Jena Renae

November 6th, 1984 was not only an important day in history because I was born =D, but also, because on that day, Ronald Reagan was re-elected to serve as President of the United States of America for another 4-year term. Mom would always remind me on my birthday every year, that she remembers lying in the hospital bed holding me and watching the election results on television.

Some other interesting facts about the year of my birth…
