My name is Lindsey. I wish my blog was as cool looking as everyone elses, but I'm still figuring that out.
I guess  I should start by telling you a little bit about myself.  I'm 24, and I'll be 25 in August. In those 25 years, I've learned and been through an awful lot.  I hope that some of the trials and tribulations will some day help me, help someone else.  I really want to learn how to blog better, but for now this is it. Just a modest little post about me. 

I already told you how old I am....hmmm. Well, lets see, I grew up in a very small town and things are really different when you grow up like that. You get used to that life, you find comfort in it. I miss it a lot still. My parents got divorced when I was 5 and I remember the day my Dad left but not much else surrounding that time. I was surrounded by family and friends and actually made it through okay. I was my Mom's first baby, and let me tell you, I was glued to her hip. We've been through a lot, more on that later, but today, I'm happy to call her one of my very best friends.
