Ultimate Blog Party 2010

If you're stopping by for the first time because of the UPB'10 I just want to say thanks! I am totally new to this blogging thing and decided to try it out as I'm looking to meet some new people out here on the interwebs. :)

Let's start with a little about me.
My name is Jasmine, I am 25 years old have been married for 6 1/2 years and have a 2 year old daughter named Zephyr. I teach 7th grade science and LOVE every moment of it. I was born and raised in Glendale Arizona. I moved up to Flagstaff to go to Northern Arizona University where I graduated from. From there my hubby got a job at the now defunct Bear Stearns in Manhattan. We lived there for one year before I became pregnant with our daughter. We immediately moved back to Arizona thinking that being closer to family would be better for our NEW family. Boy were we wrong. We've lived in Arizona for the last two years and quite honestly I can not wait to leave. The only problem is we can't figure out where to go. :)

I originally started this blog because I had lost some deep/serious/long-term friendships to silly high school stuff and was deeply hurt by that. My husband also "deconverted" from Christianity (as he calls it) at the same time, really leaving me alone in my faith and my grief of these friendships. I really needed a place to vent and cry out the someone or anyone who would read. Since then, not much has really changed, but I am learning to cope with what has gone on in my life and am looking to build new friendships that I hope will last a long time.

Let's end with a little about you.
Please leave a comment letting me know who you are and what your favorite Crayola Crayon shade is.

  3. I forgot to say that crunchy is just another way to say, granola or hippie. It falls in line with the green movement but I'm not extremely hippie so I say I'm somewhat crunchy, or just crispy :)

  11. Well, if you don't mind winters, Michigan is a great place to live :-) Oh, and there's no jobs here. But the beer and wine is good! I'm a food blogger. I don't have a favorite Crayola color. DH and I are finding our own faith journey. He was a new Christian when I met him, I work for a denomination but have been disillusioned with traditional church in the past. Now I'm finding a great bunch of folks who believe in living out their faith, from a variety of denominations.

    Hope you're enjoying the party! It's so fun to learn about different people and blogs.

  20. How was your husband's "de-conversion" harmful to helping you cope with the loss of your friends? Did his de-conversion also come with a loss of compassion for you and your feelings?
