After high school, I went to UF.  I only survived one year.  The summer after that, I ran into a marine that I had been on a blind date the year before.  No sparks or anything on the first date but this time around it was different.  We eloped Oct. 1995.  Since he was a marine, I have been able to see the country.  We have lived in S. Carolina,  Indiana,  Tampa, California, and currently in Missouri.  We are trying to get back to California by the end of the year.  We have 4 kids: Anaya 9/23/96, Annalise 4/13/99, John 9/27/02, and Stephen 11/26/07.  I have been a stay-at-home mom for awhile.  I also have been homeschooling for 5 years.  It has been fun and interesting.  Drop me a line, love to hear from you.

Class of 1994 - I hope all is well!!!  I am sorry that I did not make it to the 10 year class reunion.  However, I did get an update from Carrie "Hollowell" Hammock, who attend and it sounds like everyone had a great time.  Tara Lane and are hoping to see everyone at the next one.  In 1995, I was in a trouble car accident that took several years for me to recover and will deal with it for the rest of my life but I am still here and that is all that matters.  In 1998, I bought my first home and other than that, I have just been working since high school.  I have been in the finance industry for 11 years now and for the past 6, I have been employed with National Auto, A GMAC Financial Services Company.  I have never been married and no children as of yet but I am hoping for both one day.    Congratulations to everyone who has gotten married and/or have children.  Please feel free to e-mail if you would like to chat.  Take care.
