Me

I’m a day behind, but when I saw Blog Every Day in May over at Jenni’s blog, I wanted to join in on yesterdays’ topic. There’s no way that blogging every day in May will happen for me, but I think it’ll make for some fun blog content. So here we go…today’s post – the story of my life in 250 words or less!

Grew up in a small town in Northwest Ohio. First born, with a brother 2 ½ years younger. Great family and a great group of friends. At 17 met a guy who was on his way off to college. He moved two hours south to go to Ohio State, we started dating, and a year later I did the same. Took me three years, but finally decided to major in Sociology, then freaked out about what to do with a Sociology degree and added Speech and Hearing Science. Graduated in 2006, got my first job in social services working with ex-offenders and still have never used that Speech and Hearing Science major. :)

Kept dating that guy (for a total of 6 ½ years…) but enjoyed the heck out of those first few years out of college. Having my best friend from home move to Columbus helped! Because of her I met my husband, but she never meant to be a matchmaker. Was still dating “that guy” (please don't judge!) but he moved to Iowa and I was finally strong enough to end it.  Spent more time with the one I knew was worth it, never looked back. Lived together after 6 months, started grad school, bought a house, got engaged. Continued grad school, planned a wedding. Got married, finished grad school, FINALLY got a job in higher education. No pets, no kids, just Aunt Jess and Uncle Kyle to two amazing little kids and that’s how we like it right now!

Whew! Alright that was 252 words, but I’d say that’s close enough, right?! 

Linking up, although I'm a day late for both...
