Hi there! My name is Tanya. I was born back in 1980-something in Canada and my family moved around a decent amount until 1996 when we landed in North Carolina. I still live in central NC and wouldn’t dream of living anywhere else — we’ve got mountains, lakes, AND beaches! It was here that I met, fell in love with, and married the man of my dreams. We now have two beautiful little girls and a dog. Life keeps us pretty busy. And I’ve got my hands full getting to be home with my kids and try to keep things from getting too chaotic.
Life has had its ups and downs and presented us with struggles we never thought we’d endure. We are learning and growing and it’s an amazing ride. But in the midst of all that, it becomes easy to lose yourself and begin to feel overwhelmed. So that is why I’ve started this blog — to keep ahold of what I enjoy doing to maintain a level of sanity and share with others who enjoy the same things. Some of those things are reading, cooking and baking, quilting and sewing, painting, scrapbooking, and most recently, gardening. I also tend to spend *some* time on Pinterest and some time just trying to be crafty.
I hope that you enjoy time spent here reading about what is going on in this Mom’s life: the ups, the downs, and even the backtracking.
