sum up my life in one paragraph....oh well, here goes.

I was born and partly raised in a small town in Oklahoma.  My parents divorced when I was 7.  I lived a few years off and on with my grandma.  Most of my fondest memories are with her.  I met my husband when I was a senior in high school (he was a sophomore in college).  We were married on the 4th of July when I was 19.  We moved to Houston after he graduated college.  We lived there for 11 months and 16 days.  One of the most traumatic experiences of my life happened while we were there.  But, I also became pregnant with my daughter during that time.  We moved back to Oklahoma to my husband's hometown.  We have lived here ever since.  We have a 13 year old daughter, who is wonderful.  We also have two dogs and a cat. I have a brother in the Army.  I also have a half-sister who is 13 years younger than me.  She is married to a Marine.  I have a step-sister who lives in Texas with her Army husband.  I have a step-brother who is in college at Oklahoma State.  Lastly, I have a step-sister who lives here in Oklahoma.  I have 8 nephews (my daughter is a bit of a princess). I have a great group of friends who I adore.  I am a professional photographer and a professional cake decorator.  I enjoy crafting, reading and sewing and baking.  I love life.

Ok...I think that is around 250.  If you want to see other's life stories, join me and other bloggers over at Story of My Life.



A little something extra and exciting!!  My sister (the one married to the Marine) is having her baby today.  I cannot wait to see pictures of my newest nephew.  I wish I could be in NC to be with her, but I am there in spirit.  Yay!!

    1. Thanks for stopping by. :) Getting together with my family can get a little crazy. We don't get together very often as a big group because they are spread out all over the country. I look forward to getting to know you more through the challenge. :)
