i am very excited to be taking part in this little challenge. a blog a day for the month of may. i am really bad at keeping up with these things but i like the topics so i am hoping i don't fail!
so without further ado this is my first post.
Day 1, Wednesday: The story of your life in 250 words or less
(i have 250 on the dot, not bragging, just saying)
midnight: september 13th, 1989. my little life began. i was born on my exact due date to an excited mom and dad. i grew up going to the same church my parents were married in and was raised to love my family, my country, and my God. i spent my early years running around with my brother with callused & asphalt stained feet and chlorine kissed hair. my mom says that when i was a little girl i was always barefoot and wild.
when i was a middle schooler i was awkward, insecure, and spent three days a week at church with my group of friends. i wrote poetry and saved soda cans from the drinks that cute boys gave me.
(backstreet boys concert. i wore that vest for nick carter. he loved it)
(yes, i am the one with the towel on my head. no wonder guys didn't want their sodas back after i took a drink)
high school was the years of blue eye shadow, first loves, concerts, and figuring out everything i was not, but never figuring out who i was. the years were rough on my heart and i dealt with the loss of loved ones, the betrayal of those i trusted, and fell far away from God.
(i wasn't lying about the eyeshadow)
(don't try to act like you didn't take myspace pictures. i know you did!)
and i am very blessed.
