Once upon a time, I wrote a novel. In a Hello Kitty notebook with colored pages. It was pretty terrible, but had a beginning, middle, and end, and it was the start of something in my life. I’ve been telling stories ever since.
This blog is a collection of stories. Stories of parenting failures as I spend time with my three little ones, small kitchen fires as I create recipes in the kitchen, DIY stories as we update our home, roller derby stories straight from the track, and faith stories about the real and honest way Jesus intersects with my messy life. Will you sit and read for a while? For more on me and my writing in other places, click the About Me tab.
[You may or may not have come from I Still Hate Pickles, the blog I began writing when I was pregnant for the first time. Things have changed a lot in my life and on the site, and this move reflects that. The design is still under construction, so bear with the changes in the coming month. I'm happy you're here and hope you stick around for a read. If you want to get to know me and the last five years, check out I Still Hate Pickles, which will remain up but closed for comments as a kind of archive to our life with kids.]
