Who I Am

As a kid I was a cowgirl, a dancer, an explorer, a clumsy comedian, and the owner of rabbit teeth (that lived in my mouth.) I lived on a working horse farm where I got to run a Bed & Breakfast with my mama and clean stalls for famous traveling equines like the Budweiser Clydesdales.  I was also the proud owner of a rescued zebra named Zelvis, two spitting llamas, a cow named Norma, an abandoned deer named Daisy, who was allowed to come inside if she wished, and one bad-ass catfish named ScarFace.  (All true.) At my dad’s I got to live the city life in a high-rise condo with cable, a Gameboy, an endless supply of Alphabet cereal, and a pool.  Life was gooood. 

As a teenager, I was most of the above, a little bit brattier, a slightly better dancer, and thank God, the owner of proportionally sized teeth.  At my mom’s, I lived in a really cool single-wide trailer on a mountain (while my step-dad built a mountain lodge) and at my dad’s I lived in the best neighborhood house ever built with my stepmom and new amazing baby sister.  I was a good student, a decent friend, and the largest stake-holder of Ensure, as my mother made me drink an inordinate amount in hopes of putting some weight on my bird-like frame.

As an adult, I am a mixture of all of the above, 25 pounds heavier (yes!), the wife of a real-life musical rockstar, the sister to a small group of super-humans, a teacher, a student, an aspiring potter, an adoptive mother, the master of two amazing puppies, and living, loving, and having fun in Music City, Tennessee. 

See.  I wasn't kidding about the rabbit teeth. 
You're welcome.
