What you can expect:
The brutal truth of me, without all the sugary coating.
Here I am just me, UNCUT and UNEDITED.
I talk about my family, my divorce, and a lot about MAKEUP.
If you leave me a comment, I will love you forever. :)

So check this out

We found an apartment.
Then we decided we wanted it.
Then we acquired it.
Now we are packing all our stuff into boxes.
Next week we are moving everything to the new place.

I really haven't been this excited in a long time!
Want to know the best part?
I'm not even scared.
Everything I know about our situation says I should be...
but I'm not. I just feel good about it.

Let me tell you a little story... I've told it before, but I can't seem to find the link, so here you are, the nutshell version:

September 1995, my 5th grade year.
I had tons of friends, tons of fun, and had completely established my identity and reputation. I was kind of a big deal.
The only problem? All those things now lived on the other end of the Salt Lake valley. My parents moved me to a little-known town, and I was sure my world had ended. I vowed to never forgive them, and I made every effort to punish them for their decision.

Now I'm moving my little family right back to that same town (which is much bigger and more impressive now), and I will be sending my children to that same school where I thought my world had ended.  Do you know why?

Because it became home.
Because it's a clean, safe place to live.
Because when I think of home, that's where my mind travels.
Because I want them to grow up to be at least half as awesome as I turned out.
Because it feels right.

I have 8 days to pack everything and move.



  1. so where are you moving? tell me tell me!

  2. YAY!!!!!!!!!!!! Oh my gosh, I'm so excited for you guys! I can't wait to come see your new place! (Sometime, soonish... hopefully!)
