SeVeN ThInGs AbOuT Me

1. I was a perm-a-holic as an elementary student.
I would beg my Mom to perm my hair and then cry and throw a
ca-nip-shion fit
because I couldn't breathe all the way through the actual "perming" process.
The strange thing was when the lovely poodle perm would wear off,
I'd beg for another...and my Mom would DO IT.
God bless her.

2. I am a Southern Girl to the core.
I love God.
I love my family.
I love my state.
I tear up at Lee Greenwood's "God Bless the USA"
I love living in the heart of Texas.
I love Sonic.
I use words like CA-NIP-TION on a regular basis.
And I stop at every 5th Dairy Queen on road trips.

3. I have lots of little freckles and I love them.
They are part of who I am and when I was little my Granny Tot
told me they were angel kisses.
That when I slept at night the angels would come down from heaven,
just to kiss my face because I was so precious.
She told me that story with such conviction that I accepted
it as absolute truth till I was in 5th grade.
And now, I tell Cade and Gracyn the same story.

4. I was on drill team in high school. We were called the Toy Tigers, ha!

5. I actually enjoy cleaning my house. GASP...I could seriously vacuum
everyday if i could find the time.
I find that when my house is a mess, so is my mind!

6. My greatest joys in life are with my children.
They make me smile more, laugh more, question more, worry less,
and try more things I wouldn't normally do....and I really cherish that.

7. I have a new love in my life.
I am committed to some how finding the time
to devote to honing my skills in this area.
And well, let's be honest...if you've seen my photographs, I'm gonna need
A LOT of time.
There is just something about certain photographs that are able to capture
a moment that would have otherwise been lost forever that intrigues me.

Maybe one day I will be proud of my own.

Thanks again for the award Jennifer, I am humbled.

Becky, thank you so much! Do you know how much your post made me miss Texas?? I can't listen to God Bless the USA without choking up either, and I can just hear and smell the fireworks whenever I hear it.
