Right now Reality TV shows are all the rage. Whether you are a
or a Duggar,
it doesn’t matter. People are putting their life out there for others to see, and a lot of people seem to be watching. Soooo, I don’t have a film crew to follow me around all day, but I thought I would give you an idea of how I grew up. It wasn’t Duggar style or Kardashian style, but it was a happy childhood.
I grew up in Central Florida. Palmetto bushes and Pine trees filled the landscape and Spanish moss waved from the oak trees. My parents purchased a tropical fish farm when I was little. [I know some of you may not have any idea of what that is. I’m trying to get some pictures of it and I will show you in another post.] Anyway, they worked hard together running a successful business off that 25 acre farm. We also had a horse named Candy and a bunch of cows.
Below is a picture of my second birthday. Parents, Grandparents and Great Grandmother are all pictured.
Here is my dad. My cousin and I are on the horse. The fish farm is in the background.
Some of my cousins lived just across the street (I’m the one on the end):
I’m the oldest in my family. I have one sister. Here we are posing for a picture before church one Sunday. My mom made most of our clothes. She was a great seamstress. This was probably Mother’s Day. My mom always had us wear a corsage on Mother’s Day. She also loved to give me perms for some reason. Those curls are not natural on my little head.
Just a little glimpse into my little life.
