I’ve been thinking…..With LoveChugs I never talked about anyone oustide of our little family, because, wellll, I think it was because I was the one choosing to display my life across the interweb…my friends and extended family were definitely not. I thought it may have been an invasion of their privacy to even talk about them.
One of the reasons I stopped with LoveChugs was because I felt like there were so many segregations of blog life and real life. What do I share? What do I keep private?
With the ‘private’ stuff piling up at that time….it became increasingly hard to share anything at all on the blog. I felt like a fake. A fraud. So much was going on behind the scenes—-and through all this I realized I’m an all or nothing type of girl. If I can’t share it all–I don’t feel inspired or motivated to share any of it.
This time around I’m including the important people in my life that make me, me. It makes more sense this way. It will give you a better, more well rounded idea of who we are.
So, without further ado…(whether they like it or not!) Meet my family!
These are my parents, Bill and Joy.
Bill is a food loving, beer drinking, invention making (I’m not kidding), sales guru. He’s also my dad. He’s the reason for my raunchy sense of humor, and non conformalistic attitude. He’s also got a great Instagram account rolling right now that I will shamelessly plug in. It’s: @bills_bottlesandbeers. Just follow it…I laugh at every caption.
This is Joy, my mom. I talk to her on the phone 2-3 times a day. She’s my ride or die…my best friend. And literally, my mama bear. If you’re mean to me, she doesn’t like you. That’s just how it goes. Her name explains her perfectly….she’s like a happy, joyful ray of sunshine that sings and dances around the house as she cleans. Everyone that knows her LOVES her and wants to hog her all to themself. True story.
Onto my brother, RORY! Rory is 25, and the most talented mofo I know. He doesn’t have to try at anything, and is good at everything. It’s annoying, and cool. He’s has an especially awesome gift at playing electric guitar, though. He is completely self taught, and a master. Don’t believe me? Check it out yourself…his instagram is @rorymarkham (another shameless plug). You also need to know that I like Rory more than any human, ever.
Last but not least, (more like first) is my sister, Haidyn. Haidyn is 13. She was born when I was 15, almost 16 years old. Haid is the most insane cheerleader there is. She’s only 13 and has been competeing in national competitions for 2 years. She’s crazy, and sweet, and kind, and funny, and so, so beautiful. Also, if my children had to choose who would survive out of a burning building, me or Haidyn, they would choose Haidyn. HAHA! Really, though. They would.
That’s them! My whole family. So, now that you know them—I can dump my enitre Iphone out and show you how awesome our recent trip to Cabo was. Joy and Billy took the the whole family for Christmas and it’s been my favorite vacation to date.
They rented theeee most insanse house in Los Zacatitos–and if you’re down to vacation out in the boonies of Mexico, I highly recommend it.
So in no particular order…Here we go!
