My bell collection started with a bell I received for Christmas one year when I was a child.
My first bell was of a girl in a white gown, my name printed across her skirt.
My second, which I got the same Christmas, was of a mother cat in a long skirt, holding her baby kittens.
I still have both bells, along with many others.
I haven't yet unpacked them.
I also collect miniature clocks.
I love clocks.
My house would be filled with them if my husband would only let me.
My dream is to one day have a grandfather clock. It'd be perfect in the
I live near an Air Reserve Base. It used to be an Air Force Base.
My dad was a career United States Marine before he retired to civilian life.
When he retired, we moved to a city with two nearby Air Force Bases.
Only one is still there. The other was closed several years ago.
I loved going to the air shows.
I can't wait to take my daughter to one.
Seeing the F-16 Fighter Jets was my favorite part.
I used to daydream about flying one someday.
Now I dream of flying a helicopter.
My mother was a school teacher before she retired.
She ran a daycare for a number of years when I was growing up.
I had a crush on the boy across the street.
My first crush came earlier though.
I was six. He was thirteen.
I met my husband my first year of college.
We got married seven and a half years later.
