Greetings Bloggers!

Welcome to my WordPress! I am very excited to start blogging on this site! Below I have compiled a page of pictures with descriptions about me and my life, kind of like a picture book. Feel free to leave comments and feedback and check out my posts! Also be sure to add me on Instagram and Facebook. Happy blogging!

Meet Sarah.

Meet Sarah.

I’ll start by posting a recent image of myself. We all love selfies, right?! 🙂

What a silly cat! My cat, Rambo loves this pink bucket for some reason. He constantly jumps in it and sits. I named him Rambo due to the fact he is very rambunctious! I thought it fit him perfectly. He’s a little over a year old and I will never get rid of him. He’s like a kid to me. I love my little man so much!

The best cat in the world , Rambo :)

My cat, Rambo is silly but I love him. I have had him about three years and love him to death. He’s a little crazy but he wouldn’t be Rambo unless he was silly. He’s always hyper and I love it.

 

The love of my life and I at New River Gorge last summer.

Meet Chris. This man is the love of my life. We have been together over five years and are still going strong. We have been through a lot together during that time, and have overcome many struggles together. Most couples have not been through so much together and would not be able to work together to work through it so easily. Of course we have fights, but what couple doesn’t? However, we can quickly resolve arguments and remember how important it is to stick together. We work together for everything and I know I can always trust him. He’s very dependable and I’m very thankful to have met such a great guy. I never thought I’d find someone so soon in my life that I would want to spend the rest of my life with but I can say for sure that one day I will marry this guy. We live together in Fairmont, WV and it is amazing to know how it feels to actually be in love. I’ve told a few ex-boyfriends I loved them, but I regret it because now that I have grown older, I realize the real meaning of love. It is one thing to love someone, but I can honestly say I am in love with this man and want to spend the rest of my life with him. Not to appear phony, but this feeling I have for him is finally a real love.

Meet the parents.

Meet the parents.

I am very fortunate to have great parents. They are still married and going strong. I am their only child, so they are a little protective, but I’m thankful to have parents who do worry and care about me, unlike many other people. I have done them wrong countless times but they are always so willing to forgive me.  I know they are always there for me for anything I need if I just ask. The picture above was on our trip to New River Gorge about three hours away from my home with Chris and my parents. I moved out when I started college but they always tell me I’ll always be welcome at their house if I need anywhere to stay. I would be so lost without them. I don’t know what I would do. We have our spats but who doesn’t get in fights with their parents sometimes? I’m so thankful for them and although they worry about me a lot, I know it’s just because they care about me. I am their only daughter and will always be the one and only.

Driving to Ohio for a trip

Driving to Ohio for a trip

One of my favorite things to do is go for drives. I like to drive around the countryside near my town to calm myself or even just for some spontaneous fun. I turn the stereo up, strap in, sit back and relax, cruise around looking at the scenery letting the music help my stress level. In the picture above, I was driving to Ohio with one of my best friends, Michelle. We took a weekend trip. It doesn’t matter if I’m in the city either because I love to see the city at night and enjoy all the pit stops in the city that I cannot access in my town. Sometimes I take little vacations spontaneously when it is financially possible. Whether in the city or country, taking a drive is always a good time.

My poor Sassy went away from home one night and disappeared. She did this all the time and returned, but Father's Day 2013 she was gone forever.

My poor Sassy went away from home one night and disappeared. She did this all the time and returned, but Father’s Day 2013 she was gone forever.

Meet Sassy. Chris and I got this dog in Grafton, WV, a nearby town from my own. Luck was on our side to find a beagle that was so well-behaved and absolutely beautiful. Her previous owner called her Sassy and the name stuck like glue. I had dreamed of owning a beagle ever since I saw the Shiloh movie trilogy as a child and my wish had finally came true. We brought her to our apartment and got very attached to her. I have never seen a dog as well-behaved, friendly, and just a damn good dog all around as her. She was man’s best friend. However, Chris and I had to change residences and our new apartment did not allow pets. Fortunately, Chris’s father allowed us to bring Sassy to stay there until we could find an apartment that allowed animals. We were relieved to find somewhere to keep her until we could find a better residence to rent, and visited every day possible. However, she had a tendency to explore like any beagle does. She always returned home after a few hours. One lonely, cold Father’s Day we received a phone call from my boyfriend’s dad that she had been gone all day and he didn’t know about her whereabouts. We spent two weeks doing nothing but hiking through the woods on his property and nearby. We spent hours driving around the area searching for signs of a dog that had been hit by a car perhaps or a sign of a live and well dog. We never accomplished this task and I still wonder what happened that Father’s Day. Father’s Day began in the city I live in FYI, so it surprised me how unlucky this day always is for me. On Father’s Day this year, I got in a fight with my dad. I would think I would be luckier this holiday since Father’s Day originated in Fairmont, but I always have bad luck on holidays. I’ll go into that later. I have a blog already planned for my bad holiday stories. My bad luck streak for holidays is insane. Anyway let’s get back on track now, It was a very bad holiday and I still think about Sassy all the time. I wonder if maybe someone saw her and decided to steal such a beautiful, friendly dog or if she ended up mauled by an animal in the woods and dragged away. Maybe she even is still off running around as a stray many miles away by now, who knows, but I pray she is still safe, healthy, and alive. Although there is not a way to determine her fate, I know I will never forget my beautiful girl.

Job at Food Lion

True story, if you know me you know this is true.

Now that you’ve met my man, pets, and parents, meet my work life. I am currently unemployed for the first time since I first sought employment. I started working at Teletech and got fired during training because I was in the hospital a few days and missed too much work. I quit Food Lion for that job, or I would probably still be there. I was an office associate/shift supervisor and really liked it there, but wanted something with a little better pay. I made many friends working at Food Lion and actually enjoyed my job, but money talks. Unfortunately, I quit and now wish I could return to work there. Retail sucks, but I was in the office a lot and didn’t spend much time on register unless we got busy so it wasn’t bad. I miss it a lot, but I can’t go back in time or I would. As my second job ever, I feel I accomplished a lot of good work experience and received a promotion within my first year of work. It was great to avoid being a cashier and I was also trained as a DSD Receiver and in the deli/bakery when I received my promotion from cashier. Although it had its downfalls at times, overall it was a great job. I gained many exceptional skills and experience in my position. I would definitely still recommend shopping at Food Lion if you have not shopped there. The prices are decent and quality of products and services are outstanding.

First job at KFC working with one of my best friends, Michelle

First job at KFC working with one of my best friends, Michelle

My first job was at KFC. I worked there three and a half years as a cashier. I started in August 2009 after I graduated high school. I do have to say I looked Food Lion better, but I stuck it out a good while for a fast food restaurant. I saw many employees come and go during my employment, but made many new friends in the process. Although the job wasn’t great, I had fun at work with my coworkers and it changed my life dramatically. If I hadn’t worked there I’d have never met any of my closest friends nor my boyfriend. The picture above depicts an image of my friend, Michelle, goofing off a little for a snapshot at work with me. Due to the people I met, I am very thankful I took this job opportunity.

Well folks, I’ve covered the majority but there’s so much more I have to tell. I still want to post about myself again with a post or page about my friends throughout freshman year of high school until my current age. I am going to make a page or post about my time in college and hopefully more work soon too and I can blog about them all. And possibly about my favorite vacation to New York City. I hope you want to get to know me and will follow me posts! I will follow back for sure! And feel free to leave feedback!

Selfies for days. <3

Everything happens for a reason. Its life.
