To the credit of some of my fellow bloggers I have decided to open up a little bit more on this blog and share some of my inner thoughts and who I really am with you all. So here goes nothing.
A brief history; I was born and raised in the southeast. I spent 30 years of my life in that area of the country. I had a daughter halfway through my 19th year, who is my world and has been the one stable constant in my life for nearly 21 years now. At the age of 30 I uprooted us and moved to Alaska. Yes, you read that right…Alaska. More on that in a future blog, I’m sure.
Three years ago, we left Alaska and moved to California where I was finally able to leave my desk job and get back into outside sales. This affords me the opportunity to travel excessively and see much of this country. Soon I’ll see another part of the world (China) and that will certainly open up the international travel bug for me. For now, I have no home, one car and live in hotels full time.

I’ve been married and divorce twice, graduated from therapy after divorce number two and a major heartbreak (that wasn’t from a husband) and really got to know who I am and what I want out of life. Today and nearly every day for the past four years, I’ve loved the person I am, enjoyed my life immensely and I work very hard to live in the moment.
I have been sober for nearly 10 years and I have had so much more fun in sobriety than I ever could have imagined and made some of the best friends I have ever known. I still dance and I sing loud (in my car…alone) and I have a beautifully, close relationship with my daughter that I couldn’t be more grateful for.
Finally, I love blogging and hope to set aside more time, beginning this month, to write and share more of my journey with you. Many have said I should write a book about my life and while that may happen one day, I’ll start here with potential excerpts.
Until next time!
