Nice to meet you

funny. crass. loving. passionate. honest. struggling. foodie. wannabe food photographer. loyal. mom. wife of a hero. sister. friend. auntie.

I love cheesecake. I effing rock at making a chocolate ganache so good, you’ll shamelessly lick the bowl.

I love Christ with all my soul. Except in an institutional church. Never there.

My husband’s smell is the most comforting scent ever inhaled. I’m wildly in love with him, when I don’t have strong urges to punch him in the throat. There is no person I’d rather have feelings of domestic violence towards.

We have great little tax deductions. I especially like them when they don’t interr… hang on a second…..

What was I saying? Oh yeah, the kids. They’re great.

Depression has been my biggest battle. I effing hate my synapses don’t work right. When its not breathing down my neck, I am quite the optimist.

Other than drugs and therapy, photography has given me the strength to fight the dark horse galloping behind me.

In all seriousness, I hope you find within this blog someone who is confidently flawed. Someone who stands for what is right, no matter the cost. A woman who is open and unafraid of baring her heart and struggles. Meet the mother who is working her ass off to be a good parent, educator and guiding force in the lives of her children. Say hello to the wife who after twelve years of marriage is seeking to be a better spouse. Welcome. I hope something said here touches your heart, makes you think, or gives you a little armor for your own battles. I would love to hear from you.

Cheers.

N.
