3: - My sister was born on August 10th 1999. This changed my life completely. I was no longer the only child and center of attention. At first i LOVED being the older sister, but as the years went on and she began to talk, i changed my mind. _ Right after the birth of my sister was the first day of kindergarten. This was significant because it was the start of all my education. _Because of the birth of my sister Courtney, we had to move to a new house because the one we were currently living in did not have enough rooms in it for 4 people. This changed my life because we moved to a completely different city, which eventually meant a new school as you will read later. | 0-10
4: 11-20 | ~ At the age of 12, I graduated from Alice C. Stelle Middle School. This changed my life because now it meant business, no more fooling around. I needed to get good grades in order to get into college. ~ Only 6 short years later, I was graduating Calabasas High School. All my hard work had paid off, and i was college bound. At this point, I knew that my life was about to change. I would be moving out and starting a life for myself. ~ On August 12th 2012, a few days before my 18th birthday, i moved to Lawrence, Kansas. I was attending The University of Kansas as a freshman, double majoring in Communications through film and media studies and special effects theatrical and media makeup. This changed my life because not only was I living in another state far away from my family, I was starting my career path.

This changed my life because eventually Mr. Mungle retired and left the company in my name! ~ A year after getting married, my husband and I got pregnant with our first child. Nine short months later i gave birth to a beautiful baby girl. This through my life for a turn because now i not only had myself to take care of, but my child as well. ~ A few years after taking over W. M. Creations, i won my first award of many to come. This put my name out there in the "movie makeup world" which allowed me to gain even more clients than I already had.

11: Josh spoiled me this Valentine Day. First he picked me up from work and whisked me away to a spa retreat where we enjoyed getting pampered all day and to top it off he took me to dinner at a lovely restaurant overlooking the largest waterfall I have ever seen. It was very romantic. I felt so loved. It was an unforgettable perfect day. Thanks Babe.
12: Molly and Becca are my happy thoughts. They bring so much sunshine, laughter and joy into our home. I'm always fascinated by their wild imaginations. They inspire me to be daring, take chances and dream. I am so grateful for my little giggly girls. Life would not be the same without them. | 51-60 genetivity vs. stagnation

15: Kendra, Beth and Leah had a blast on their trip to Colorado this summer. Kendra just got her drivers license and was in the mood for a road trip so they all packed up and left for the open road with Colorado in their sights. It was hard to see my little girl drive away, she is an adult now and its time to let her go. I'm glad they had fun and arrived home safe. She'll always be my little girl...
16: We all had a blast at the 4th of July beach party in San Diego this year. Kelly won the watermelon eating contest and Parker experienced fireworks for the very first time. It was great to spend time with so many wonderful friends. We can't wait to do this again next year.
