I’m a stay-at-home-mom with two kids – Jack (4) and Claire (1).  I’m in my mid-thirties (and, I admit it was kind of shocking to type that out – my mid-thirties…what!?!?).

I blog because I like to write, and also because I think it's important -  it’s amazing to go back and read through posts from a few years (or months!) ago and see how much things have (or have not!) changed.

met my husband in Las Vegas when I was 21 (way back in 1999 – practically before technology, and way before Pinterest), and a few years later we moved to Texas.

And by Texas, I mean out in the country – which was often awesome , except that we lived in a house that was (no joke!) infested with scorpions and brown recluse spiders (scorpions are very hostile and unpleasant…brown recluse spiders, luckily, are not).  I have pictures.  But I don’t want to scare anyone away, soooo….click at your own risk!  And know that there’s more where that came from.

I am a horse-lover through and through, and own a Connemara pony named Seamus.  Who I haven’t ridden in four years.  

Also?  I love cloth diapers, iced tea, books (real ones, with pages) and yoga.  And I believe in kindness and equality and tolerance and love.
