Blog Every Day in May [Day1]


I came across this challenge quite randomly, 
but thought WHY NOT TRY to participate. 

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



I was born in El Paso, TX on a military base to a loving mom & dad. We moved around a lot due to the military and we became a family of five. I’ve lived in the NOVA area since first grade, enjoying the culture of DC but the quietness of the suburbs l. I graduated high school and attended college in the heart of Virginia. I had plans to transfer to a bigger school after the first year, but I walked on to my college’s soccer team so I stayed. My four years of college were fabulous and I graduated with a Communication Studies degree in 2005. The first year out of college was spent temping and living at home, but then my best friend and I moved in together and had the most fun two years ever. I am still surprised my liver is still working after those years. She left and I lived with a college friend, which sucked. But, I joined  kickball because of her, which changed my life. After a few long/failed relationships, I joined a NEW kickball team and met the man of my dreams. The past three years have been filled with kickball tournaments, wins, trips to Vegas, NOLA, Boston, NY, PA, Florida and a cruise to Mexico. The best day of my life was February 17, 2013 when my love proposed to me. We are getting married this September and I can’t wait for my life to truly BEGIN!

Cool Story Brah!
I think you got the wrong "best day of your life" though, we all know it was the day Babyspice was born ;)

So didn't know you were born in Texas. Is a sign. This is why we connect.
