WhO iS lOrIeN?

This is about me of course! Im Lorien Loveshade and I was born March 13, 1988 so Im 32 years old. I graduated
from high school yay Class of 2006! I graduated from my second four year college in 2011! I went to junior
college when I was in high school. Then I went to a four year college full time for two years while I babysat and
worked at a fitness center. Then my
BFF Mindy graduated from high school in 2008 and we started going to
another four year college in September 2008. I was an English major with a Psychology minor but then I studied
to be an Elementary School Teacher! Even though I graduated I still had half a year of classes to go but started
helping a teacher. Then in September 2012 I started teaching first grade! It took like 12 hours a day seven days a
week! But I survived my first year and the second year was a lot easier cuz I reused lessons. From 2015 - 2016 I
taught second grade so I sort of had to start over. But it was still a lot easier than my first year! I taught second
grade in 2016 - 2017 too. Then I went back to first grade for 2017 - 2018 and taught first grade in 2018 - 2019  
and in 2019 - 2020
and now in 2020-2021. But it is different with COVID-19!

WhO dO I lIvE wItH?

I moved in with Herbie because he is now my husband! We married on Aug. 6 2020 which is the anniversary of
when we started dating and when we started dating again!
We share two kids who are Emma and Christopher.
We live with Mindy whos my soulmate through the ages and one of my best friends. Glori who moved in with
Mindy and me on July 1 2019 stayed in our old apartment
but moved out to live in a  dorm at her college. She
was my brother Matthew's sother
then they had a trial separation but they are back together. Poor Mr Biggles who
my cat I adopted on Oct. 26 1998 died on Dec. 29 2020. I really miss him but he lived a good long life.

Mommy and Luis got engaged on Sept. 7 2020! They have been dating like forever. But they have not set their
wedding date. My little brother Matthew lives with them.

Flower with help from Bobbie who is Mindy's brother had their first son on Feb. 18 2017.
They are expecting
another in April 2021!

My grandparents Page and Perry, and Aunt Ebee and Uncle Frankie all live in a house thats right by the antique
store. My Daddy is divorced from Mommy & since September 29 2009 he lives about two hours away. My half
brother Benny and half brother Brandy have two daughtersl The first is Staci so Im double Aunt Lauren! Staci was
born January 1 2008. Brandy was expecting another child but miscarried on January 13 2012 which was sad.
But they had another daughter Kimberly on January 31 2014! They're both new year's babies cuz Staci was born
on the American new year and Kimberly on the Chinese new year. Austra whos the younger sister of Germana
calls me Aunt Lorien too.

My Grandpa Blaine who's my Daddy's Dad died March 1 2009. He was 78. I never got to see him much because
he lived so far away. But I miss him and I know Daddy really does. His wife my Grandma is in her 80s shes
. She was doing better but now she is in a nursing home.
