I have five of my owns sons and seven step children (but stepkids from different marriages).
It took me seven years to graduate; and, while in school, I had my fifth son. I delivered him during finals week of my junior year!
In fact, my children would say that I am addicted. My stepdaughter brought me my first chai, on a freezing morning of watching the kids play soccer back in 2003 or 2004, and I have been addicted ever since!
I have had a photography studio for over six years and have done freelance interior design on the side.
My passions have shifted to traveling and blogging, now, though.
Not exactly fun, but...I survived some wild things during that 14 year marriage. While some events were downright horrifying, I am amazed and proud of the person that I have become as a result.
When I have decided to cut my hair, I have always gone SUPER short.
But, I always regretted it and went right back to straight hair down to my waist.
