Hi there!

I'm so glad you decided to stop by and check out my blog.

In a nutshell, I'm a thirty-something wife and mommy. I struggled with infertility and fibroids for several years before conceiving my beautiful baby boy,and documented the latter part of that journey in my blog, Ova-EZ. Now that I'm a baby mama, I'm writing about all things mommy here in the 'hood.

Please feel free to go back and read through the posts on my old blog. I'm doing the mommy thing now but I never want to forget the road that brought me to this point, or the lessons I learned along the way. Hopefully something I've written may help someone else feel a little less alone.

And now, since we just met, here are some things you may not know about me:

1. I'm a HUGE Twilight fan. But who isn't?

2. I'm an author. No, the book hasn't been published but I wrote it. So, yes. I AM AN AUTHOR.

3. I'm a huge believer in "Name It & Claim It." (Hence, #2 on this list.)

4. I'm ambidextrous. Not only can I write with both hands, but I can also write backwards.

5. Sometimes I dance when I eat.

6. I studied Latin for 6 years. Yes, LATIN.

7. I have an eidetic (photographic) memory for faces and words, and I can spell like nobody's business.

8. Haiku is one of my favorite forms of poetry.

9. I was dropped on my head as a baby and given my last rites. (Hence #4, 5 & 7? Maybe. It's anybody's guess.)

10. I have 8 brothers & sisters.

My "blotto" (that's blog motto - I know, I'm always making up new words) is "You Follow Me, I Follow You." So please join my site and I'll join yours. Then we can all sit in one big bloggy circle and sing Kumbayah.

Ok, I'm getting carried away, but you get the picture.

I love commenting back and forth, so if any of my posts speaks to you, please feel free to sound off in the comments section. And if you've got a button you'd like featured on my blog, just let me know and I'll grab it up.

Welcome to the 'hood.
