My Story

My Story
I have recently been thinking about my life journey, where I am right now and where I am going.
I am going to be 40 in just over a week! Wow! I don't think you ever feel older on the inside :-) I am married to Victor for almost 11 years and I have 5 children, 2 of them with Victor and 3 from my first marriage. We moved to Idaho almost 5 years ago to raise our children in a safer environment. I have loved every moment of living here. The people are warm and friendly, it is extremely safe, nice weather, good schools. There is a saying about coming home to where I always belonged and that is how I feel about Idaho.
Victor is a chiropractor of 30 years!!! Wow! He is absolutely amazing and the best you will ever find! If you really want to know what is going on with you, what the root cause is of any health problems you may have, make sure to come in as a patient. His website is Over the years, we have always been looking for prod…

My Birthday Invitation :-)

40th Birthday Invitation

Planning my 40th Birthday

Countdown to June 26th, 2010 and the big 4 0

I know this many seem strange, but I am struggling with turning 40...I know, I know, perhaps it is not so strange. My whole life I have heard "older" people, who now don't seem so much older to my almost 40 year old mind, say that they never felt any older on the inside, that on the inside, you always feel 19. I am now truly starting to understand that. I don't feel 40 inside. This past few years I am definitely changing. I am getting stronger and more sure of myself. I have my own mind and am learning to speak it, I have value and intelligence and I can voice it now. I am definitely getting stronger. And, yet, I have far to go, I still feel like a little girl on the inside, longing for the approval of my parents, which will never come, longing for unconditional love and to feel cherished. I guess those feelings never fully go away.

So, Victor and Amber are planning a party for me, but they have let me contribute greatly to…
