No one ever said life had to be serious. So I do my best to live by this mantra.
I am a mom of two kids that I love fiercely. They will one day probably be in counseling telling them how I effed up their lives. Since no matter what I do they will probably be there anyway, I will love them and do what I can and not worry about it too much. I will also embarrass the shit out of them by just being me.
I am divorced. It became final just over 2-1/2 years ago. I waited and tried to get my life together for a bit. Then I dated up a storm for a bit. And just when I was getting the hang of that and not taking it so personally I met a guy who seemed to really just kinda like me for me. While I don’t think he always gets me, he always seems to accept me no matter how crazy, silly and stupid I am. (I know! Something must be majorly wrong with him, I just haven’t figured out what yet!)
I love photography. I remember getting my first instamatic camera when I was little. It totally fascinated me. Then in high school I got a “disc” camera. But while these intrigued me the passion was still in bud form. I got reacquainted with photography in college. Then I met my now ex-husband, who was a photographer. I put down the camera, but soaked up the learnings that he and our friends gave out. Then when things took a turn for the worse in our marriage I picked up a camera for something else to focus on. I became hooked! That little seed with in me grew and now it is pushing it’s way out of me. I have no idea where this will go, but it’s fun.
I think that’s enough for now. I will try to show the good, the bad, and the ugly of my life. Life is messy and I’m finding out that sometimes it’s the really messy parts that make up the best parts.
PS: Things I love (outside of my kids of course): Chocolate; Dave Grohl (he’s mine!!); A good, dark beer; Good Music, Bad Music; Music; Movies; Reality TV (I know–I can’t help myself!!); Food; Laughing so hard you cry; Good friends who can call you on your shit, but love you anyway; …
