There is a song by Tim McGraw with this title. The song is about a soldier that dies in battle. My title has no such connection, however, it does have a point. If you are reading this blog, you might be lost!

I am nothing special. I live in a little house; my soon-to-be husband, 4 month old baby boy, and jack russell terrier are pretty normal too. I spend a lot of time with my family; the grandparents, parents, brothers and sisters, aunts and uncles, cousins, etc. I am very lucky and blessed to have the family that I have. There is no family I know that is like mine. They are so amazing and wonderful, my world would be empty without them. And I digress….

I work at a center for children with autism. I have been in the field for 8 years now and there is nothing that I would rather do. There may be days that I come home with open wounds, bruises that cover my appendages, and a concussion….but I know that no matter what these children do to me, what I am doing for them has a greater impact. I have worked in many different positions within the company I am at right now I am working in the admissions department. Its not exactly what I want to be doing, but since I had my son, I find that I have more energy at the end of the day when I am working with the parents and schools rather than the children. I think that I will be going back to school soon to finish my education (masters- only 2 classes left and then PhD!), so working in admissions will serve a purpose then as well.

I am in the process of losing weight right now. I have lost 17lbs in 2 weeks. I dont have a target weight; I go by how I want to look and feel. Its a more accurate way to lose weight I think.

I am excited to start my blogging adventure and hope that I can write often!

My baby boy and my dog. They are the same size..... for now.
