I am so excited to be taking part in Jenni from Story of my Life’s Blog Everyday in May Challenge. For a very long time I have been wanting to get back into the groove of blogging and I think this is a great way for to get in the habit and to get me thinking about posts in the future.
- I was born in 1982 in the state of Maryland. This would mean that I am a fan of all things Maryland (steamed crabs, Maryland seafood, the Chesapeake Bay, Annapolis, etc). I am the youngest of 3 girls.
- I spent the first 10 years of my life, living in Baltimore County before moving to the Eastern Shore (right on the Chesapeake Bay). After college and leaving the nest, I have called Annapolis my home.
- I attended University of Maryland and have a degree in Business. Looking back I would have done things differently (like a total different degree and would have lived on campus). I have already decided that my two boys WILL go away to school and have that experience.
- Conversely, my experience in college led me to a job when I was a few months shy of graduating, where I met my husband. I was not one for dating in the workplace and given his position in the company (OWNER) I didn’t feel it was appropriate (or professional) to stay and found employment elsewhere – it was the best decision.
- Married in April 2007, in my favorite town – Annapolis
- We originally planned to have children a year later, but then changed our minds (this is what we do a lot) and found out we were expecting by September 2007.
- Had my first child in May 2008, 2nd child in April 2010. It’s funny that I had 2 boys, especially growing up in a household of girls. I never shared a bathroom with my parents and for the first time in my life, I’m getting the experience of living with men (they are kinda gross 🙂 )
- Although our home is still in Maryland, we are currently living in Blacksburg, VA while my husband is fulfilling a dream of earning his PhD at Virginia Tech. We hope to move back to Maryland when he’s finished in August 2014, but it’s quite possible that this could move us somewhere else too (hopefully somewhere warm).
