Story of My Life (in 250 words or less)




Happy May Day!  I am taking on a new challenge for May- a blogging challenge that has nothing to do with crafting.  You can find out all about it from creator Jenni HERE.  I have a lot going on this month as it is, but I’m going to give it the ol’ college try!  I found out about this from Krista Smith’s blog.  Most of us know who Krista is and adore her and her sweet Saturated Canary images.



The challenge is to blog everyday for the month of May.  I’ve done this before back in October, but it was focused on my cards.  This time the posts will be a little more personal.  But don’t let that intimidate you!  There are prompts for each to day to help you along!  Today’s directive: The story of your life in 250 words or less.  Here goes:



My name is Regan.  I am the oldest of three and the only girl.  My parents have been married 40 years (I’m, um, well, sort of the reason they got married since I’ll be celebrating the BIG 4-0 myself this year! Lol) and I had an amazing childhood!  Thanks, Mom and Dad!  I graduated from both high school and college with honors.  I moved to CA and started working in the radio industry at the age of 20.  Sadly, I would follow my heart into a series of decisions that would lead me away from what I dreamed of doing (radio DJ), but would eventually bring me home and make me a mom.  After my year in Monterey, CA I would move to NJ where I spent my time working assorted retail management jobs and shopping!  At the end of this chapter, I ended up back home in MA where I married, divorced, fell in love again, had a baby, had my heart broken, and fell in love all over again with my new vision of family- me and my son!  Being a single, working mom is a challenge every day but he is what makes it all worthwhile!  Along the way I ditched retail for insurance, commercial real estate, and then the auto industry.  I still love music and shopping.  I’ve always loved to write which is why blogging is so appealing to me.  About ten years ago, I added paper crafting to my list of obsessions.  It all makes for one crazy, busy life and anyone who knows me knows I wouldn’t have it any other way!



And that was 262 words, but who’s counting!  :-)

Isn't life funny? To think we grew up so close to each other, and both moved to CA... and I'm so glad we got a chance to meet before I left MA! :) Great story, my friend - have fun with the challenge.
