Blog a day in May: Day 1

Today I'm starting the blog a day in May challenge. 
I'm linking up with Amber over at pinup at heart. Amber and I met while working together at TCSC in South Minneapolis. She's a rockabilly lover with a husband, and their three canine kids.
Check her out for yummy recipes and vintage inspiration!

Today's task is the story of my life in 250 words or less (or one paragraph, no one's counting...probably).

So here I am, starting a day late already!
Ready, set, go!

I was born in Minneapolis, Minnesota to two very nervous parents. My ultrasound showed cancerous cells. So I was moved from Abbott Northwestern to Children's Hospital. The cancer turned out to be calcium deposits, and I was a very healthy baby. My Mom already had two girls, Jessica and Molly. So I was more like a living doll when I was born.

In 1988 we welcomed my baby brother into the world. I hated him for a while. 
But now I can't imagine life with out him! I can cheesily admit that he's probably my best friend.

Our parents split when I was five. We moved to St. Paul, which I still consider to be home. Then we moved to the burbs. I started working at fifteen, so I could buy a coach purse. I had a boyfriend all through high school. After we graduated I left him in the dust. I was engaged to someone else at only 20. But we never made it to the alter. I was a lone ranger for about five years. I laughed, I cried, I kissed a few frogs, & partied entirely too much!


On my 25th bday in Vegas, I met him.

It was as close to love at first sight as it comes. We met drunkenly in the wee hours of the morning. 
We then 10,000 mile long distance dated for a year. 
Then I took the leap of faith and moved to Australia.

Here we are almost two years later learning and loving together.
