About Me

Hi, I’m Maria.  Welcome to my blog.


I am 37 years of age and I live in South Eastern Massachusetts.  I am married, I work full time, and I have two children.  There is a strange phenomenon that takes place in my home.  There is more tornado activity on our half acre of land than in any other geographical location on the east coast.  I am considering calling in scientists to explain these strange incidents which sweep through my house displacing toys, clothing, and binkies everywhere. For now I just document it here for further study.

It may be a coincidence, but I’m pretty sure it all has to do with these two:

Cute, aren’t they?  Don’t let the older one fool you.  She’s a schemer, that one.  She knows exactly how to adorningly push my buttons.  And the little guy, he learns quickly.

The majority of the pictures on my site, including the one above were taken by my loving husband, who is also responsible for the web development.  I write it; he makes it look pretty.  Otherwise, instead of getting to see cool pictures like this one he took:

You’d be subjected to MY photography skills, which produce gems like this:

I think I’ll stick with the writing.  In addition to documenting my mommy adventures, I host the occasional contest or bring you up to speed on local events and promotions.  Thanks for stopping by!  Please come back often, and comment a lot.  I’m a self professed comment junkie and I love to hear what you think.

I am an Amazon Associate. From time to time I may link to products on Amazon that I find interesting. Should you click on that link and purchase that item within a short period of time I will receive credit from Amazon of a very small percentage.
