may 1 : life briefing.


i'm doing this thing. maybe i'll start dating my blog again, instead of treating it like a booty call.

in utah, i was born in the 1990's. raised with big bangs, a party-planning mom & a sweet dad.

six years later, my parents did it again & made my brother. we don't look anything alike but i love him just the same.

three years later, i was 9. my parents split.

mom didn't adjust well after the divorce. i remember a lot of alcohol, suicide attempts, & sadness.

she went to wisconsin to live with her mom. she wanted heal to become a better person and mother.

i was happy living with my dad & brother but dad started dating & that was weird.

when i was 11, dad got remarried in april. his wife & i don't get along.

on the other side of the country, mom was sober, rediscovered God, & she sounded happy.

in july of that year, she died in a car accident. she was suppose to come home in 2 weeks.

i was mad, then sad, then livid, then ungrateful, then i decided to go to church & i felt better. i felt happy.

high school was awkward but i had good friends.

my senior year, i had a pen pal named mckay. he was living in scotland at the time. his letters made me laugh & i loved him from the very start.

i married him in 2012.

we work, go to school, & kiss a lot.

life is pretty awesome.
