Today is my SITS day!
For those of you who don’t know, thesitsgirls.com is an amazing community of over 40,000 women bloggers. Every day they feature a blogger and today is my day! So a warm welcome to anyone new visiting today. I hope you will stop by often! And a warm welcome too for all those regulars that support me with their comments and THEIR amazing blogs!
I have been so blessed since I started blogging and have found such incredible support and deepened so many relationships! There are so many reasons why I blog, and you can read about them here.
I blog mainly about the ins and outs of our journey as a blended family. I love to talk about motherhood and stepmotherhood, both roles that I love and am honoured to fill. But both roles are challenging, maddening, and a load of fun. I have two boys biologically (10 and 11), and three skids (stepkids) – two stepsons (7 and 14) and one stepdaughter (11), so we are never short on drama and adventure around here. My kids are sassy, funny, creative and smart and they make me laugh all the time. They make me cry too – I’m not ashamed to say I’ve cried many tears of exasperation and frustration. However, I do tend to share the rosier side of things – only because it helps me to SEE the rosier side of things.
I have been married for 5 years to an incredible man, who truly is the love of my life. It just took us the long, windy, back road way of finding each other. But we found each other, and this third force of ours is pretty darn precious.
I am also a career gal (work as a Speech Language Pathologist in private practice) and a travel nut. I love to travel and am either planning the next trip or on it! I also love a good book, a great beach (oops, that’s travel again, no?), some trash TV, financial stuff, sushi dates, traditions, a great quote, and an organized home (ok – that’s my ideal.) We are a family of faith and I love anything that feeds my spiritual soul.
So take a look around and I hope that we can become blogger pals!
