There is no better way to start a new adventure than to just dive in, right?
This is about as awkward as filling out the “about me” section of a dating site, but here goes nothing…
My name is Samantha, I am 28 years old. Born and raised in Maryland. I have 2 son’s my oldest, R, is 12 and my youngest, M, is 9 and both of them have ADHD, my oldest also had a plethora of other diagnoses that we will talk about more later. I had my boys very young (15 & 18) and was a teen mother. And NO, I do not plan on ever having more children. I am currently happliy married to “G”. I have also been married before and got a divorce. I have a dog, his name is Bullet. He is an Australian cattle dog (blue heeler)/border collie mix. He is a rescue we adopted from a local shelter. I have a cat named Pepperoni. He showed up on our front porch after his previous owners abandoned him during a move and we took him in. I also have 2 leopard geckos, Sid and Nancy. I am a hairdresser, and have been doing hair for 10 years. I am the manager at a well known chain salon. I love my job and couldn’t imagine doing anything else. But this blog is not to promote myself as a hairdresser.
I am forever trying to better myself and my life and the lives of those I care about. I am all about trying to be as natural as possible (hence the hippie bit in my blog name). I care what goes into and on my body and my children’s bodies. I am always trying to be more conscious of what we use and consume everyday. I am also trying to eat better and be more active in an effort to be healthier, along with quitting smoking, drinking plenty of water, getting enough sleep, and taking care if my mental health. I do struggle with anxiety/depression/and ADHD, I chose not to medicate and in an effort to better my mental health I am seeking help from a therapist. I am also working on managing and coping with my stress better. And of course any parent knows that as a parent you are forever trying to parent better, and being married I am constantly working on bettering my relationship with G (this marriage is gunna stick).
So there will be lots and lots to blog about, I am in no shortage of ideas and hopefully sharing my life and putting my story out there will be helpful for some and entertaining for most.
