250 words

Hi. {not that I can promise to blog every day in may or anything, but here goes an attempt...}

After 9 {10} months of being preggo, my mama had me in Columbia, SC, at Baptist Hospital, 1237 in the afternoon, on October 3, 1981..

My mom was 20, my dad was 27, I was their first, and my brother followed 4 years later.

Lived in Irmo, SC for my entire teenage life - same house until my Sr year of high school, then my parents moved 5.5 miles away and are still there to this day.

Both of my parents worked. Austin and I went to La Petite Academy until elementary school started.

Graduated high school in 1999. That is when the Prince song, "party like it's 1999" made sense.

Attempted a semester at USC - met a boy and moved away to TN instead.

Got married at 20, divorced at 22.

Moved home, grew up a little more.

Roger. 2006.

Head over HEELS, i tell you.
That is how it started out.
It was his eyes.

Oops. Pregnant.
Hailee Elizabeth Venne 03/31/2009.
Defining moment in my life.
My world.
My little heart beat.
My everything.
She stole the show.

{nontraditional - most definitely NOT what I was taught - culmination of a lot of things and circumstances}

God intervened.
Changed Roger's life - full circle.
Changed my life - now living for the "right" reasons.
married roger 2010.

2 job interviews today, peer interview/job shadow Saturday.

now, it is time to give back to everyone who gave so much to get me to where I am today.

from the bottom of my heart.
