I am a lot of things. I am a smart-ish lady. I am a wife. I am a in my 30s. I am a mama. I am an artist. I am a writer. I am an amateur competitive baker. I am a hobby gardener. I am a poet. I am a fitness coach. I don't want what I write to be about just one of those things. It needs to be about all of those things and a million others to be about me. And over the life of this blog I want to tell you about my experiences as all of those things together. We may have a lot in common.
I started blogging, well, before it was actually blogging, starting with livejournal and on to zynga and myspace. The truth is, I just like to write. I don't much care what it's about. And I don't care if no one reads it, or likes what I'm writing. I hope you do. I really do. But I can't make everyone happy.
I want to tell you about the things I do with my family. I want to tell you about crafts and recipes and home care tips and how it is I keep from going crazy every day. I want to tell you about all the things that are important to me, from humanitarian issues to TV shows to running shoes (I prefer new balance 574's). I want to help anyone I can. And I want to tell my story.


  1. Found your blog from the 30 Days of Thanks! I love that you had a zynga before you had a real blog! Ha, I did too! So great to find your blog!

    1. I'm glad you came by!
      It's so funny now to think of the "bloggy" online communities that came around before...we were probably all floating around on one of them at some point!
