My Life in 250 word or Less (Definitely NOT Less)

My best friend’s daughter, who is an AWESOME blogger, joined a link-up, Blog every day in May.  I read her post yesterday and the May 1 post topic was to tell about your life in 250 words or less.  I agree with T,  250 words or less sure keeps our thoughts on what we consider the most important highlights of our life.  I wanted to join in, although behind already by two days, so I thought I would give it a try for the first day anyway.  I am not sure how well I will keep up with each and every post for the month, or that I even want to, as you know life has kept my blogging quite sporadic lately. I just thought I would give this the best try I can, without any promises.   Anyway,  here is a new post and a link-up.  Thanks T for sharing this on your blog.


Day 1, Wednesday: The story of your life in 250 words or less (or one paragraph… no one will be counting your words… probably.)                                                                      

Wow this was a huge undertaking for someone that has lived, probably, more than half of her life. Here it goes… My Life (So Far) As I Know It (250 words or less)  I can assure you it is NOT less!!


I was born November 30, 1970 in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida to a single mother from Pittsburgh, PA.  A little over a year later she got married. Soon after, her husband made one of the best decisions ever made for my life, and adopted me. I gained three siblings and a Dad all in one day. Some of my best memories were the years after while living in FL.  In 1980 a job transfer for my Dad moved us to a small town in NC where I’ve lived since.  I attended Elementary, MS, HS and some community college. During HS my first job was at a convenience store my parents owned and then on to the company my Dad started.  I had an over three year relationship in high school that I ended when I was 20.  In May 1991 I met a, perfect,  great-looking, dark-haired, blue-eyed, hard- working, motorcycle racing, guy.  He had also just ended a long relationship and  wasn’t  looking for anything serious.  Two months later were engaged and May 1992 we were married. So much for not wanting anything serious!  My husband started working at my Dad’s company soon after and is now VP/General Manager. We started our family in 1994 and now have a daughter and three sons who are 18, 14, 8, and 5.  I became a SAHM in 2001.  My family is my life and this blog is about my love for it!
