I actually go by Trisha, but I thought that I should, perhaps, be a little formal since we’re just meeting. For starters, I am from the Bay Area, CA…San Jose to be exact and while I’ve moved around The Bay a bit, my heart will always be there, even though the San Jose I knew and loved isn’t really what it was for me growing up. Ahh, the innocence of childhood and growing up with an imagination that is utterly unheard of these days. The good ole’ days, I guess.
Fast forward a bit and I am now a mom to two beautiful girls; Lola is 9 and Phoenix is 1. Quite a gap, but I guess that makes college easier and I’ve been told it will keep us young, although I’m not too sure about that last one. My husband, Arnold, and I met just out of high school back in 2003 and have been together ever since. Happily ever after so far and yes, that makes me 33. I am the oldest of two sisters, Melinda (32) and Trinity (19) and am blessed to have besties that are the sisters that God wanted me to have too…Judylyn (33) and Jessica (32). I’ve known them so long that we have equal amounts of “dirt” on each other to keep the silence ha! I am blessed to be surrounded by much love.
I am employed full time with a day job, own my own 80s themed 5k/10k race (Radical 80s Run) and am also working on a holiday run, but I still feel like something is missing from my already hectic and overly booked life. They say some people just always want to be busy or need to be busy and while I don’t necessarily think that’s true for me, I do seem to like to have something that occupies my thoughts and gives me something to look forward to. I think this blog might be just what I need.
I used to have a lifestyle blog back in 2007-2008 that documented my everyday life, pregnancy with Lola and my first year as a new mom, but because it wasn’t really a thing back then and I didn’t really feel the connections that I was hoping for, I sort of just gave up on it. Regretting that just a teenie weenie bit, but I am back because I truly to enjoy writing and expressing my thoughts. I’m not big on social media posts on sites like Facebook, but something about blogging is different to me. It’s more like an electronic diary and I can’t wait to see where this all goes.
Cheers to new beginnings!
