Blog Everyday in May {The Story of My Life} Day 1

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).

  1. Visiting from the Blog Everyday in May challenge – nice to meet you! And I hear you on the wish for somewhere warm once grad school is done… we moved from UT to TX for grad school, and I was so excited to get back to warm weather!

    • It’s definitely been a different kind of cold this past winter. Mountain snow and wind is something I wasn’t used to and it pretty much snowed at least once a week. Florida sounds nice 🙂

    • Thank you so much. You are too sweet!
      Both my husband and I are the youngest (he’s the youngest of 4 boys and I’m the youngest of 3 girls) so we had a ton of nieces and nephews. We both knew we wanted children and I think even on our wedding day and a little time after that, we still wanted to wait a while. We got married 4/28/07 and I remember it being late June/early July when we decided to give it a go and see what happens.

    • I did. I remember in high school wanting to move out of state to go to school. When it came to leaving the house I chickened out and decided to stay home and commute. One of my biggest regrets – totally wish I went away and had the experience.
