Lately I have been thoroughly caught up in work and feel like my life has been consumed by my passion for what I do…..but today I felt like I wanted to share a little more about my world with you my loyal blogstalkers. I have been beyond blessed with the people in my life and the support system I have as I ventured into this new chapter of Crissy’s Crazy Chronicles. And I want to take a moment to address my loyalest of all blogstalkers….my parents.
You know when you are young it feels like your parents can be a royal pain in the you know what, but as you get older you realize they just wanted to help make you a better person in the long run. My hat is off to these two people who had to deal with the drama a crazy teenage girl can present during those years, but even amongst my teenage anguish *lol* I realized that no matter what I said or did that my parents were biggest and craziest supporters. Even when I decided to change from the medical path to the arts path they stuck by me…took a little time for the idea to marinate since I was their only child, but they still stuck by me. All I have done in this life and what I aspire to do stems from the need to make my parents proud and reassure them that even without a owner’s manual they were the best parents I could have asked for.
My family may be small, but what we lack in numbers the three of us make up for with BIG personalities. My dad of course with his sense of humor which includes jokes made up especially for you on a moment’s notice and his humongous heart….this man would give you the shirt off of his back if you asked. I have never met anyone else like him in this world, so insanely smart (not one but TWO engineering degrees), generous to a fault, kind, HILARIOUS, and overall just a wonderful human being. My mom on the other hand is not exactly the loudest of our bunch, she is more demure when you first meet her, but don’t let that fool you she too is a character who can make you laugh with her witty comebacks. She is my definition of elegance and class. She is a passionate woman who loves with all of her heart….something very few do, and is fiercely loyal to her family… just don’t mess with her baby and things will be ok *lol*. She has seen me through all of my stages, my moods, and antics, and although the road has not always been silky smooth (for goodness sake we are women!), when it is all said and done we are each other’s best friend. So all that I am today as this zany girl who wants creative world domination I owe to my parents….distance may be between us in miles, but our hearts are always together.
Here is a recent series of shots that we took at a festival….ok total proof that my family is as nutty as me. My parents were obsessed with this pineapple stand, do not ask my why I have NO idea *lol*. So of course we took pictures with the pineapples courtesy of Marcus who gladly volunteered to take our picture. *LOL* They so crack me up!
