Introduction to my World

Let me start out by saying, HOLY COW!, I didn’t realize just how hard the blogging world could be. The first time I test drove this, it was almost like I had all of these things I wanted/needed to share and I ended up hitting road blocks. From what I have found, road blocks are totally normal and I should not have gotten discouraged.

I have grown so much in the last year as a person that at times it can be overwhelming to think about. The biggest thing that I have learned is that I LOVE doing hair. Any one who knows me knows that I only wanted to be a nurse my whole life. Who would have guessed that I look forward to doing hair every day!? I am so into make-up and fashion that it drives my husband crazy. What I wouldn’t give to dress the way I feel every single day! I’m not talking all designer stuff here, I love looking at boutiques online where the clothes are extremely reasonable. Unfortunately, spending any money on myself makes me feel guilty since I would rather it go to my kiddos. I have also grown in the sense that I have come to the understanding what true friendships and relationships with family mean. After an awful year last year filled with misfortune and death, I have realized what is really important in this day to day life.

More about me: Reading is really important to me. It still gives me a sense of wonder and imagination. Nicholas Sparks is by far my favorite author. I can read anything he writes within a couple days. The Secret is another guilty pleasure book of mine. I am very into inspiration and receiving what you give. The book is amazing and if you haven’t read it please just look into it.

Most important for last: I have two of the most amazing children on this planet. They are my everything (as they should be, right?) They motivate me to be a better person each and every day. My husband is my other rock. Sometimes, I know I am a bit of a handful in the sense that we don’t always see eye to eye, but he loves me unconditionally and shows it as much as he possibly can. He is a Veteran and my hero! (Please! When you see a Vet, thank them. You have no idea what they have been through and you could never imagine unless you’ve done it yourself.) Thanks for reading my Intro.

Much Love, Joc
