Hello!?! Anybody there?

I've always wanted to start a blog about my everyday adventures, personally and professionally. Believe me, I am not one to boast about myself, but I have a lot that I feel is unique, and not so unique that I'd like to share. With who? I'm not sure. For what reason? Maybe only to quiet my own mind, but if someone happens to see this and can relate, even better!


I grew up in a small town in Colorado, and I am the proud daughter of a super-smart electronic engineer (mechanic and classic rock connoisseur in his off time) best dad ever, and of my mom, who has more mechanical ability than I have ever seen but is intellectually disabled (somewhere around a 5th-grade level). These two people are primarily the reason I am who I am.


My dad, who has now been promoted to a guardian angel of many, taught me the meaning of hard work, humor, and taking care of others; he taught me that there is much more reward in giving than receiving, and most of the time the giving didn't mean that you provided financial support or material things, it meant that you provided a listening ear, a smile, or to make a fool of your self to make someone laugh.


My mom shows me every day that it doesn't take book knowledge to show strength, courage, or determination. She also is living proof that it is your soul that people attach to. She has more friends than I can count and more of a social life than I do!


I was absolutely blessed to find the love of my life 22 years ago as of the 24th! We have a beautiful daughter who is 12 (13 in just a few short months), four dogs, and two cats --more about that later. I work as an HR Manager (I bet you wouldn't have guessed that from the title). I am also a Jeep girl who loves the outdoors, and I am a bit of a mixed bag. I always say I am half mud and half lace. You might find me working on a car, fixing the dishwasher, mowing the lawn, getting my nails done, or sitting in a business meeting in a boring black business suit (no worries, I always wear bright accessories to make it pop). Hey, it keeps life interesting!


Ahhhh, writing again feels good. Therapeutic, even if nobody is listening. If you are listening, AWESOME! I hope to gain some followers and friends. What's your unique story? I'd love to hear it!
