I am Alicia. I live in Calgary, Alberta, Canada with my wonderful husband Keith (to whom I have been married to for almost 4 years and going strong!) and our gorgeous cat Tissue (he is a 2yr old Siberian Forest cat), he is spoiled worse then a rotten child. It's disgusting really.
This blog is basically my journey through life and the pointless thoughts and events that happen in it. The big issue in my (our) life right now, INFERTILITY! Dang what a pain it has been. We have been trying unsuccessfully to produce offspring for the last 2 years now. We are seeing a Fertility Doctor (who is a mean, abrupt women) who has diagnosed me as the "issue" of the couple! My poor husband has a defective, broken wife but yet continues to stay with me in-spite of my deficiencies. So I imagine a lot of the blog will be about this issue. Luckily it is not the only thing that defines me, I am a very busy, spontaneous, crazy dreamer of a girl and plan to tell you all about it.
UPDATE! I am pregnant!! We are due with our first child April/09!
FURTHER UPDATE! Our daughter was born April 26th 2009 at 6:03pm. Her name is Ivy Marie Eleanor Millis, she weighed 7lbs 9oz and measured 20inches long! She's perfect.
My job is relatively boring. I am an Account Manager that creates Emergency Response Plans for oil and gas companies! I am blessed to have this job, so I will try not to complain to much about it (ya right!). See I actually went to college to become a Child and Youth Care Counselor, which I am truly passionate about, but I had a unfortunate experience at my last position I held and got burnt out quick (if you work in this field, you know how quickly burn out can happen) so I decided to leave before things got bad and concentrate on having my own children instead of raising other peoples (note bitter tone)!
In my evenings and weekends I have a few other endeavors. I have a wedding planning business called Event (shameless plug) which I have been running for over 2 years now! Its something I truly love to do and all started up because once my own wedding was finished (which ended with me balling my head off outside my new husbands changing room, depressed because the day I had dreamed about since I was 6 was now over and would never happen again) I HAD to do something wedding (it was after all my life long obsession!), so I took a home study course and received my diploma in Professional Bridal Consulting. Along with this business I sell Fifth Avenue Jewelery (its a good fit in the wedding world) (2nd shameless plug www.fifthavenuecollection.com/amillis). And if that was not enough to fill up my spare time I have recently fallen in LOVE with interior design (due to the renovation of my entire house!) so I will charge a small fee and help out others with color choices, furniture shopping and accessories! I have no education in this field, just an eye for it I guess so I don't ask for much (e-mail me at email@example.com if you are interested!)
As you can tell I have many dreams and I am not the type to dream and just think about what I could do with my life, I love to try out crazy ideas and plans and see where they take me. I think of myself as someone who doesn't give up easily and sees the beauty that is in this world and the potential in everyone to succeed at their dreams! (so cheese sorry, but it is true! honest!)
Well thats the basics, stay tuned to the blog if you are interested in learning more about the crazy life I lead!
If you have a question, or just want to say hi, e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org I will get back to you, it just may not be quickly, but I will try!
