Today is Day 1 of the Blog Every Day In May challenge, and I must say, this has already proven to be harder than I anticipated! Today's topic is "write the story of your life in 250 words or less." I admit, my response took on a different form than I anticipated, but I decided to just go with it.The story of my life is one of constant motion. At a young age my family moved from upstate New York to West Virginia. I had an amazing life in West Virginia, but never really felt “at home.” I missed my grandparents…I missed Lake Ontario and Adirondack grape soda. I felt misplaced and was constantly looking towards that next big step in life, hoping it would take me to where I belonged. After high school, it wasn’t hard to leave that small town in WV behind. I packed my bags and never looked backed as I headed towards Lynchburg, Virginia. There, I buried my face in textbooks and novels for four years and experienced an immense transition. I learned about comma splices and Americanos. I grew spiritually. I fell in love. After I graduated I moved to Washington. Moving 3,000 miles away sounds frightening, but it wasn’t. Adapting to life here hasn’t always been easy, but I’ve never had to do it alone –Steven has been by my side. Shortly after my move we got engaged, married 6 months later, and bought a home. Our home. And one day it hit me –he’s my home. For the first time in my life I felt settled and I knew I was exactly where I belonged. My life of constant motion came to a rest.
Steven has my heart. Steven is my home. The story of my life is a closed chapter. This is our life, and the story has just begun.
Exactly 250 words. Mission accomplished.
Sorry for the mushy, gushy love-fest post. But it's the truth, yo. Deal with it.
