Hello, Readers! Welcome post, sorry its long.

Welcome to my blog!

This will be my place to vent, to grieve, to process and to share the daily happenings of my life.  I will also post positive things. Hopefully I hope to eventually post my photography, recipes, writings, etc. I hope to gain some sort of following eventually. For now, I'd like to tell you a bit about myself.

I'm 25 years old, and I live in PA with my gorgeous fiance.
I work as a preschool teacher full time.
I love my job, my interactions with the little ones and their families, and the fact that I have summers off! ;)

My fiance, Nick, is a part time EMT and full time Paramedic. I am VERY lucky to have found someone willing to work hard for us so that we can live.
We aren't rich, but we aren't poor either and we try to have a date night at least once a month.

We got engaged on Valentine's Day 2010 and as of todays date,we have been dating over 20 months.

My Mom is my best friend, and I have a few other best friends that make livin this crazy life possible.

I will always be my Daddy's babygirl, and right now things are not easy for us as he was in a horrible motorcycle accident in NJ on Father's Day.   But, he is here, and for that, I am eternally grateful. I love my family VERY much. They mean more to me than anything.

I have a gorgeous sister, who is married. She has a baby girl named Hailey-Rose, that I love and spoil to pieces. I'm an Aunt though, I'm allowed. That girl makes me smile, no matter the circumstances. She really adds life to my life...if that makes sense.

I enjoy reading, writing, singing, acting and talking on the phone. I love social networking sites but I hate that our connections between people have turned sooo technological. Now instead of receiving phone calls on my birthday, I get wall posts...but guess I can't complain. It does make thing easier.

I write poetry, and will probably be posting some old stuff on here to clear out my myspace, which I never access, later on. 

Nick and I have been through a lot in our time together, but the past few months have changed my very being.  But more on that in a later post.

Welcome, thanks for reading.
