Blog Hop '10

If you're here from Robin's Blog Hop, welcome! If you just somehow randomly turned up here, welcome! If you're intentionally here, well, thank you--you're the best!

In order to keep this short (*ahem*, Robin!) I'll just give you the basics about me:

WHO am I? A mom of three daughters and wife to my college sweetie. I love to read, write, and travel. I formerly worked as an adjunct professor, a marketing professional, and a fundraiser. Even though I'm now considered a stay-at-home mom, I'm rarely here. I may be travelling. I may be speaking to a women's group. I may be attending a conference. But whatever I'm doing, I'm trying to do to the best of the abilities God has given me.

WHAT do I write about? Life. Travel. My family. Parenting. Cooking. Christianity.

WHERE do I live? In the Chicago suburbs. I love it here.

WHEN do I write? Mornings, usually. I don't do nights very well.

WHY is my Life on the Wild Side? I have three teenage daughters, need I say more? And one crazy dog. And my philosophy really is that "Every day is an adventure!"

So pull up a chair, sit a while, and join me on the journey. I hope you'll come back often.

And now, tell me something about you!



  1. Hi there! Long time follower, first time commenter. I did not meet you at BlogHer, I didn't go. But I have had you in my feed reader for a long time!

    I figured I'd take this opportunity to introduce myself:

    I'm Janelle (though on my blog I go by a different name for professional reasons).

    I am wife to one, mother of two girls.

    I write about my life, personal stuff.

    I live in the south but am looking to move up north in the coming years, I hope!

    And I will be returning to school later this month to get my teaching degree.

    And that's me!

  2. Hi Janelle! Wow! I'm so happy that you've been following me, but why no comments?! You need to join the party, girl. Thanks for the info about yourself. So nice to meet you!
