Welcome to My Corner of the World

I hope you find humor, inspiration and something worthwhile on this blog. I plan to be as candid as possible. Life is hard. I know, I've overcome a lot (and still have a way to go).
It doesn't help others if the rough things are glossed over.

I will no doubt fill this blog with stories of my achievements as a mom as well as my personal struggles.

I have an incredible husband whom I call "my sanity." I have two great kids with strong personalities. I struggle with anxiety and depression and I have had a colorful childhood.

I also have an addiction to Gilmore Girls, A&W Cream Soda, and Starbucks peppermint mocha.
I have recently added biking to my list of hobbies and also love to read, knit, and play tennis.

Welcome to my little corner of the world!

The Family

  I love being a SAHM!
  Here's a small introduction to the whole family...

  The Hubby is a hard worker and a great dad.  He is an engineer and enjoys what he does.  I'm so thankful that he is able to support our family so that I can stay home with the kiddos and that he likes what he does!  It seems rare these days to have both of those things.

  A is my emotional little girl!  She is great at giving hugs, loves to paint and write.  She can sit and read a book for hours on end and likes her personal space.  Pink is her favorite color and she loves nail polish and picking berries from our bushes!  She loves Mommy and A time so we can do girly things (play dollies, color or go to the park).

  Bug is very much a boy.  He's 4 and is pretty physical.  He loves to antagonize A and he likes to run and play more than he likes to sit still!  He's content to color for a few minutes, but he soon turns the crayons into torpedoes and throws them all over the place.

  Then there's me!  You can read all about my likes on my welcome note and you can read about my background on the "my story" page.
