I talk too much. Truth be told, I’m happier when my mouth is shut and my pen is flowing cursively across the page. (Or my fingers are tapping out my thoughts on a keyboard.) And so, this is my return to writing. I’m a daughter, sister, wife, mother, writer, editor, blogger, tweeter, chauffeur, organizer, planner, dreamer, friend, and sometimes, I’m me.
And “me” is a busy mom running ragged and trying to keep up, who blogs about trying to be the mom and person she wants to be even on the days when the world forces her to admit that she can only be who she is.
What will you find on my blog? A little bit of everything. I swear I suffer from attention deficit disorder. I can’t focus on writing about just one thing, so you’ll find a little bit of everything here.
I love writing about food because it’s all about the journey for me. (I used to hate cooking and baking or anything else to do with the kitchen for that matter. Now, I’m the chef in the family!) I also write about my kids and motherhood. There again, it’s all about the journey. I enjoy supporting and writing about things that I believe in, so sometimes you might find a review or an article about something that has appealed to me in some way.
Oh, and the reason my blog is called Life Takes Over…I met my husband long before we were an item and then we met again and became an item years later. I had been through some adult, responsibility-bearing experiences and kept trying to convince him that life takes over, whether we want it to or not. He was (and still is) a free spirit and believed that it didn’t have to be that way. When I started writing again, he suggested Life Takes Over as a name for my blog.
I hope you join me on my journey as life takes over.
