First and foremost, I’m a mom. I have three beautiful children, Chelsea, Cooper and Camille. They are my whole world. They drive me crazy and melt my heart all at the same time.
I am married to my husband who I have known since we were two years old. We didn’t start dating though until I was a 25 year old single mom. He really knows how to work the timing.
I have an amazing family–a mom and dad who have been happily married for over 30 years, a brother who is married to an amazing woman and has a beautiful daughter who made me an aunt. I (luckily) have all four grandparents still alive, and they are absolutely perfect. I have two aunts, an uncle and five girl cousins. I have lots of other extended family as well. Family is the most important thing to me and that is something I hope to instill in my children.
I love to eat and shop. If you like to do these things–we will be best friends.
I believe Chick-fil-a has all the menu items to be the only thing I ever eat for the rest of my life. I also believe if you can’t find it at Target or Amazon, it probably doesn’t exist. I may or may not have a problem with buying clothes (for my kids and myself).
I love to take pictures and edit them. People will ask me to send them a picture right after I take it, and I’m like, “Uh yeah, ok. I have to edit it first!” (duh). Lightroom presets have become my best friend.
I love the beauty industry. I love to get my nails and hair done and anything else to pamper myself. I went to cosmetology school way back in the day, so it has always been a passion of mine. Even though I didn’t pursue it as a career, I will always be passionate about it.
I love organization. Yes, you read that right. I am that weird. I have just a little OCD in me (seriously, it’s been diagnosed), and I love nothing more than a good organizational system. Keeping things in order is an obsession of mine.
I’m one of those people who could never decide what I want to be when I grow up. Some ideas I’ve had: teacher, nurse, photographer, cosmetologist–just to name a few. It’s not that I’m not good at anything, it’s that I’m not GREAT at anything. I’m good at a lot of things–but not GREAT. “Jack of all trades, master of none.” I have such an extensive background of jobs: social media manager, embroiderer, human resources manager, hair stylist, nail tech, customer service representative, 5th grade teacher, manager of a gymnastics facility, tech at a pharmacy, tanning consultant, server, the list goes on and on.
I feel like i have never found “my thing” and I think that’s because I’m not built for the traditional 9-5 career. I like so many different things. I am interested in so many different aspects of life. And I’m not sorry for that. I love all the experiences I’ve had. I love that I can say, “Oh yeah I’ve done that before,” to just about any job. It gives me so much life experience that some people don’t have working the same job for 30 years (don’t get me wrong, I admire the people who can work the same job for 30 years. That dedication is commendable). But I have learned that it is not for everyone. And it’s not for me. And I’m ok with that.
I am weird. I am unique. I am me. And there’s no one else in the world just like me.
