About

Hey There! Β I guess Β I should at least introduce myself. Β πŸ™‚

I really don’t know what to say here. Β I feel like I’m on an interview being asked, “Tell me about yourself.” Β I never know how to answer that question, do you? Β I’m so glad the days of interviewing are behind me. Β At least I hope.

So let’s see…I’m a mother to twin boys. Β I’m a middle school counselor. Β This is my 21st year and I love it. Β Middle school has its pros and cons, but I love working with this age group.

This is me with some of my former students who are now adults. Β  Β  Β  Β  Β  Β  Β We were on a party bus in Spain.

I enjoy life and positive living. Β Life is too short to be weighed down by negativity. Β I love spending time with family and friends and love meeting new people.

I love to laugh. Β It is my own personal form of communication with others. Β Laughter to me is a universal language of friendship. Β For those who know me they know me best through my laughter. Β Its more than just a chuckle or a grimace on my face. Β It’s an embodiment of my soul that I share with others.

I have never been much of a writer and never quite understood how to write until the constant redo of papers in college with red marks. Β I still feel that some of my professors were extremely harsh and just didn’t like my style. Β Throughout the years, we grew to compromise.

I began blogging as a way of expressing myΒ inner most thoughts with others. Β Its like having a personal diary with the world. Β I would review places I’d visited on various sites and received good feedback. Β I would read other blogs and get inspired by them. Β Sometimes I noticed my comments could be long winded and felt I needed to have a place to write when that fire was lit under me.

When I first began, I really didn’t have a clear focus and to be honest…I still don’t. Β I just write from my heart about my everyday journeys adventures. Β Random thoughts come to mind and I begin to write. Β Sometimes, I can see a vision for an item, but don’t quite know where to begin. Β So, I just quickly jot something down in case more thoughts on the issue come up later, which has happened.

So what can you expect here at Sunshine and Elephants? Β A bunch of random thoughts, with honest details, that sum up this quirky thing I call life! Β I want my readers to get a sense of self-acceptance. Β Its okay to be you because no one else can do it better. Β Thanks for stopping by and come again soon.
