Story of my life.

Hi there. I've been a bit MIA - sorry about that. In general, I don't really have the words for the month of April. Many things were written in my head, but for some reason, I just couldn't get them down on paper (screen). C'est la vie.

In an effort to get myself back into blogging (and really, into writing in general), I'm taking on a challenge: blog every day in May. This is a link-up with Jenni at Story of My Life. She's offering writing prompts for every day of the month, and I'm going to do my best to tackle them. No guarantees that the writing won't be rambley and jumbled - bear with me!

Day 1: The story of your life in 250 words or less.

I arrived in this world exactly two weeks late, on a cold January morning in Germany. I can’t help the fact that I’m always late – I was literally born that way! My sister came along almost three years later, and our little family of four shares a tight-knit bond. I was an Army brat who didn’t get the typical experience: we moved a lot before I was 5, but I spent K-12 living in just one house. I was always pretty indifferent to living in Virginia, but as I’ve gotten older, I’ve found myself really attached to it – it truly is my home state, and I’m proud of it. My childhood hobby was dancing – everything from ballet and jazz classes to competitive dance team. I can tie a perfect hair bow, and I still have a deep love of glitter. I toured college after college, and when I stepped foot on the campus of Virginia Tech, I knew I was home. VT was the only college I applied to, and Blacksburg will always have my heart. I met my husband in a poetry class, but, before you ask, he’s never written me a poem. Our wedding was a huge party with a quick ceremony first, just like we wanted. We have a crazy cat who we rescued, and we’d like to have a dog someday. Now, we’re hunting for the perfect house with a deck and a yard that can be our family home – we know it’s out there somewhere!

Bam. 250 words on the dot!

Hey girlie I'm stopping by from the linkup and love the vibe of your blog. I'm a fellow VA girl as well and I LOVE fitness! And while my daddy was ARMY we've stayed in the same area since 1st grade [im 30 now haha]

Loved reading your snippet of life, well done.

We had a crazy party too with a quick ceremony! :) LOL. And by the way--so relate to the "typically late".
