My Life in 250 words

I am participating in this lovely gal’s blog everyday in May challenge.

Today’s topic is “the story of your life in 250 words”.

Born Lindsay Nicole Roberts on May 7, 1983. The big 3-0 is next week guys!

I’ve been born and raised in sunny southern California. I grew up with what I thought to be the perfect childhood. A dad in the movie industry and a stay at home mom, a big house with a white picket fence, and the nurturing and love that every kid deserves. Until one day on my way to 2nd grade, my mom told me that her and my dad were getting a divorce. It rocked my world. I’ve moved more times than I care to count so roots were something I have never known, yet always longed for.

I was privileged enough to attend an all girls school for junior high and high school and it was there that I found my friends for life. I learned some of my biggest life lessons through my college years. I had my first run in with death at 24, and that forever changed the way I view life. August 5, 2009 was the best day of my life thus far…Landyn was born and made me a momma. My heart was stretched in a way I never knew possible and she proves day after day to be my most challenging gift. I spent last year picking up the pieces from some curve balls that were thrown my way, redefining myself, traveling, and creating a life that I never imagined possible. Writing, fashion, and health define my passions and this space allows me to share a piece of each one with the world. In December I crossed paths with Josh and wake up each day feeling so incredibly blessed to call him mine. Life is good you guys. If this is what happiness is, it has never felt so good.

5 Things you didn’t know about me

lindsay robertsphoto c/o Love Letter Photography

I was recently tagged to share 5 things about myself that you may not know from reading my blog.

Here they are:

1. Packing an overnight bag gives me anxiety. Something about planning outfits ahead especially with unpredictable weather overwhelms me. I never know what I want to wear until the morning of, and I always leave something behind.

2. I get weekly manicures to keep myself from biting my nails. I’ve been biting them since I was a little girl. My grandma paid me $100 to stop when I was ten…that lasted a couple days. I’m working on it Grandma.

3. I can’t finish a book for the life of me. I have 3 on my night stand that I’ve attempted, but I can never carve out the time.

4. Chalk grosses me out. The texture and the sound it makes as you write…it gives me the hebejebes…is that even a word?

5. I went to an all girls school for junior high and high school. Post on that experience coming soon.

I tag this gal and this one too.

That’s all the randomness I have for today.
