Where Whine Meets Wine

Hello world!

on March 7, 2011

Well, here it is, my first post. I’ve had ideas running in my head about what I would say for MONTHS… and now that I’m here, well, let’s just say I’m tempted to hit save and wait until probably 3am when I remember all the things I WANTED to say! Since I can’t remember all the life changing information I was going to give you, I guess I’ll just describe what I envision this blog to be.

I have lots of stories in my life.  Stories about the touching moments my kids share with me on a daily basis. Hilarious moments that I share with them on an even more frequent basis.  Stories about life as a wife of a man you’ve known for almost half your life. Stories about the battle between being a stay at home mom while still being an individual with thoughts, dreams, and friends separate from the mommy version. Stories about falling asleep in a text book because I can’t bear to take away time from the kids to do my studying; while still believing it’s important to have dreams of my own and to follow them. Stories about food, cooking, eating… and reasons why I eat and cook the way I do. I’m also hoping for recipes. Easy, delicious, family friendly, healthy recipes. Things I make or want to make and would actually feed to my family. You know, the kind of food you would still eat, even if no one else was watching. (like the gluten free, homemade version of Samoa’s I’m current making…. or the maple syrup ham I’ve got in the crock pot so that my family has something to eat while I go out for a girls’ night.) And while I don’t know that any one particular vein or “category” of these stories will be the center of my blogs, I do know that they will all be a part of it.

So if you’re looking for a blogger who is not going to rave about baby’s first steps, the joy of long naps (and what you can accomplish during them!), or the hilarity you encounter during every day motherhood…I am not it. But if you’re interested in an ordinary woman who is busy raising 3 children under 4 years old, maintaining a marriage, with some sense of self and sanity…then maybe I’m that.
