Hi! See that girl in that picture? The one with really big mouth and the obnoxious pink stripe in her hair? Yah, that's me. Four years ago I had graduated from college and had a full time career set to start in August, but for three months I was absolutely free as the wind. I lived a blissful summer of carefree days and zero stress. Naturally, I dyed my hair pink to match. Now I'm a grown up girl with a grown up job and I'm not allowed to have hot pink running down my face anymore. But long live the pink stripe!
I have no right to own a blog, if you want to know the absolute truth. I don't cook well, my photography sucks, and I'd rather watch reality tv any day than delve into the unknown abyss of a diy project. But I like to write and I like to connect with people so I guess the internet humors me by letting me keep my blog. I grew up with seven siblings and had to fight to get a words in edgewise- now I keep fighting to have my voice whether or not others are fighting with me. Along the blogging way I have made some friends, and I think there's a few people out there who check back on the daily to make sure I haven't killed one of my students or burned down my house with a pot roast yet. As my best friend says, "I read your blog because sometimes it's kind of interesting." So here's to reading a blog that is sometimes kind of interesting!
That's my best friend. I stole that diet coke from a boy on that boat and to this day I do not regret it. Not one bit.
I'm married to a white skinned, brown eyed ginger boy whom I affectionately call Greg. I never thought I'd fall hard and fast for a redhead, but did I ever! Something about his charm. Either that or his Scottish accent. You can read our weird love story here and here if you are into weird love stories about perfect strangers. Greg's an actor by trade which means I spend a lot of my nights blogging while he rehearses, and I spend my weekends watching him act, sing, dance, juggle, you name it. During the day I am a high school English teacher and he works with kids with special needs. We definitely don't have traditional work and play schedules, but somehow we make the whole thing work and we even find time to verse each other in a good old fashioned game of Mario Kart. Now that's love!
Something really crazy happened to Greg and I last summer, and that is that in a moment on pure insanity, Greg suggested we go off birth control. It sounded daring and adventurous, two things I love, so I agreed. We could not be happier (or more scared!) now to be welcoming a baby girl in July 2014. The fact that we are willingly embarking on this voyage of parenthood tells you that we are either two very giving, loving people or two complete idiots. I'm not a betting woman, but if I was, I'd put my money on the idiots theory.
If you want to read more about me and my pretty normal life, then don't you worry, there is more for such a brave soul as yourself. You can check out my Best of Bon section or any of the posts on my right sidebar are pretty big hits with readers. But if you've had your fill of me after reading this about section, well, I can't say I blame you!
