Since this is one of my first posts, I thought I’d come up with a few random facts to help you get to know me. You can learn more about me and why I started this blog here, and if you have time, feel free to send me a note. I’d love to hear from you!
I’M AN INTROVERT. I’ve always been on the quiet side and I’d rather stay home most nights than go to one social event after another. That’s not to say I don’t enjoy a good party sometimes, but I usually prefer the company of a few close friends to a large crowd.
I HAVE A MASTER’S DEGREE. I work part-time as a School Psychologist, mainly doing assessments for children who are experiencing learning or behavioural challenges.
I HAVE FIVE BROTHERS. I’m the second-oldest (and the only girl) and I spent a lot of time babysitting my younger brothers while we were growing up.
I’M MARRIED TO MY HIGH SCHOOL SWEETHEART. My husband and I started dating in 10th grade and broke up when we started university. We stayed friends for over ten years before we got back together. One year later, we were married with our son on the way.
WE ELOPED. My husband and I got married in Paris with the only guests being our photographers. We kept it a secret and surprised our family and friends by throwing a reception party on New Year’s Eve.
I’M A MORNING PERSON. I’m often awake before the kids and I love the feeling of having the whole day in front of me. This also means I’m pretty much ready for bed as soon as the kids go down. My husband enjoys watching movies in the evenings but I can never stay awake to see one to the end.
OUR TWINS WERE A SURPRISE. There’s no history of twins in either side of the family and we were shocked when we found out we were having two babies instead of one!
I HAVE A MAJOR SWEET TOOTH. My favourite foods are ice cream and anything chocolate.
I DON’T COOK. My husband enjoys it and does most of the cooking in our household. I do like baking and enjoy making things like muffins, cupcakes, and cookies with the kids (see above).
HOME IS NEAR THE OCEAN. We live 5 minutes from the Atlantic Ocean and 25 minutes from the nearest beach. I try to spend as much time as possible there during the summer.
