33 YEARS, WOW!

I can't believe I've been around for 33 years now, it's mind blowing! Sometimes I have moments when I still feel like I'm in my 20's, I just got married, my almost 6 year old was just born. I remember distinctly my feelings the day I moved back to Florida, it's just nuts! I can't help but think of the time line we made at our women's retreat and how disfunctional mine looked compared to everyone elses. :o)

Here is a brief timeline of my crazy life thus far.. (believe me, there's a ton more I chose to omit to cyberspace)
