Life on Cloud E18teen

My first post! What do I write?? I had a blog in the past, but it was awful and basically boring and for sure not kept up by any means. I went back to find it, and discovered it was deleted. My life has gotten a lot more interesting in the past few years. I know there is an about me section, but I think I can just briefly sum up my life and what I am about right here.Within the last 5 years, I got engaged, I traveled to Israel (I LOVE Israel), I moved to San Diego,  I married my husband Bryan, and traveled around Europe for 3 weeks on our honeymoon. This year on March 29th, we welcomed our son Brendan into the world and (Ok, just Brendan alone could have brought me to Cloud 18!) we also became home owner! Now I am guessing maybe you are thinking "Wow, nothing goes wrong in this girl's life? She actually believes her life is perfect..." Well, truth is, my life is not perfect. It is FAR FROM perfect, and I am a-ok with that, because I am a firm believer that there is no such thing as perfection. What would this world be like if there was perfection? I learned from my great grandmother ( I may mention this fabulous lady various times in this blog) that you take everything you are given in life, good or bad, and treat these events as life experiences and learning opportunities. I have run these words through my head more times than I could ever count, and they seem to just make sense. I live my life around this idea and it has really shaped who I am and how I handle life. With these words, I can perfectly accept and be happy with my imperfect life! Until my next post, here's to life and love on Cloud 18!
