Let me introduce myself: My name is Natalie. I am a thirty-something year old wife and mother to two young boys. I enjoy date nights with my husband, wine tasting, cooking, and travelling. I am a woman of “to-do” lists and love to keep things neat and organized, like placing toys in an IKEA storage unit and labelling them accordingly. I love spending time with my kids and I live for weekends. Coffee is my greatest vice, partly because I love it and partly because I need it to keep going. I also think working out is the best therapy. I also enjoy exploring new restaurants, cafes and local boutiques. I have a Master of Arts degree in Political Science from the University of Windsor (2009).
I started this blog as a hobby while on bedrest during my second pregnancy and as a way to remain creative outside of the office and household. As writing has been a passion of mine for as long as I can remember, I am thrilled to share my experiences with you.
Please join me on this road of love and resilience; on the joys and sacrifice of motherhood; the balancing act of being a career-woman and a mom and my journey towards rediscovering myself.
