Oh wait…is someone actually reading our “About” section? Uh…um…hi there! I guess you’ll want to know something about us then…?
Well, first of all “us” includes myself, Camille, and my awesome, super cool husband Tij. Tij makes appearances on the blog, but let’s face it, I kind of run the show here, so I’ll give you a briefing on the “us” aspect and then get to the “me” stuff. Cool?
Tij and I met at a church dance when he was 17 and I was 14. (I thought he was totally cute but was super intimidated by how tall and grown up he was. Tij asked me to dance because he felt sorry for me since I hadn’t danced with anyone else.) We didn’t go on our first date or even hang out until we ran into each other 5 years later at BYU. (It’s amazing what puberty will do for you image.) A year later, we got engaged, planned a wedding, and started our adventure together. We both graduated from BYU and then made our way to the University of Utah for Tij to work on his graduate program, studying Speech-Language Pathology. Two years later and Tij accepted his first “real” job here in Las Vegas, continuing our adventure in the heat of the desert and the glare of neon lights.
And I am Camille! I am officially retired (seeing my post about staying home here) and trying to hone my domestic skills. I love to read. I am a mystery junkie, love Jane Austen, and have a penchant for self-help books. And of course, I love to read blogs – duh! I’ve moved about 20 times, lived in 5 states, and I’m pretty handy with a box and tape gun. I’ve finally embraced my pale skin and now I’m never far from a tube of sunscreen. I like to hike, swim, and kickbox, although it’s honestly a struggle for me to exercise regularly. My guilty pleasures include: BBC TV series, sugar cookies, electropop music, bubble baths, and Target.
I write this blog mostly to “journal” our lives as newly-ish-weds. This blog motivates me to actually take pictures and write down life as it comes. I want to be able to show our kids someday that their mom and dad are human. I want them to be able to see that we don’t have all the answers and sometimes we make things up as we go along. Being a responsible adult is hard work, people! And that’s what this blog is about. You don’t have to have it all together all of the time to still be happy and have a wonderful life.
