My name is Alicia. I was born, and raised, in Utah. I have a very large family. I'm the oldest of 5 children, all the younger ones are boys. I'm also the oldest of 27 grandchildren, on my mothers side alone. Yea, we're freakin' huge.
I lived in California for 2 years after I met my husband and I decided that I'd drag him back to Utah with me so that I could be closer to my family. The bonus is that he didn't much care for California so he was happy to get out.
I was raised in a very religious household. My mothers parents were converts to the LDS Church and, every Sunday that I can remember, we went to Church. Yes, I am Mormon. No, I haven't been to Church in a long time. Why? Well, that would fall into the "divulging too much" category. I will say, however, I have a very strong belief in the Church. With all my heart, I know it's true. Too much?
My political views are most closely related to THIS!
I'm married and have been for nearly 3 years now. My husband, TJ, is the love of my life. I met him in 2003 in a Yahoo! chat room. If you weren't able to add that up, we were together 6 yrs before we got married. We both have commitment issues. OK, not really, but we had a lot of expectations for our wedding but finally realized they didn't matter. Us getting married is what mattered. I couldn't imagine my life without him. When he was 7 yrs old he was hit by a car and it took off his left leg, at the ankle. Through a series of events his leg is now amputated above the knee. Thankfully, that doesn't stop him from doing anything he wants to do.
So, in a very large nutshell, this is me. This is my life. Welcome to it.
