10 Years

   My high school reunion is this Friday, and it had me thinking about what has happened in my life the past 10 years.

   So lets see.  I went through a couple of rocky relationships, and then met the love of my life :)  I had to take some medicine that made me gain 30 lbs. that I had a bad reaction to.  Lost some friends, but reconnected with an old friend who became my best friend and is now like a sister to me.  My Grandpa passed away suddenly and I miss him very much.  I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia and had to quit my job.  I went to school and got a certificate in graphic design and made some great friends.  I got married to my awesome husband. I sold some of my paintings.  I had a miscarriage, which was very hard to deal with.  A few months later I got pregnant with my daughter Avery, and she is absolutely amazing.  I've spent the last 10 months loving every minute of watching her learn new things.  I started crocheting again and remembered how much I enjoy it.

So, I am happily married, have a baby, and 2 cats.  I have 3 tattoos 1 I regret.  We own our home.  I have great friends.  My family is incredible.  My Mom will always be my hero.  I still love to paint and crochet.  Fibromyalgia hurts really bad but I am dealing with it.  I love being a stay at home mom!  I am pretty happy where these past 10 years have landed me :)
