A character on The Facts of Life inspired my parents to name me Blair. I lived in a small town in Illinois until accepting a university scholarship moved me to Oklahoma.
During my college years I learned a lot about life, a lot about God, and enough about marketing to get a degree – and later a position in Development for a non-profit medical organization.
The years between then and now have been filled with both joy and sorrow; more grief than I expected in a lifetime, and beautiful restoration beyond what I deserve.
My husband Travis and I currently live in Texas with our three dogs: Winnie – a black Pomeranian with lots of (sometimes too much) personality, Moxie – The. Sweetest! and sleepiest little Yorkie, and Linlee – a playful black and white Shih Tzu puppy.
While dating and first married, Travis and I were certain we wanted to raise children. But, now we’re not so sure. Our mindset has changed from deciding WHEN we’d have kids to deciding IF we’ll have kids.
I like to call our status: certainly uncertain. We’re certain we don’t have a desire to parent right now. But we’re uncertain of what the future holds – and want to remain open to life as it happens.
