Hi there, my name is Stephanie (with a ph, because I’ve now come to realize that there are many different spellings out there). Thank you for entering my corner of the internet…I share it, mostly with three people; me, myself, and I. Ha. Gets a little crowded sometimes but usually we do just fine.
Joking, totally joking.
But, in real life, I am a 26-year-old wife and mother of two. I was married at 18 (whew, that’s a big subject), had my first baby at 24, and my second just a few weeks ago at 26. I’m coming up on 8 years of marriage this August to my husband Jeremy, my son (Zeke) just turned 2 in March, and my daughter (Cici) is three weeks fresh from the womb. And yes, even in the midst of all of that I am starting a blog. Why? Maybe because it’s what our generation does; blog about every teensie-weensie little detail of our ever perfectly staged lived. Or maybe it’s because I like to write….Because I’m going with honesty on this blog I’m going to have to say it’s the second. And although I do like to stage the occasional photo for my Instagram account, I’m much better at snapping a candid and adding a clever filter that adds a little color to my otherwise very normal life.
In all honesty, I have been thinking about writing again for sometime now. I have no idea why I chose the arrival of my second child as the perfect time to start, but whatever, I’m just going to go with it. You know what they say; ‘When creativity strikes’, or something like that…
So, I’m a wife, a mom, a writer; what else? Well, I love to craft. I’m very creative and dabble in just about every form of crafting known to man. (Okay, that was a slight exaggeration.) I think it’s because I get bored with things quickly. I took up quilting, leaned about it, bought all the stuff, did it, and then took up drawing. I have a HUGE pile of fabric in my basement, it’ll be turned into quilts, someday.
Well, I don’t want to bore you too much, so I’ll probably leave it at that for today.
More on life later.
