May blogging month & about me

I saw this on a few of my blogs today and thought I'd attempt the challenge over at Story of my life: Blogging every day in May. I'm always game for a challenge. :) Today's topic is the story of my life in 250 words or less.

My name is Laura. I was born August 30, 1984 to two amazing people I get to call my parents, and was graced by my baby sister Lisa in 1988. I was raised in the suburbs of San Francisco and lived in the same house until I went to college. I graduated from UC Santa Cruz in 2007 with a degree in english language literatures and dreams of one day writing a book. I'm the only person in my immediate family to graduate college with a bachelors degree. I travelled Europe for 6 weeks post graduation with my then boyfriend (aka, my husband) and promptly got a job upon returning. That was 6 years ago and today I work full time in human resources and love it. I live in downtown San Francisco with my husband, our cat, two chinchillas, and our fish. I have four tattoos (although most people always say they never think I would have any), and aside from my husband my mom is my best friend. San Francisco is one of my most favorite cities on Earth but I also have been bitten by the travel bug. I still want to write a book, adopt more cats, own a home, and not a day goes by that I don't miss my grandparents terribly. I love food, photographs, the sun, and laughter.

And... there you have it. Me. :)

Linking up for today's blog post.
