I have always wanted to start blog but never knew where to start. So why not just talk about myself…duh. I am not here to pretend to be someone else or think I am better than anyone but I want people to take something away from reading my blog posts. Here is a little bit about myself and what I am about.
My name is Winnie and I am about to be 33 years old next week…Eeeekkk. I am a lesbian, and married to the love of my life. We had a commitment ceremony in 2011 and last year we finally got legally married. Thanks Obama. Truly. I have never felt like my marriage was a fake but its nice to know that it is legal.
We have two dogs, Kinsley and Bailey. We recently had a death in the family, our sweet wild dog named Ava passed away six months ago to cancer. It was devastating. Kinsley was sad and had no playmate. My wife found Bailey and we rescued her. She was severely matted and needed a loving home and she got it. They are both black goldendoodles, which is so much fun when we walk around our black floors we run into them. Or they walk under our feet and we can’t tell who to yell at. But, we are all happy to have eachother.
We currently live in Arkansas, yeah….Arkansas. But….we live in a cool city. We truly love living here. Two lesbians living in Arkansas. We are lucky to live in this bubble where my wife has a secure job that has no discrimination and we have wonderful loving neighbors that are basically our parents. My wife and I have been so blessed, we met eachother and were poor and now we own our home and living a good life.
I don’t want you to think that we are perfect, cause no one is. I mean our marriage is pretty top notch, haha but one things that is a battle is my anxiety. You make think anxiety is not a big deal but it is. A BIG DEAL. My anxiety used to be really really bad and some days, its sometimes to hard to handle but thanks to my wife, I get through it. Anxiety to me is the stormy cloud following me around all the time. Something that has helped is yoga, and I will get to that in later blog posts.
I would love to see comments and stories from people that go through the same battle I do.
Keep Moving Forward.
Love – WBC
