The name of my blog is MyStory-MyBlog, so I guess the best place to start is with my story!
My story began in Colorado where I grew up and met my husband of 20 years. After living in both Alabama and Maryland, we finally decided to call Southern Pennsylvania our home. Our 3 kids are pretty much the center of our lives. My oldest daughter is 19 and is technically on her own at college right now, but comes home frequently. My son is almost 15 and a freshman in high school and my youngest daughter is in 3rd grade. So I have seen it all and lived to tell the tale!
I have a degree in English (but not in education which is what everyone assumes) and have been a stay at home mom since I graduated 20 years ago. I started substitute teaching last year to help contribute to the family while still being available for the kids before and after school and during the summer. Not really sure subbing is my life calling, but I enjoy my time with the kids. And it pays some bills until I find out what I want to do when I grow up.
Recently I realized that something has been missing from my life. I am an eternal introvert with a lot to say. But with no skills to say it out loud to actual people, I thought what better way to get my thoughts and feelings out to the world than a blog.
My family and my experiences will be the foundation about which I will write. I have some unique points of view when it comes to a variety of parenting and family topics. I hope you will come along with me and take part in my story!
