In which I talk about myself…
Ive been meaning for a while now to write a post sharing who I really am with you guys. I never really had a very good about me post, so this is the remedy. 😉 Those of you who are following this blog and commenting I LOVE YOU! 🙂 I love every comment and try to reply either by email or in the comment. I appreciate all of my subscribers, whether youre lurking or not.
Me, Me, Me
My name is Lindsey (also called Lindz or Linds) and I live in the gorgeous but sometimes-too-rainy Pacific Northwest. I met my gamer/computer-nerd/musician future husband here and weve been happily married for five years.
After three years of marriage, we were blessed with a baby girl! Oh, I was so thrilled. You see, I was diagnosed with endometriosis after I got married suddenly I realized I might have trouble having a baby. But God gave me a child, and Im so thankful. I really wanted a girl but had told God that I wouldnt mind a boy if he was like my husband. When I found out I was having a girl, I was so relieved! I grew up with one sister so I know nothing about boys, lol.
Anyway, Emma is 19 months now and were currently going through the terrible twos.
Now I know what all the moms were crying and gnashing their teeth over talking about *shudder*
I work at home as a medical transcriptionist part time my husband is a computer programmer. We live in an apartment (groan). I daily remind my husband that our goal is to have a house with a yard, especially now that Emma is getting to the point where she needs more exercise.
I love pretty much anything craft-related. I never seem to stick to one thing but have craft supplies scattered everywhere! Im an avid reader of all kinds of literature and yes, I have read Jane Austen. And Charlotte Bronte. 😉 I love cooking, but dont love cleaning up after myself. I love coffee (Starbucks is heaven!), expensive dark chocolate, and chocolate-covered coffee beans. 😉
Im imperfect, but happily loved by my family and my God. I believe in the bible and in an all-powerful God whose grace is given freely to anyone who believes He is God and truly desires to have a relationship with Him. Im so thankful to have Him in my life, and Im thankful that He loves and accepts me despite my mistakes. Its hard to keep your focus right when youve got a toddler demanding your attention 24/7 lol.
About Kindred Spirit Mommy:
I was originally inspired by Anne to go with the kindred spirit theme you have read Anne of Green Gables by L.M. Montgomery and the rest of the series, havent you? I hope so, because if you havent youre missing out! Anne of the Island is my absolute favorite in the series.
Anyway, I feel that all mommies are kindred spirits, so thats why I decided to go with Kindred Spirit Mommy. Im a mommy, for sure, and all of my thoughts and feelings (and blog posts) are coming from the heart of a mom of a precocious toddler. I have enjoyed meeting kindred spirits through this blog and the blogosphere and love sharing new and cool family products that make life easier. Its even better when I can offer giveaways to my readers! I also share recipes, host a creative moms blog hop, and blog pretty much whatever inspires me.
How about you? Feel free to share a little bit about yourself with me! Maybe youve been a long-time reader but havent really said much, or maybe youve just discovered my blog. I would love to hear from you and visit your blog as well!
