Welcome to my city of Cambridge Ontario! For many of you, you'll probably never make it out this way, so I promise to try and include as many pictures of here as I can. It's not the most exciting of places (and in fact we're gonna be listing our house for sale in the spring) but originally when I thought up this idea for the whole "where we live" kinda deal, I wanted everyone to see what I get to each and every day.:)
I'll bring my camera in the diaper bag all week and snap pics when I can. Life is pretty busy around here these days with 3 munchkins all under 4 of my own, and usually 3-4 daycare buddies during the hours of 8am-6pm.
First off I'll start with me. Obviously everyone has seen what I look like, but just in case you forget (hehe) here I am...
This of course is in my "earlier years"...this was for my 23rd birthday :)
I come from a family of 3 siblings. I'm the oldest. My parents were teen parents and I truly appreciate what they sacrificed for me. My mom was 15 and had to drop out of regular school, as it was looked down upon back in the day to be pregnant and in highschool. She managed to get her GED and went to hair school. My mom has worked for tons of popular places (our version of "mtv" here in Canada is Much music and she did hair for them for years, as well as working along side Paul Mitchell for his Canadian Division. She now has spread her wings into other areas and also completed a course for "life coaching" , which I think is really cool.
My dad was 17 when I was born, and never finished school so that he could go to work to support his new "little family". Sadly he never returned. He has had many different jobs as well, and has been working as a store manager with Home Depot for the past 13 years.
(** I have to try and find a pic of my mom/dad together...it may take me awhile on my computer but as soon as I do..I'll add it to this spot**)
My brother Bill (William) was born in 1989 when I was 6. I had lived with my grandparents and parents together before this point, and my parents decided it was time for us to move on. I remember saying that I wanted a little brother or sister so badly.
Bill is 22 now and has just graduated with his bachelors in GRAPHIC DESIGN. Hes' out in the working world and loves it.
Corey is the baby, and he's 20. He was born in 1991 when I was turning 8. We have a great relationship . Its funny bc of the age gap. Corey is in universirty for Psychology at this point, and not sure where he will end up.
This is from Christmas 1994..They'd kill me if they knew I posted it. Bhahah. Boxing day at our house is always for wearing "boxers"
This is Bill. He loves jamming on his guitar.
My brother and his best friend Darlene from last year.
This is Corey.
Corey and his girlfriend Crystal have been together since 1998. She is awesome, I love her just like a sister. They've already been through so much together, I'm hoping one day they will marry :)
