First of all, I would like to thank you for taking the time to actually read this and/or even reading/following my blog. I am new to this whole experience. Putting my thoughts, stories, etc out there for the world to read is a little strange and overwhelming to me at times. I have to tell myself to be myself and all will be good. This first started out as a project for school. One day I hope I can overcome the fear to continue blogging after this class; but enough about that lets talk about me.
Let me first start off by saying I love the simple things in life. Like driving when I don’t hit any traffic, a nice sunset, or when you buy or order food and your food total comes out to an even amount. I love the sound of silence. All to often people feel the need to replace silence with music or talking, instead of taking in the silence to notice and appreciate the things around them. I am a lover of all animals, but particularly fond of my German Shepherd, Susie. In my spare time when I’m not working I enjoy putting puzzles together. It’s one of those things where I come home from a long day and unwind with some wine and my puzzle. I am a lover of all things Chocolate! There is a place in Houston, Tx called The Chocolate Bar. Anything and everything you could ever imagine is made out of chocolate. I felt like I was in a scene of Willy Wonka and The Chocolate Factory. It was absolute heaven. All this rambling though doesn’t mean anything if I don’t tell you why I am the way I am or where it all began.
I was born and raised in Victoria, Tx which is kind of like the center hub to either go to: Corpus Christi, Houston, Austin, or San Antonio. I grew up a humble and modest life, where you only put on your plate what you were going to eat. We made happy plates in my family in which I was rewarded with a sticker to put in my, ‘sticker book’. My mom, at the time, was a single mother who just wanted the best for her daughter. She worked quite a bit when I was younger to where my grandparents raised me before I even started school. A lot of my values and morals are things that I learned from them. Now that I am an adult, my momma and grandparents are like my best friends. I call them when I need advice, how to perfect a recipe, and even when I need car help. I owe many things to these three people. All their love, values, advice, and humor are what made me the person that I am today!
