Welcome readers to my Blog ! I hope to give you a little in-site to the Woman behind the words. I was born to Stan and Rosie, in Rota, Spain, where my Mother is from. I was given the name Natalia. I come from a military background, my father use to be in the Navy. Having a father from Iowa( Luxembourg ancestry) and a mother from Spain, I was predisposed to universal thoughts from the onset. People are people no matter what country they reside in. They may have different customs, traditions or language, but the fundamental needs are all the same in each and every country and person.
I graduated from high school in Spain and went on to college. I took classes in Spain, my parents were still residing overseas when I decided to see what being independent meant. (I was 20 at the time). In Europe it is custom for children to live at home passed the age of 18. I’m Sure my father and mother had different views on that one! My father would always tell me I live a sheltered life, so I wanted to check it out, experience what that meant. To experience the big world on my own, the transition was different and the concept was kind of hard to wrap my mind around. I had been with my family for 20 years of my life and now I was on my own, well not entirely. I moved to the US, Jacksonville, Florida where I was roommates with my friend Danny. My dad had a friend from Spain who lived in Jacksonville as well, Nick(his family, Peggy, ,Jeff, and Robin ) they became my extended family. They were an enormous support group, and my 2nd friends.
I have not completed my education for my BA, or higher, but I would like to. I have traveled cross-country through out the US and just like John Melincamp sings ” ain’t that America, something to see baby”. We in the US have a beautiful country, so we need to defend its beauty.
I like to reserve some privacy, but for the most part, I am fairly open and opinionated.
