A Story of My Life

I recently learned about a challenge to blog every day in May and there are a bunch of prompts to help participants along. I always like it when blogs have a personal slant and you feel like you get to know the writer somewhat, so I’m going to use the challenge to share a little more of myself with the world.

The whole outline of the “program” can be found on the Story of My Life blog, and I found it via the Blue Paper Lanterns blog.

Soooo today’s prompt:
The story of your life in 250 words or less (or one paragraph… no one will be counting your words… probably)

What's that sound?!
I was born in Illinois in the late 70’s. When I was 7 I moved to Utah and lived in several different cities in Utah from 7 until I was 26 or 27. I was a band geek in high school, playing the flute and piccolo and loathed PE classes. I studied computer science and broadcast communications in college, graduating with my bachelor’s degree when I was just 20-years-old. I worked in television as a graphic artist for 2 years after college. During my second year in college I met the man I would eventually marry. We dated for 4 years before getting married. My husband went back to school shortly after we got married to earn 2 more degrees (in accounting), upon completion of his master’s he got a job in Las Vegas and we moved to Sin City. My boss offered me the chance to telecommute when we moved and I have been doing that for nearly 8 years now. I did my first marathon in January 2008 and have been hooked on running ever since. In September 2010 we adopted a boxer pup and named her Jade. In August 2012, a mere 10.5 years after we got married, we had our first child. Our little girl is now 8-months-old and I love her more than I could have ever imagined loving a child.

I’m sure that’s more than 250 words, but it’s one paragraph!

Blog Every Day In May


  1. I just found your blog. I’m glad I came in on the bio day.

    My Mom played flute in high school. My husband and I lived in Las Vegas for a number of years, but left before you got there.

    Good luck with keeping up with the daily blogging. It’s a real challenge.

    • Before the baby, daily blogging was manageable! Even with a full-time job. Now, it’s harder but I still love it!

      Thanks for stopping by! I’ll check out your site!

  2. This looks fun and I love these prompt type posts. Since I am hurt right now, I am trying to catch up on my Truth posts. This one seems a lot easier and I may just do it another month 🙂

  3. Dang, you and your husband are smarty-pants! And your daughter is just precious. I love these “story of my life” posts and reading a little bit about everyone’s backgrounds.
