Gosh, I hate these things. If you’ve ever been in a meeting where they go around the room and ask each person to tell a little about themselves, then you will understand EXACTLY how I feel right now. As your turn draws near you freeze because you realize you don’t have any credentials that would qualify you for speaking to these people.
I graduated from a local state university over twenty-five years ago with a B.S. in Health Science with an emphasis in Administration. For whatever reason, I have always been more comfortable with communicating by pen or computer. My writing style is casual, southern, and mirrors the way I talk. I have zero interest in impressing you with my grammar skills or my massive vocabulary. Instead, I hope we can just take our hair down and be real. I have been told, that my writing talent comes in the form of being relatable, somewhat humorous, and honest, but I will let you be the judge.
In real life, I am a married mom of two children. My daughter started driving and dating this year. My son just started kindergarten. Recently, my husband was diagnosed with a rare form of leukemia and my hair started greying. I quit the corporate world three years ago to spend more time at home. Now, I work part-time as a fashion buyer/small boutique owner for plus-sized women. I LOVE creative outlets of most any kind –writing, scrapbooking, painting, home decorating, fashion buying, etc. Occasionally, that love spills over into the kitchen and I’m a decent cook. I would hope any talent shown in the kitchen would be rewarded by someone else cleaning my mess or maybe in the youngest actually eating something besides a chicken nugget. You can bet it doesn’t happen, but I would like it.
