So, this picture is near my home in Wyoming/ Yellowstone National Park. I've been so fortunate to have live near 2 National Parks YNP and Hawaii Volcanoes Ntl Park. Although I'm 6 hours from this area, we come up yearly and it's always beautiful.
I grew up in Hawaii on a sugar plantation, then next to the beach. I feel this has been a disadvantage as Hawaii is all about the outdoors and water. I've been married to a military guy for 26 years and have miss my home. However, this is something I've decided I must come to grips with as I now live in Wyoming and need to make this my home now.
My husband is a wonderful man. I've got 4 children and 3 grandkids. I'm a teacher but recently lost my job. This was the MOST stressful year of my life and I allowed the stress to get to me. Sooooooooooo, I've decided to get over it and stop feeling sorry for myself and take control of what I can and that is ME! I placed this profile picture of myself and my friend, Buddy (chocolate lab) as a reminder that I will be smiling soon. This is not because I will lose weight (on cholestrol and thyroid meds as a result of 2 much #), but rather because I have been given a chance to change things. With this said, here I go!
