The History of Me

The history of my life has been recorded for years in journals and, for the past 8 years, in blogs. Since my memory isn't always so keen, I like to write things down so I can remember the feelings I felt and the way things were.

I'm going to try and make my back history short and sweet since I'm sure you'll get snippets of it here or there when I write.

For a short timeline:
I graduated high school in 2006.
I was married in 2007.
I had my first child in 2008.
I had my second child in 2009.
I was diagnosed with infertility in 2011.
I went back to school in 2013.
My husband left in 2013.
Our divorce was final in 2014.
I became an ASU Sun Devil in 2015.

It was a crazy push into adulthood for me. Some of it was beautiful. Some of it was traumatic.

But now I am here. New blog. New year. New me.

My old blog had a lot of back history; posts from when my children were born, posts from our wedding anniversaries, posts from friendships that didn't pan out, etc.
I needed a new start. A fresh perspective.

So now I'm here and I plan on staying for a while and making this blog a place I can learn and grow through online journaling.

Welcome to my space.
