Hello! Thanks for stopping by….even a cursory glance at my About Me page makes me happy!
I live just outside Fort Collins, Colorado with my husband, two dogs, two feisty cats and a hedgehog. I am currently a free spirit enjoying each day that God has given us! I’m a former Communications Specialist aka 911/police/fire/ems dispatcher. It kept me busy for 10 years until I recently decided to make a life altering change and stay home to focus on living life. I love God, running (seriously love it 🙂 ), reading, watching TV for hours on end and playing with the critters I call kids. Zumba is the best exercise ever invented, napping is underrated and singing is a great way to feel better. Oh and I use LOL & OMG far too much for someone who hasn’t been a teenager for a long time. Although I’m fairly certain those acronyms are too old for kids these days!
My hobby/passion/free time is spent taking pictures. I love my camera(s). I have a really nice DSLR Nikon, a small point & shoot and my phone. At anytime one of those is with me. I take a million pictures…maybe not that many but in one day I’ve been known to take up to 300 pictures. A lot of them are posted here but I also post on my other blog 168 Hours of Motion.
My main reason for starting a blog was to share a little humor. Somehow misadventure and debacles find their way into most of what I do. Occasionally my brain thinks I’m a dumb blonde. I wanted a way to chronicle things that happen in my life. I love to write and there’s no material greater than your own misadventure. Plus it’ll give me something to read when I’m older and have lost most of my memory…and probably gone crazy.
My other reason was a way to share these times with the
family and friends who live so far away. My closest family members (my parents!!) live 734 miles away…a lovely (read:sarcasm) 10-11 hour drive. Needless to say I don’t see them often but I love
You’ll see me around the blog world as Ruby but my real name is actually Robbie. Years ago a drunk man would call work just to chat because he was lonely. He would specifically ask for 4 of us but he never quite got my name right so he would always ask for Ruby. My friends picked up on it and have called me that since. I actually think a few forget that I have a real name. 🙂 Some people ask why I go by it on the blog and it’s because at the time I started this blog I was looking for more of an anonymous world. I, sometimes, am a ridiculous blonde who does some pretty dumb stuff. Since I’ve gotten to know a lot of people I’ve decided I wanted to be less anonymous but I still love my nickname. Plus since this is all online I didn’t want a lot of people thinking I was a man. 😉
Thanks for checking me out! I’m honored if you decide to follow along (sometimes I’m still surprised that people actually do). I love comments and will try my hardest to always reply to every comment even if it’s only to say “Thank you.”
