I come from a large family, I'm #6 of 7 kids. Our ages span 20+ years. I had a great childhood which I remember mostly with my younger brother Jon (we're 3 years apart). My other siblings are 10+ yrs older than me and I don't remember much about us growing up together. I was quite the rebellious teenager (who wasn't, right?).
I married right out of high school (see-rebellious)....at the ripe age of twenty....yes, 20! I thought he was "the one". We were married for 12+ years and had three beautiful children. As I got older, I realized....well....there were things that I would not put up with or expose my children to. I finally got the balls to leave and did just that. It was not pretty.
In the meantime, I met a guy named Dennis that was similarly in a bad relationship. Initially that's what we had in common. Over time, we developed a friendship. I thought he was pretty awesome. I was trying to think of friends of mine that I could set him up with because he was a catch, then one day it clicked....why not me?
There's a bunch of stuff I could fill in here about dating/relationship/divorce/kids/etc and I might at some point, but today I'm just adding the "page" :-)
Fast-forward to today...I am happily, happily, happily married to an amazing man. In 2012 we added to our family -- another boy of course. Today I commute to Dallas to my full time job of 20+ years, juggle the schedules of four boys, do my best to manage our household, and try REALLY hard to be a good wife!
My life is pretty awesome and every day I am thankful!
