Hello there and Welcome to my imperfect world. Starting over with a new and fresh blog is akin to moving into your first place, when you have nothing but a bean bag chair a television (no cable) and a giant wooden spool for a makeshift coffee table/ dining table!! But over time I am sure it will become more “homey”.
My blog will probably seem very random to most. I will be posting about all sorts of things. Not just things that interest me, but things I find on the interwebs that stir up a reason to comment or rant about. I hope to make you laugh, think, or maybe even cry at times. Occasionally we all need a good cry, right?
Let’s see what can I tell you about me?
I am 48 years old, married (for the second time) to my best friend on this big blue rock! We have 3 children ages 21, 14 and 11 and we have been married coming up on 3 years in October!! How does that work you ask? Well I had 3 kids and he has no biological children but he has been more of a dad to them than their own. We also have a beautiful grand daughter who is almost 9 months old!! We love her and I am sure you will see plenty of photos of all of them!
I am currently a stay at home mom, and my husband is a semi- retired Pharmacist. (He still does some relief work for Costco). I am sure you will notice in pictures and things that he is a bit older than I am (19 years) to be exact, but we have this connection that is just off the charts amazing and I just can’t imagine life without him in it! He is my joy, my light, and my rock!!
We live in a small Amish town in Iowa and we love it here. I am originally from Boston, Massachusetts and the hubs is originally from Lincoln, Illinois! But, we find life here heavenly and I believe that we would enjoy living anywhere as long as we are together!! (I know kinda sappy right? but totally true).
I am a huge hockey fan, my favorite team is the Boston Bruins! I enjoy watching Football as well. (Go Patriots) My interests and hobbies vary, I also enjoy quilting, crocheting, cooking, swimming, and spending time with friends and family. I love to be crafty and creative when I can. I also really enjoy planning parties. We used to throw one big party a year between Thanksgiving and Christmas and many of our friends show up. Some we only get to see that one time each year. I planned our entire wedding and I got many compliments on it from our guests! I have also been trying to learn to play guitar, my hubby bought me a guitar 2 years ago for my birthday and I just can never seem to find the time to teach myself. My husband and I both like motorcycles and we both own Harley’s, (It was on my bucket list and he bought me one for Valentines day this year (2015). *I have a trike and I haven’t learned to drive it yet, but I will this Spring (2015).*
Life is too short to not try things that interest me. Even if sometimes I get nervous and anxious about it. I have created a bucket list and I cross things off as I go along, and even add some to it occasionally.
Again, Welcome to my crazy, imperfect world. Grab a beverage and get comfy, I hope you come back often and please comment often as well, but keep it classy please.
