The SITS girls – Keeping Friendships Alive
Posted: February 21, 2012 Filed under: Working Mom
Hey! Hello everyone! I am so excited to have the SITS girls coming over to visit my site today! I love making new friends and introducing old friends to new ones…so for those friends who read my blog regularly, click on the SITS buttons either here in this post or on my sidebar to investigate. And if you are stopping over from the SITS site, welcome!
Today is my SITS day!
I haven’t been blogging for too long, you could say I’m still getting my sea legs. But I get a lot out of the SITS site and I LOVE all of the bloggers I have discovered there! And of course, I can’t WAIT to get to BLOGGY BOOT CAMP this spring in Philadelphia!
In keeping with tradition, I’d like to share a little about myself with you. I would love it if you’d do the same with either a comment here or a post on facebook!
My husband and I have 4 wonderful children – one boy and 3 girls. Two of them are in college (OMGosh), and one is a high school senior and one is a freshman. I was fortunate enough to be a “mostly” stay-at-home mom when the kids were little (not counting the in-home daycare, the half-day preschool teaching, and the Pampered Chef and Discovery Toys businesses…). But when my youngest was in first grade, I really wanted to go back to college. SO I DID!!

In 2009 I received my bachelor’s degree in Art History with a minor in Computer Design. I have a number of favorite art periods but my biggest interest is in the psychology behind the art of the 20th century. Particularly the first half of the century. I could go on but I don’t want to scare anyone away…
My hobbies include painting, drawing, and sculpting, hiking, reading, cooking, and eating (just joined weight watchers this week, right before I took a long five-day car trip… not sure that was too smart, I GAINED weight my first week, LOL). I could probably name a bunch more interests that I LOVE but I don’t do them regularly. I’ve been known to hyperventilate while driving past yard sales, and swoon while in craft stores.

, like the secret that my grown-up friends don’t even know about me. Not even my oldest friend.
I have an amazing hubby, great friends, and great kids, and I’d be lost without them all. I work full time for a school district, and I love to promote the importance of art in education. I also volunteer in a number of community groups, but online I am also a member of a blogging family named Bloggers in God
(the BIG sisters) and I’m also a guest writer for Your Thriving Family
, while blog host Sara is on maternity leave!
I would love it if you checked out their sites!
Finally, I am a Christian, who is learning slowly to share her faith. I have always tried to quietly share love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control*, but now I’m trying to be more vocal about it!
Welcome! I’m so glad you stopped by! And please, come back again to share some thoughts, some recipes or crafts, or just a hello.
