All About Me

I have been a blogger since 2006 with a 3 year hiatus between 2011 and 2014.  You will only see archives from November 2009, however.  I am actually quite mad at myself for deleting hundreds of posts at the end of October.  You see, my ex-husband and I went through some rough years of infertility treatments, including a miscarriage and a life threatening reaction to fertility drugs.  After I had my twins in October, I couldn't even visit my blog or the blogs of my friends without crying.  Balling, actually, for hours.  I regret not capturing those posts before deleting them even though it pained me so badly. 

I felt like I needed to distance myself from the world that hurt so badly.  I felt really guilty because I had what every one in that world (infertility) was trying to achieve.  I was very conflicted.  I miss all of the people that supported me during our struggle and I miss being able to be there for them.  I am just now getting back in touch with some of them. 

My ex-husband and I lost one another somewhere along the way and we divorced in 2013.  We have a really great co-parenting relationship and this benefits the twins greatly.  My husband and my ex get along well and I couldn't ask for better parents for the girls.

I love to garden.  I look forward to making a great garden in my new home next year.  This year, the focus has been on remodeling the inside of our house. UPDATE: our new home has a green house!

I love to play my violin.  I have played since I was in 4th grade.  Eight years ago I sought out to join our local symphony orchestra and made it.  To get paid to do something I love is a little weird, but I am not complaining!
