Hope everyone is doing well.

What have I been doing the last 20 years? Hmmm...... for those of you who have children, you’ll understand , once you have children time and events become forever tied to their age. Your remember things based on how old they were not you, luckily for me I was pregnant 20 years ago so I just have to remember her life to remember mine. ;)

I went to college, UW-Milwaukee, had a baby - Brittany 10/19/89, (now my baby is at UW-Milwaukee), meet my husband, graduated with honors in 5 years, working 2 jobs and being a single parent.....no idea how I did it. Divine intervention? (Maybe) Energy drinks? (No) Youthful energy and drive, wow I miss that!

Shane, my husband, graduated in 92, and we moved to Sheboygan in 94, bought a house, got a dog, and then got married in October 1995. The order is important, because I had to find a good school before I would buy a house, and then I could think about getting married. (kids tie it all together) In 1998, we build a house in Waukesha, stopped trying for more children and got a puppy – Black Lab named Cuda . 2003 brought a wonderful blessing and surprise - Erin Rose was born August 13, 2003. Proving once again, God does have a sense of humor.

In 2004, we moved to Oostburg, to take care of my in-laws. Much to my surprise I like living in a small town. We live outside of town within blocks of Lake Michigan, which is my favorite part. I love the beach; the kids and the dog love it too. The dog swims, and for a few weeks in August we get to enjoy swimming, too.

So, that’s 20 years in a few short paragraphs. Besides family, I work at Kohler Co. as a Web Project Manager, and love the work, but could use more time off. Recently we've decided to use our vacation time to travel. (What an idea– actually use time off from work to travel and vacation) We've been to Ireland, Hawaii, Alaska, and Germany. Nothing planned for this year, but I am still planning to get to New Zealand, Australia, Galapagos, Peru, and many others.

Can't wait to read everyone's update.
