Inspired by Miranda Lambert... The House that Built Me

I was Born in Snellville Georgia and that is where I lived in a two story house for the first 16 years of my life.

My life was pretty storybook until I was about 5, or so it seemed to me. A few bumps a long the way - my sister and I managed to cope and survive clinging on to one and other. We spent most of our time outside.

16 came and I moved - I did the best I could! I was finding myself and I wanted better for myself.

The house I grew up in truly changed me-it built me into a better person.

Now, I am married to a wonderful man, have two adorable kids. I am enjoying life more than ever. I am almost grateful for some of the hardship I went through growing up because on some level I can relate to other people. It made me strong, and it showed me what I really want out of life.

Jon and I are celebrating our 3rd Anniversary this week! YAY! we have been together 5 years now. Wow time fly's when you're having fun. When I was working at Lowes Home Improvement I had my nose to the grindstone, I was working and going to school. I really was not interested in finding someone to date. God had another plan for me. Jon and I met for coffee at Borders one day after work and we started dating after that. Now we have a beautiful family and finally I will be completing school this year. I have to laugh at things sometimes - because I had all of this planned out and everytime I went back to school - we had a baby on the way. Just when you think that you are in control of your life, God has a funny was of letting you know - he is the Creator- and he is always in control.
