Currently working on a lengthy blog post about how my beautiful, blended family came to be but until then let me introduce you (for those of you who don’t know) to my husband and our four greatest accomplishments. I hope you don’t mind a little bragging!
Left to right …
Chy (Rome) – His real name is Chyrome, to us (family) he’s Chy, to his football family and friends he’s Rome. Chy is my step-son, however, he’s been all mine since he was 8 <3 He’s 20 years old now, super smart, and an amazing athlete! I’ve never known anyone who executes school and football with he precision that he does. He’s currently weighing out options as to where he’ll grace his next field, but until then he’ll continue working hard at college and maintaining his 4.0 GPA. Yeah, you read that right, college football AND a 4.0!!! #proudmom <3
Drue – My first born and probably my biggest headache! Jk, Jk, only because she’s the oldest (21) everything with her has been a first. She’s the one who’s taught me all the lessons and needless to say I’m still learning! No one ever tells you parenting adult children is hard, but it sooooooo is!!! Anyway, my sweet, little Druey, currently a junior at SDSU is studying Journalism and is striving to work in media studies. She currently co-hosts her own radio show on KCR Radio! Which gives me major heart eyes every time I listen. I also want to add that her work ethic is so inspiring! She works hard, pays all her bills including out of state tuition with little help from us all while taking 18 units!! I don’t know many college students who can pull that off, but she does, and with so much grace. <3
Reece – The love of my life. I could go on and on about all the reasons I love him so, but I’m gonna keep this short. So, I just want to say this, in our family, he sets the standards high. I might be the one who holds this family together, but he’s the one who leads by example. Because of him our daughters will marry men who love them no less than he does and our sons will make amazing husbands just as he is. Our love for one another runs this family and that’s the one thing I’m most proud of. <3
Lexie – This girl, my mini me. My freckled faced, brown haired, long legged beauty that keeps me laughing CONSTANTLY when we’re together is currently a Freshman in college for fashion merchandising! She’s (19) and also a manager at Billabong here in San Diego, which is why you see me wearing a lot of their brands :) She, like all my kids is going to do big things. I’ve know this from the time she was a very little girl, that fashion was going to be a huge part of her existence and I’m so excited to see where this journey takes her <3
Kane – The baby. Kane’s 15 and a Sophomore in high school. This kid’s mind is so creative that I can’t wait to see what his future holds! From filmmaking, photography, fashion, etc. he really has an eye for all things creative and trendsetting. He’s such a mixture of all his older siblings and I can’t think of any other place he would have prospered more. SoCal is definitely where he belongs. <3
