All About Me

A good friend and I were recently trying to come up with 5 word descriptions of people we know.  Here's mine:

Busy, surprisingly crunchy, super mom. 

I have four kids, so I  am obviously busy.  That one was easy.  The surprisingly crunchy part comes as a shock to most people.  Guess I don't seem that way. 

But then most people are shocked to find out I have a tattoo too. 

I lost my father to lung cancer in 2011, my mother to diabetes in 2013. I write about them. A lot.

I have suffered from post partum depression, and live every day with anxiety and PTSD. I am active in EMDR therapy, and I write about that too.

I'm a doula.  I have milk delivered straight from a dairy and buy most of my summer produce at farmer's markets.  I'd have a garden if my poorly behaved dog wouldn't eat it all.   I make almost all of our meals from scratch.  We make our own beer, even.  I secretly long for a clothesline.

I love organization, though my home is a journey in chaos.  I love photography, though I rarely have a chance to take pictures of anyone or anything but my children. 

I'm writing four books, and have been a contributor to two that are published already.  Then there is the matter of this whole blog thing.  I blame you, Blythe.  I blame you. 

In my past life, I was an aspiring attorney.  I over analyze everything.

I've been down an interesting path in life, one which involves a high school sweetheart, cancer, several stalled careers, a few major tragedies and four amazing kids. 

I have awesome friends.  I have a crazy family, whom I adore completely.  And if you aren't nice to me, I'll write about you. 

So be nice.
