Me, in a Nutcase

Pin It

The things that shape my life now:
I'm a thirty-something married woman.
I am a mother of three beautiful children.
As it happens I have a part-time, mostly from home job (some site visits required), and I am blessed to have a husband who supports my choice to be the 24 hour caregiver for our children, and who tolerates my less-than-stellar homemaking skills.

My interests are broad, but since having children, they have honed in on healthy living, parenting and homeschooling. 

I'm am happy to make "alternative" choices in life and parenting - "green" living, co-sleeping, cloth diapering, babywearing, extended breastfeeding... I am striving to be non-critical of others' parenting choices, and to support them in achieving the best relationship with their own child(ren), in alignment with their parenting choices.

Outside of that, I spend way too much time on my computer, when I could be pursuing other hobbies and interests, such as photography, sewing, quilting, geocaching, genealogy, gardening, and actual completion of projects around the house.

Things that shape who I have become:
First, I am a child of God, and follower of Christ.
I was born to great, hardworking parents - a nurse and a professional artist, and my brothers are kind of decent, for brothers. Actually, I love them a lot, even if I never tell them. My nieces and nephews are awesome.  I have a huge extended family.

I've always been an academic overachiever. I like to say that I'm an overachiever even with my blood type - A+
I am proud of having been valedictorian of my graduating high school class, and valedictorian of my college class.  Unfortunately, I let my academic prowess define myself, and still I am learning to live without that external validation. From a very young age, I have been interested in architecture, history and historic buildings.  In another life-path, I would have pursued additional education and employment in historic preservation of architecture. I used to live in an old house, but I'm kind of glad to be in a very new house now.  New isn't perfect, though, either.
