Now don't get me wrong, it definitely WAS NOT perfect but in comparison to some of my years before...lets just say...it was pretty darn close!!
The thing that I am most proud of is that I purchased my own home. A wonderful place for my children and I to call our own and make a million memories in. A safe, warm and nurturing environment for each of us and we needed that! Believe me...it was LONG overdue.
