I'm a wife, mom, writer, reader, blogger, and coffee enthusiast. I started my blog in 2015 after I lost my job as a high school teacher. I was suddenly a stay-at-home with a 9 month old and very little adult human interaction. I started my blog as a way to communicate with grown people and share my ups and downs with people in similar situations. It's been a wonderful outlet over the last several years and I'm so grateful for the opportunities and friendships it has provided for me. Writing my blog helped me to realize just how much I love writing. In the last couple of years, I've been working on a fantasy novel, creating my own world and the rules and lives therein. It's so much fun! But long form writing takes a lot more focus than blogging, so progress is pretty slow. I only make serious progress when I leave my kids with my husband and run away to Starbucks for a few hours.
