* Ask Me How We've Come This Far; The Answer's Written In My Eyes. *

25 July
My name is Kelly but my friends call me Kels. I have 2 parents, 3 sisters [Trish, Lisa & Ash], 2 brothers [James & Rob], 5 nephews, 2 nieces & one niece/nephew on the way, 1 Grannie, two cats and one dog. I live in the *big city* of Thunder Bay, but my hometown will always be Marathon, where I was born and raised. On March 24th, 2003 I met the man I'm going to marry. My soulmate. We have an apartment together and two "babies" [cats] named Kaeyah & Sierra. My dog is a 5-year-old cocker spaniel named Riley. He lives with my Mom & Dad, but he will always be mine. :P My ears are pierced 12 times [6 times in each] and my belly button also as well too :P I have 2 tattoos and I want one more. I listen to music constantly. I like everything from country to hip-hop. My favorite singers are Mariah Carey, Whitney Houston & Celine Dion. I'd give anything to have a voice like they do. Nat and Colin are my best friends. No matter what we do, we always have fun together. I've known Nat for almost 10 years and without her, I honestly don't think I'd be where and who I am today. She can "read me like a book", hehe. She knows secrets no one else knows and won't ever find out! Colin is one of the smartest guys I've ever known. He's always there to listen and he knows exactly what to say to make me feel better. I'm also very close with Crystal [I'm going to be a bridesmaid in her wedding this summer :D], Val, who I met while working at YA Canada [a call center.. yuck..] and Tammy who I've known since grade school! [She's getting married too!] I am full-time salesperson at Cotton Ginny Plus.

This journal is about the goings-on in my abnormally normal life. Please respect me and the things I write about. Thank-you, and enjoy! :)

"I stand before you,
My heart is in your hands,
And I dont know how
I'd survive without your kiss
Cuz you've given me
A reason to exist.."

I <3 you babe... :)

From the bottom of the soles of my feet
To the top of my head.
From the inside out
And outside in.
I love you

As far as the stars do shine
As long as the sun keeps rising
Or falling below the horizon
As deep as the Universe goes
I love you

As wide as my smile
Even when its upside-down
Inside each tear
Through each fear
I love you

Every moment of everyday
To the end of time
From the beginning
Until the finish line
I love you
