Welcome to the GreatSchools community! Tell us about yourself to start building your profile.
I am a military wife and mother of 2 beautiful little girls. We currently live in Gulfport, MS. I am a liscensed cosmetologist as my job. My life is pretty laid back. When I am not working I am at home with my family. We are hardly apart. I am a very social person, but choose not go hang out at the local bar. Don't get me wrong, I love a good time, but my girls come first. Being military makes it hard to build long lasting friendships, but I have been fortunate enough to have the best group of friends in the world. Some have moved out of state, out of country, and some are new to our country. Our hang out time includes playing cards, and chatting about our children and life. I am a Momma's girl. She is the wind beneath my wings. I am quick whitted with a sharp tongue when I need to be. I am also the most down-to-earth kind hearted person you could imagine.
