Where I'm From

I have this itch. Maybe it's not an itch.. maybe it's more of a craving or a drive... I want to get back blogging. Routinely. Like in my last post where I wrote about craving routine. And here I am today... wanting to get to regular blogging.

Today I stumbled upon a blog party happening. Jenni over at Story of My Life came up with Blogtember and I'm deciding to join. It'll give me prompts to write about and just a reason to log on everyday and get creative with things. Head on over here if you want to join the Blogtember party!

The first prompt is to write about where or what you are from, the people, places, and or factors that have shaped your life...
I was born and raised in Connecticut. My parents were divorced when I was a year and a half old. I don't really remember them together at all. It was just the way it's been. I lived with my mom and we moved around a little bit until she met my stepdad when I was 5. They were married when I was 8 and I'm pretty sure, even though at the time I was not happy about my mom remarrying, it was one of the best things that could have happened to me. I was an only child until I was 12 years old, when my baby brother was born. I used to hate that my family was "split" and I used to think I was the only one who experienced divorce, but to be honest, it's made me learn a lot of lessons and taught me to be stronger than I sometimes realize. It's also taught me my beliefs on life, love, marriage and family. Growing up where I did helped me establish my morals and taught me to stand my ground when it comes to my convictions. I'm so grateful for my upbringing because it's made me me. 


  1. and as a little girl growing up in CT, you helped shaped other people's lives who learned from everything you and your mom were going through!
