Who am I?

I am a wife & mother.  I write with ampersands.  I believe that people can change for the better.  I like to attention-whore out my life, invent curse words, & devour a plate of chocolate chip cookies in a single sitting.  I also have a habit of spilling coffee all over myself at inopportune moments.  I work for a social media agency (yes mom, that’s a real thing) & spend my evenings curled up with a good book & whisky, tapping out words from my heart.

aboutme11 Who am I?

I’ve been married to a devilishly handsome man for over seven years. His name is Doug.  Together we made a wild, persistent, incredible little boy.  His name is Harrison.

I tell him that golf is not an indoor sport & fruit snacks are not supper.  He disagrees.  My mother tells me that there is never an excuse to use the four-letter f-bomb.  I disagree.

The first time I was pregnant, I lost my baby at 12 weeks. Miscarriage is unfair, a gut-wrenching cruelty. I had an incredible second pregnancy, but I had severe postpartum depression after the birth of my son.  It was a terrifying time in my life.  I’m better now through modern chemistry.

Sometimes I’m funny & I talk about vaginas. Sometimes I get sad & talk about Zoloft & therapy. A lot of times I’m just a ball of random life. This is the place where I pour out every essence of me to the universe.

I am so glad you are here.  I hope you brought wine.

I love, love, LOVE your Meet BA page! It’s so nice to see a working mom who isn’t afraid to talk about real life (including wine, vaginas and f-bombs).

Amen. There needs to be more of it, in my opinion. Life is messy & real & I think blogs should reflect that.

I used to be on thebump.com with you back when you were Blair and I was KacieLeigh. I think Harrison was due around the same time as my oldest, Caroline. Either way, I stumbled across your blog today and thought I’d say hello – and throw in a quick “I (kinda) knew you back when…” just for fun. ;) Love your blog!
