My Life in 250ish Words

{Oklahoma State. A big part of my life.}

My life has been marked by unconditional love since day one. Half my childhood was spent in New England, and I know that is where my deep love for my family was developed. Surrounded by countless aunts, uncles and cousins, my brother and I were born into a crazy Italian clan that taught us how to have a good time.

The other half of my childhood was spent in the great state of Texas. This is the place where I began making memories and {bosom} friends. My childhood in the scorching heat of Dallas was truly charmed. There, my parents instilled in me a sense of adventure and a desire to live a life full of experiences and challenges that would serve both my own wellbeing and also the wellbeing of others.

As a teenager, I struggled with the typical angst that those years bring. There was some hurt, a lot of tears, and a fierce determination not to let others bring me down or steer me away from my dreams. Those dreams eventually led me to an amazing university, life-long friends, countless adventures, a faith journey, and a dream of seeing as much of the world as possible. It also led me to some situations and people I wish I’d handled differently. But then again, I wouldn’t be where I am now, would I?

Today, I find myself in my dream job, with endless possibilities ahead of me. I continue to be amazed at the blessings in my life. I never know what tomorrow will bring {and it isn’t always sunshine and rainbows}, but I know that I will always strive to make each day extraordinary.


So there you go. My {brief} life story in a nutshell. Or more specifically, 277 words. I hope you are having a wonderful first day of May.
