About Me

I'm Heidi, nice to meet you!  Let me tell you a little about myself . . .

First off, you should know that I'm a chocoholic -

Once when I was little, my mom was making kiss cookies.

She got a phone call, turned her back, and next thing you know, the cookies were kiss-less and I was drooling chocolate down my chin.  That pretty much sums it up right there.

I also love "I Love Lucy"

I mean, what's not to love?  It seems we have a lot in common.

I'm also a bookworm.  Time does not exist for me when I'm reading.  And sometimes my non-fiction life doesn't either.  My husband complains about that.

I'm a complete history geek (I used to teach high school history and government), so I was in heaven when we visited Washington, D.C. this past summer.  That's me right smack dab in the middle of the city!

Who are the other two you might ask?  The man standing next to me is Dave, my wonderful husband.  We've been married a little over two years, and even though we're both freakishly competitive, we love each other more than winning . . . most of the time.  Except for during water fights, when we're pretty brutal.

And the little beauty in my arms, that's my baby girl, Kate.  She came into our lives almost a year ago and we feel so blessed to be the parents of such a beautiful and loving little princess.  She can also be rather feisty, loves when I share any sort of sweet with her, and has a crush on Curious George.

Pretty cute if I do say so myself.

Anyway, I'm just your average stay-at-home mother, trying to keep it all together - and I usually do, even though there might be oatmeal on my shirt, a mess in my front room, and bags under my eyes.  I love my family, I'm committed to them, and I'm trying to make our family life the best it can be.

So come in and sit down, stay awhile, and please, introduce yourself.  I can't wait to get to know you!
