Welcome to my World

If you were to look up the word “quitter” in the dictionary, you’d see my smiling face staring back at you.  At least the “old” me.  Hence the name of my blog….”7th Time’s a Charm.”  I can’t tell you how many times in my life I have dreamed about becoming a writer.  I also couldn’t tell you how many times I’ve attempted (a/k/a trying to come up with an idea…making some notes…and quitting) to make that dream a reality.  Definitely more than seven….but “158th Time’s a Charm” just didn’t have the same ring to it.  Plus, seven is always a lucky number, right?  Anyway, I have decided to take another stab at it.  This time feels different though.  As I get older, I really sense the urgency of being able to fulfill my dreams.  I only have one life to live, so I better at least try to make it the one I want.

I am going to document every step of this journey and share it with you.  I hope doing this blog and having your support will keep me motivated.  I also hope that maybe I can inspire other people to finally try and make their dreams come true as I fully intend to finally succeed this time.

I guess I should tell you a little about myself to get started.  I’m 36 years old and live in sunny Florida.  I’m married to an amazing man who is undoubtedly my soul mate.  We don’t have any children…well at least not in human form.  We have two cats that are the apple and banana of my eyes.  They really are the most amazing cats in the whole entire universe (as I often tell them). Yes, that is them below laying on top of laundry…haha!  Those are my boys!

IMG_1617I finally graduated from college in August of this year with a BA in Political Science.  I’ve been working in the legal field for eighteen long years now.  I love traveling.  I just wish I could do more of it.  I ADORE Disney.  It’s really an unhealthy addiction.  We go as often as we’re able to.  If I’m not at Disney, I’m usually listening to Disney music or watching Disney movies.  I can’t help it.  It’s just magical.  When I’m not being a complete Disney dork, my husband and I really enjoy off-roading in our Jeep!  We’ve only been doing this about a year and a half, but have really embraced it.  The feeling of going through mud, climbing hills and maneuvering through the woods in a naked Jeep is really a feeling like no other. Here I am strutting my stuff!

Jenn Jeep 6I have many other interests, which I’m sure I’ll touch on along the way….but for now, it’s a start.

I look forward to sharing my journey with you all!!
