Smile Hai from Florida.

If you live here, raise your hand if you're way excited about the amazing weather right now! *frantically raises hand*

Any how,
Hi there, I'm Audrey, sooner or later the Mister will create an account and get his butt around to introducing himself but for now, I'll chatter about us

First off, I'm 27, he's 37, we've been married for 9 years (10 in June) and it's been amazing. Okay, I lied. It's been work, it's been fun, it's been hard, it's been a journey, it's been a pain in my rump, my head, my heart and something I would never take back, despite what I mutter under my breath at times, ha.
We have a 6 year old who has us both tightly wrapped around those little fingers, she lights my life. God what a cheesy mushy sap I sound like thus far.
Alright, I'm into soap making and being as green as possible, I was green back when it was weird and cheap to make your own cleaners, hang your clothes out, cloth diaper and use cloth shopping bags, I'm finally normal!
My other love is body modification, if you're apposed them just stop now!
I have tattoos, piercings and dermal implants. Hubby has only tattoos.

Family is big to me.
We moved 5 years ago and this is as far as I've ever been from my Grandparents, I spent a lot of my time driving across the state to be with them and for about 4 years I was there more then I was here. My Great Grandmother is 94 years young, her Daughter is my mother figure and both are my idols (oh Christ, back to the sappy thing again?!)

Any how, I grew up being raised by my part time mom and step father, my maternal Grandparents and Maternal Great Grandmother, step Grandparents and even random family friends, needless to say my life didn't become traditional until I moved out, got married and had my own child.
Of course naturally family means the world to me, stability, love, and the whole "it takes a village" mentality is all me.
That's what brings me personally to my poly side.
I've always known I was meant to love more then one, I always felt that everyone was. Of course now as an adult I obviously understand that it's not for everyone.
I love bonds that only women can have, I've enjoyed this sisterhood feeling with the stable women in my life and it's something that can hardly be described, it has to be felt, at least to me.
(I don't want this to turn into a personal ad so I'll leave it there! I read the rules!)

Any how, we have a small zoo which is made up of 3 cats, 4 ferrets and one currently pink Chihuahua, we dig animals. More so the little person and I, the Mister tolerates them for our sake :P

We've recently become obsessed with geocaching!

Hrm, can't think of any more random facts......

If you have any questions just ask, I'm an open book

Welcome aboard.
When speaking of various forms of non-monogamy...it ain't poly if you're just fucking around.

While polyamory, open relationships, and swinging are all distinctly different approaches to non-monogamy, they are not mutually exlusive. Folks can, and some do, engage in more than one of them at a time--and it's all good.

Default I know it's a big state.. but if you're near Tampa...

This weather is why I moved to Florida. So gorgeous right now... makes up for the streak of 90 degree days this summer.

(I know, it's a long shot... ) http://www.polytampa.com/

The PolyTampa meeting is tonight at TGIFriday's on Fowler Avenue.
Come with no expectations, and you can learn a lot. This meeting tends to be a mix of old friends and newcomers. There's a big camping event, so attendance will be down.

I'll be there if you want someone to sit with... but this group is friendly to newcomers.

Here are the details (from the website):

The next PolyTampa meeting will be on Sunday, October 17th from 7 pm - 9 pm in the meeting room at TGI Friday's, 2501 E. Fowler Avenue, Tampa, FL 33612. This is across from the east end of University Square Mall. Food service starts at 6:30.

Meetings are held on the third Sunday of every month from 7-9 pm, barring a holiday, in which case they will be the following Sunday.

Been there done that, not going again. To much of the same stuff each month. 2 large groups who know it all. Not into debating all night.
