Allow me to Introduce Myself...

Allow me to Introduce Myself...

 I’ve been sitting around for the past day trying to decide what my first blog should be about. Apparently, the girl who never runs out of things to write about (and I do mean NEVER) is having a bit of a brain fart. I guess when I envisioned myself writing my first blog, I thought it would be something meaningful and life-altering.

So far, I’ve got nothin’. At the very least, I suppose it would be polite for me to introduce myself. If you’ve read my about me section, then this will sound a bit redundant, but if not then Hello, my given name is Theresa, but please feel free to call me Reese.

I’m a bit of a Jane of all trades. I cook (or at least attempt). Design jewelry and occasionally dabble with decorating cakes. I was born in the City of Brotherly Love ( Philly), but only spent the first 3 months of my life there. The other 24 years and 9 months of my life have been spent moving from state to state and country to country. I’ve finally settled down in Charlotte, NC with my fiancĂ© James and our beautiful 8 month old baby girl Jasmine.

 As it typically goes, most kids who grow up in the military either join themselves or marry someone who is serving.  I suppose that would make me a bit of an exception (for now at least). Luckily for me, when I met James, he had just decided to get out of the Army after serving as a medic for 8 years and go on pursue his degree, which is how we first met. Interestingly enough, we each have conflicting accounts of how we came to be a couple. He’ll tell you that we just happened to be in the right place at the right time, and I’ll say that he pursued me relentlessly. Either way, we’re together, so that’s all that matters :)

I’m a senior at UNCC where I am finishing up my Bachelor’s degree in communication, more specifically PR.  When I’m not hunched over my computer frantically typing papers, or engaging in a tickle war with James and Jasmine, I’m out trying new things. Zumba appears to be the latest in my long list of new ventures, which I highly recommend by the way.  I’d like to think of myself as pretty adventurous. James will tell you different though, but why would I listen to him? He used to jump out of planes for a living; it’s kind of hard to top that. I’ve gone indoor skydiving (really fun!) and whitewater rafting. Skiing, snowboarding, mountain climbing. I’ve taken cooking lessons, piano lessons and salsa lessons. In short, I’d like to think of myself as pretty well rounded.

 I have traveled A LOT. A pretty significant part of my life was spent living in Germany. I’ve traveled to France, Belgium, Austria, England, Italy, Switzerland and Poland, and I have every intention of going back to show my daughter where mommy grew up. Interestingly enough, while I was off leaving my mark on Europe, James was making his way through Asia. Through a combined effort we’ve either lived or visited four continents, and dozens of countries, but we’re not through yet.

“To me, the greatest pleasure of writing is not what it's about, but the inner music the words make.”  ~Truman Capote

I said before, I am the girl who never runs out of words. Whether I’m cooking, sleeping, playing with Jasmine, or lying next to James, internally, I’m always writing a story. I hope that this blog will be a way for me to make my inner music audible. So if you like it, stick around for the ride because who knows what crazy shenanigans we’ll be getting into next?

  2. Hello? I'm a blogger from Malaysia. Your template is nice, cool i may say. If you have facebook (FB), you may add "like" and "share" button.When people read something useful or need to share,they just click the like button and automatically, in their FB pages will be snippet of your blog.
    I have the met the same point before, where i dont have any idea to begin with. As i read your post, maybe you can post something about your travel. Add some pics and add extra information such as good place to live, great food to taste. One day in the future, your daughter might see this blog and say "wow mummy! I wanna go there the same as you both did" etc.. Keep on writing.

    sorry for my bad grammar. :)

    1. Hi Melissa,

      I'm happy you found me. I'm looking forward to stopping by your blog to get some couponing tips :) I'm kicking myself because I forgot to pick up the Sunday paper yesterday. I visit a few really helpful sites coupondiva's.com and southernsavers.com to stay on top of my couponing. If you've never visited them, they're worth the trip. Let me know what you think. Thanks again for following.

  9. I believe all small business should have business phone service. If you are one or two employee company or in business where all your staff is on the road, then you don't really need a business line. Just get a business phone service and it will work on top of your staff personal cell phones. When they receive a call, it will indicate that it is a business call on their call display so they can answer it professionally. All your staff can have their own professional voicemail system. You can monitor how many calls are answered and missed. I have been usingbusiness phone service from telcan. Check them out at: Check out Check out Business Phone Service
