for starters

One of my favorite things to do is hear someone's story. And I assume most of you right now are saying... "I don't have a story." But I'm here to tell you this amazing news, you do have a story. Everyone has a story whether they think it is exciting or not. Each and every single one of us walk around with a book and we are constantly flipping through the pages writing the heart of this chapter storybook. So for starters, I am going to start out with my story.
I grew up in the country with 2 siblings and the world's best parents any child could ever ask for. We got to go on vacations all the time, spent our summers at the lake, and kept very active with the community and all it had to offer. I went to a very small school, and participated in every organization/club/sport possible. I am thankful every single day for getting that opportunity. I graduated with a class of 26 and friends that I will have for the rest of my life. I am now taking part in my second year of college and it has been such a great experience. My freshman year I went to school not knowing what exactly to major in (what college kid does anyway?). All I know is that I had 2 strong passions: children and baking. Between many prayers and conversations, I decided to do what I have always wanted to do... go to culinary school. I am currently attending culinary school right now but I can't say that it has been what I expected. Throughout the summer, I kept getting strong urges pushing me towards children. Next semester I am starting elementary education classes in plans to get my elementary education K-6 special education degree. I am just normal like every other 19 year old girl. I have the best friends anyone could ever ask for, and am surrounded by positive people all the time. But here's the thing... I can't help but think about what the future holds all the time (just as any other young lady does). This blog is dedicated to my future... to my future children, future husband, future occupation, future adventures. We are always so wrapped up in the fact that we aren't totally satisfied with our life right now, but what a blessing it is to know that the best days of our live haven't happened yet.
