My Life in 250 Words or Less: Blog Every Day in May

Hi! It's Jilly. I stumbled upon this awesome challenge-- Blog Every Day in May.

I thought it sounded like a neat challenge. She gives a topic to write about every day to get our juices flowin'. I have a ton of blog post ideas, but get wrapped up in making each post "perfect", and have been struggling with writing more "real" stuff vs. other random, little things. SO, I am going to participate in this challenge! 

Today's prompt is: The story of your life in 250 words or less.

Phew! Well, here it goes...

I was born32 years ago in Honolulu, Hawaii. Yes, Hawaii! My parents met when they were both in the Air Force. After they got out of the AF we still moved around every few years ‘cause my Dad had itchy feet. I’ve lived In Hawaii, Maryland, Mississippi, New Mexico, Utah, Wisconsin, Texas, Arizona, and New York. Phew! I am the oldest of eight kids. I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, or Mormon, and it has always been a huge part of my life. Music has also been a big part of my life. I did choir and played the piano all through school, and even majored in Music. While in college I met my hubby. We’ve been married almost 11 years! Exactly one month before our 3 year anniversary we had triplets- 2 girls and 1 boy. They will be eight this month. That blows my mind! It is definitely a challenge, but one I’m happy to have after years of infertility treatments and fear that we would never have a family of our own. I get to be a stay-at-home Mom for them. It is a huge blessing.  But, I always feel like I’m failing at being a mom. I rip myself to shreds and focus on my flaws way too much, which I need to work on. I love doing things for other people, planning parties, and laughing. 

I could probably go on and on, but that's about it. 

I'm excited to see how the rest of the month develops! :)
