I never thought I would start one of these. I am typically not one that keeps a journal and I would never scrapbook, but I thought I would give this a try.
My name is Stephanie and I am 35 years old for only thirty more days. I really don't feel this old. I certanly did not see myself where I am at in life when I was younger. I dreamed that I would have had children before I turned thirty years old. I never wanted to be an "old" mom. So funny how life goes. My only childeren are my two dogs, cat and three horses and sometimes my husband counts as a child. I am not complaining about where I am at in life, just more suprised. I guess if you look at my life though, I do things later in life.
I was the first person in my family to ever graduate college on either side. I am the very first! I hold that with honor. I worked hard for it. I graduated at 33 years old. I thought that college was the best time of my life. I had the most supportive husband who let me consentrate on going to school instead of a job. I don't think I could have done it any other way!
I have lived pretty much in the same spot my whole life. Jefferson County, Colorado. I love Colorado. I dont know if I could call anywhere else home. My parents live near and I see them often. My brother lives close by also so I get to see him often too. That really is a blessing in my life. I never realized how very close and kind of dependant on my parents I am.
I have horses! I have been horse crazy my whole life. My very first horse was Frost Sid Kay. I got her when she was 9 months old. She was a grey little thing with a black mane and tail and black points on her legs. I called her Sidney and she tought me so much. She is white with freckles now. People call that "Flea Bitten Grey". I will write more about my horses later.
