...if I'd not have gotten married and had babies....

I would have:

1. Sung backup for James Taylor (I would have found a way to MAKE THIS HAPPEN.  Still on my wish list...)
2. Worked a corporate job in NYC and lived in a loft apartment
3. Photographed for Nat'l Geographic
4. Moved to Nashville and become a country music star
5. Worked as a GO at Club Meds around the world
6. Wow... Club Med sounds mighty nice right now...
7. Played Elphaba in Wicked in London (dreamin' big here, folks)
8. Been a pro surfer.  No, I don't know how to surf, but I would have learned.  And I'd be a pro.
9. Become a personal trainer (still might)
10. Moved to South America and done... something... with my Spanish degree.

All that said, and all dreaming taken into consideration, I wouldn't change my life much now.  Sure, there are things I wish were different, but I cannot imagine life without a kind and supportive husband and three beautiful children.  They all hold such a piece of my heart and I would be completely incomplete without them. 
So maybe I won't ever be a pro surfer, but it doesn't mean I can't take surfing lessons.  I might never live in a penthouse apartment in NYC working a corporate job, but I can go visit (and then be grateful to leave the big city).  I might never be a country music star, but it doesn't mean I have to stop singing.  No, I'll never stop singing.
