About Me...

I am Gretchen! This is obviously my first blog. My best friend, Suzanne, has been trying to get me into blogging for at least a year. She went so far to put this page together for me. The least I can do is put something on here! My New Years resolution is going to actually be to start blogging.
So....a little about me. I live in Aurora, Colorado. I am a 27 year old stay at home mom. In a previous life I was a bartender and I miss it sometimes. Just the making of drinks and the business, not the drunk people! My husband, Dan, is a wonderful man. He is an awesome father. Our son, Grady, is currently 5 months old. He is, what Dan calls, a Baby Huey. He already weighs 25 lbs! He is such a happy baby. Hes silly and stubborn. I have a cat named Sheba. She is approximately 10 years old. Shes a beautiful black cat with a little white on her chest and has yellow eyes. She is the Queen of the House! I am very close to my family. And I was blessed with awesome in-laws. The only downfall is that they live in Florida.
I follow the pagan path and to be more exact, the Celtic Path. A good portion of my linage is from Europe and the British Isles, it only felt natural to me. I am very open minded. I don't care if you follow a different path then I do. Its your path. Do not judge me and I wont judge you!
I love music. I am a metal head from birth! Love my metal! But I listen to everything! Well....almost everything! I love nature. Going camping is one of my favorite things to do. I love to hike. I love the rain and fall time. Do not really care for snow. Go figure...I live in Colorado and don't like snow! I was born here and probably will not move anywhere else.
Well....I think that is a good start. I may not post another blog until after the first of the new year. But who knows! Another one may pop up before then!
