yesterday & a blog friend


Yesterday, the weather was gorgeous. I stepped outside and instead of feeling the muggy humidness of Florida weather, it was cool. The sun was behind the clouds and the breeze was blowing. Sweat didn't instantly drip down from my face and back. Oh, it was pretty much perfection. If seeing fall styles appearing on all the blogs didn't get me into the season, this new found weather most certainly will. So please, weather, keep it up. I think we've got a good thing going ;)


Need a new blog friend? Well this cutie is certainly one to connect with.

Hi Blank Page readers!  Amy was so sweet & has given me the opportunity to stop by + say hi to introduce myself!  Thanks for bearing with me, I appreciate it :) 

So I guess I better start off by saying I'm Christina:

and I blog over at My Life, Laughs, & Love - a blog about my life, things that make me laugh, and the love of my life (betcha wouldn't have guessed that one...)  I also share my weight loss journeys/struggles and the occasional embarrassing confessional post, and anything/everything in between.  

I'm not really an "outstanding" person, but am rather a pretty average Jane (which is completely okay by me!)  I love my fiance, family, friends, (and football), and am completely obsessed with my job.  What do I do, you ask?

I teach.

High schoolers.
And I'm 5'2".

I'm sure some of you are rolling your eyes thinking "ugh, why?!" while others are rolling your eyes thinking the job is a piece of cake, but I don't teach your average run-of-the-mill kids.  Mine are truly special.  I've met young men & women from all walks of life who don't let any obstacle come in there way.  Whether it's a not-so-good home life, a disability, or a dispassion for Math, the fact that they show up each & everyday to give it there all is what brings me back to work.  Can you remember how tough high school can be?!  

My dream is to inspire at least 1 of them in the way that each of them do for me (and I hope I'm already off to a good start - my past kids greet me with huge smiles & big hugs... I'd consider that a success!) and I can't imagine doing anything else.  

My life isn't always perfect, but I'm happy it's mine & I'm glad to live it.  I hope you come on over to say hi + share my experiences with me!  Be nice though, I don't take harsh criticism well ;)  Thanks again & again, Amy!
See? She's a keeper. Give her blog some love everyone.
