Once Upon a Time...

I just laid my little boy (14 month old, to be exact) down for his nap. I check Westly on the video monitor—isn’t modern baby technology great these days? If I’m lucky, he’ll sleep for about 3 hours.

I sit down on the couch with my mini laptop. Now is my time. My time to visit with some familiar friends, and explore places far from home, and take control of some situations…for once.

It’s time to write.

Welcome to my life as a full-time wife and mom…

…moonlighting as a writer.

Here you’re privy to not only the ins-and-outs of a stay-at-home mom, but also the inner musings of an author. Before committing, thought, please beware of the warnings on the label:

Warning: I’m not a perfect wife/mom, and neither are my sentence structures

Warning: my days are probably just as chaotic as yours, and so are my plots

Warning: my life is full of quirky characters, and so are my stories

So why should you read this blog?

Well, I hope to inspire and encourage you to pursue your interests and carve out time for your talents. And if nothing else, maybe you’ll be entertained for a few minutes a day.

So here we go. Once upon a time…
