First thing out of the way for all of you who are wondering I live in Oregon not Ore-gun more like O-r-egon. The reason I say this is no one gets it right unless they are from here. When people think of Oregon I am sure the first thing that comes to mind is the wild west, pioneers on the Oregon trail, Lewis and Clark and trees lots of them. Oregon in itself is a very liberal state that firmly belives in conservation the people in Oregon are very unique unto themselves. We have been called tree hugers, weird and liberal hippies but in realty the thing about Oregonians as we call ourselves is that we love living here and we love our state and we want it to stay beautiful the way it is. Just look below at the picture I snapped off of my moms back deck. How anyone would want to take that away from this lovely earth I will never understand.
In my life I have had my try at many different things and to be completely honest I am just trying to make my way in this world just like everyone else. I am a wife, mother, daughter, sister, and I am one of those people who believe that family matters most in life. I always put my family first but next in line in my heart are books. As a child I read a lot and remember wanting to spend my grade school recesses inside in the library because that was fun to me. I guess I never really changed in that aspect because my husband had to tell me he was tired of the weekly bookstore trips and library trips. Do not get him wrong he loves to read too and reads more than me and faster than me which I hate but I think if he found more things he would enjoy reading he would constantly have a book in his hand just like me. Life is interesting for me to say the least I have two little monsters that are 6 and 4 and they are the loves of my life alongside my husband. My life would be so boring with out them.
How is it I came this point in my life to be blogging you ask? Well to start with I was always the artistic person in the group but also the person who loved to read. In my younger years I worked hard to broaden my horizons with my art work but as I got older I found I was leaning more towards books. I did go to college for graphic design and website development but I also was working for an art minor at the same time, I went for 4 years and was on the deans list a few times. I loved school and love learning it is one of my favorite things in life. I feel as a human beings we are meant to evolve and sometimes that means mentally. Blogging found me by accident, crazy as it sounds I email Robin Maxwell to gush to her about "Signora Da Vinci" and she emailed me back with a few links and one of them was a blog. I wanted to follow the blog but was not sure how to and accidentally signed up for a blog in the process which was a good thing because I guess some things are meant to happen. So I am here and not going anywhere because now I found people who are like me and now I could never let them go.
Just for fun I posted my birthday astrology since it is Napoleons birthday also it just makes me laugh thinking of him and me being similar.
