Life in 250 Words (or more)

I can't believe May is already upon us and I haven't been active on here (again) for a while.  My apologies!  So I was pretty excited when I came across this Blog Everyday in May Challenge from Story of my Life.
So here goes nothing.  I hope I can keep up with the daily posts and I hope you'll follow along.

Today is about the Story of My Life in 250 Words or Less {give or take}

I was born in the north but I grew up in Orlando, FL.
I was raised by my grandfather since birth.
I was a Catholic school girl early on (plaid school uniforms and all).
I was lucky enough to grow up in a great area and enjoyed biking all over the city with friends without a care in the world.
The first person I met in elementary school is still my best friend to this day.
Was the goalie of our high school soccer team.  Played golf.  
Worked and had a job since I was 15 years old.  
Went through a “rebellious/lashing out” time in my life during my junior year of high school but luckily came out better on the other side. 
Moved to North Carolina all by myself where I went to school. 
Moved back to Orlando and spent some great times with friends and began my independent grown up life.  
More mistakes made.  Numerous lessons learned. Heartbreak and disappointment reared its ugly head at times.  Many insecurities.  Tears were shed but many laughs and fun memories remain within me.
Started my successful life long career.  
Left everything behind and moved to South Carolina.  Again...alone.
Moved back to North Carolina where I was lucky enough to meet the man of my dreams.  Married in Key West and happily married for almost 10 years!
Home buying.  Home remodeling.  Home selling.  More home buying.  More tears shed and more happy memories made.
Work.  Travel.  Work some more.  
Bought a boat!
Started a side business.  
Frequent many, many Jimmy Buffett concerts.
Christmas holidays spent in the mountains of Colorado.  Finally enjoy skiing.
Decided not to have children.
Lost 50 pounds.
Witnessed death of the only other man I've ever loved.  It was horrible and peaceful all at the same time.  
There are some regrets I have but not many.  
There is so much more to see and do but so far, my life is blessed.
{oops...way more than 250 (324) words.  Harder than I thought!}
