When Jessi realized she wouldn't be able to go with me to Tucson, she admitted that if it was anybody else, she would really feel she had let them down. BUT... because it was me, she fully expected me to go on out there anyway and make friends, and go about my business. Welllll, let's just say, she was exactly right!!
Enter the margarita!
She also has a heart for the military wife. She, herself, being one, she understands the unique hardships which come with the deployments and frequent moves, and really feels a pull toward helping these women through her own experience for more than 30 years. (or longer? Hers was a Lieutenant Colonel, if I remember correctly). She's written a book, and for the life of me, I cannot recall the name. Sorry, Dorothy!! But I have a feeling you could google Dorothy Bonvillain, and you'll find it.
Not sure how this quote got nestled in here, but hello there...
Jessi, I guess you know me well. Mike is from San Diego, and he and I ended up having great conversation, and even left Waffle House together and did some pillaging and hunting together at African Village next door!!
Tomorrow, I take you to African Village!! But first, our question...
What has been your favorite age so far, and why?
Mine... 45. That is this past year. I know myself better every year. I feel more and more comfortable in my own skin. I love being an adult and know that I am getting better at it. I am free to go and do, and I have a husband who supports my free spirit. I am confidently following my gut to pursue my dreams, with an art studio, teaching leadership, freeing myself from a confining schedule, and being more present for my children. I love being a mama. I love being a wife. I love being an artist. I love inspiring others through teaching personal growth information and speaking opportunities. It fills my bucket to see my leadership team at MMPT take the reins and run a business the way I am confident it should be run... with passion and love and responsibility. I know I am making a difference in other people's lives, and that is fun and fulfilling to me. YOU?!
