Hi everyone! My name is Donna Gargett. Or as my daughter likes to say "introducing.....Donnaaaa Gargettttt!!!! I am totally in love with my family. I have a 2 year-old, Ava, and a three year- old, Bella, who are at the center of my heart. But I wouldn't have this loving family if it wasn't for my husband David who shares the same fun loving spirit I do. I always tell my husband I never know what to say to the women that complain about their husbands, I just can't relate.
I grew up in California, but have been more at peace in North Carolina. When I told my friend I moved again she told me that my life was far from boring. After getting my BA in psychology I worked as a case manager for mental health. I was touched by the struggles I saw other people endure and tried to assist them any way I could by providing resources that they could not provide for themselves. As my "clock"started ticking I thought my career should take a turn so I could start a family, so I became a Director at a private day school. I was able to take my daughter with me and daycare was much more affordable. So with every move it is hard to maintain the same position, but I am still struggling with finding the right job for me and my family.
I have dabbled in a lot of extra curricular activities before having children such as; completing two marathons, salsa dancer, published a poem, wrote for a LA magazine, sold oil paintings and had my own exhibit. I am looking to get back to some of my creative joys which includes writing. I thought this would be a great way to combined my two loves; my family and writing in a blog.
