Hi! Who am I…hmm. I wear the many hats of a freelancer. In business, I am a writer, and I also do voice overs. I was a TV and radio reporter, and an associate producer before becoming a mom. I am the mother of 2 boys. I am married to my mister right, who I met on an airplane. I was born and raised in the United States and am a dual citizen with the Island of Malta. (Lot’s of yummy Maltese recipes to share.)
My love of travel, architecture, and decor lead me into all things renovation and vintage. So much so, that my husband and I purchased a diamond in the rough as our family home. Apparently, Pinterest and my experience redoing small pieces of furniture made me think I could take on an entire house remodel. 16 rooms! That led to renovating an RV and taking it across America (which you can read about on this blog). We also bought a beach house on Tybee Island that we renovated and rent out! (You can read about that here too.)
I am truly excited! The idea to blog came while on one of our adventures. While out there exploring with my husband and two children, I had the overwhelming feeling that I just did not want that moment to end. The thought of returning to normal life just felt unnatural. You see when I met my husband and fell in love with him, I thought that getting married would make us see each other all of the time. Nope. He works hard and when he comes home from work we don’t have that much time to hang out. I try to fill our weekends with fun but we also have to catch up on household work etc. You know, life. Then I had babies, and I knew that one day they would grow up and start school, but wow that happened fast. Who knew that the three people that I love the most in life would be away from me more waking hours of the day than not. To me this just feels unnatural. I want my three favorite people around me. Don’t get me wrong. I like a break here and there. However, wouldn’t it be nicer if the breaks from those that we loved were short and the time we spent together was longer.
After the end of every happy weekend and vacation, I get so sad at the thought of family time being over and the knowledge that we will all separate into our own lives. I thought that maybe, just maybe, if I made a blog and put my focus into this, well maybe this would take off. Maybe I would get followers and advertisers and maybe I would become one of those people who get to live off of what they make from writing a blog. Then maybe that way I could pack up and travel the world with my 3 favorite people. So how about it world. Are you with me as I try to take off on this adventure? Are you with me as this mommy tries to slow down time, as I try to take my husband and children out of the rat race, as I try to make our lives an adventure and not just doing it the way we are “supposed to” ? Here we go.This is my blog.
