Day One: The Story of My Life

I am excited to take on this challenge from Story of My Life.  Feel free to join in. 

So here it goes the story of my life.................

I was born in Salt Lake City, UT.  I grew up with three brothers and one sister, in Heber City.  I loved growing up surrounded by majestic mountains.  

 My dad instilled the love of golfing, fishing, hiking, biking, camping, snowmobiling, boating, skiing and not being afraid to go for my dreams.

My mom is the definition of what a mother should be.  She is my example of faith, trust, hope, endurance, hard work and charity.

Growing up with a dad who struggled with alcoholism on and off taught me a lot about myself.  It taught me a lot about forgiveness and unconditional love.  Alcoholism in the end ended up taking my dads life.  I still feel him close and know that he is in a better place.

I danced from age three all the way to dancing professionally for the Utah Jazz.  Dance gave me the confidence I needed in life.

I graduated from the University of Utah in the Spring of 2009.  As much as I couldn't wait to graduate, there is still a little part of me that misses school.

After marrying my husband he moved us to California.  I had such a hard time adjusting.  I learned so much through my first year of marriage.  I am breaking down and starting to love CA.

November 9th, I became a mom.  Having my baby put into my arms for the first time, is a moment I will never forget.  Motherhood is my greatest accomplishment.  My baby completes me.

  1. Thanks for sharing this, I truly enjoyed reading more about you! We really do have quite a bit in common when it comes to our family. And Utah to California, THAT WOULD be a big change!!

    ps: your pic is sooo CUTE!


  2. Ok. I just got into Dancing with the Stars because I'm a huge Ravens fan, and I'm hooked! I forgot how much I love to watch dancing, let alone dance myself (I was never an actual dancer though :)). Anyhoo, maybe I'll have to go give Zumba a try. I've heard really great things about it! Congrats on getting back to teaching and this smoothie looks fantastic. I'm a smoothie freak but just need a better blender so I'm not picking little chunks of kale out of my teeth. :)
