About me and this blog

 Up to 4.06.09:Musings of a modern mom and indie business owner.

As of 4.07.09:
I feel the need to make this blog a bit more cathartic and personal for myself. Originally, my goal was to journal my business and balancing that with being a mom. I've realized that I censor myself greatly by doing so. This blog has been a watered down version of myself which leaves me a bit unsatisfied.

I've struggled with why and how I should blog and who really gives a flip. What it comes down to is this: I'm doing it because it makes me happy. I can't separate who I am from what I do.

So, like me, this about me page and blog will evolve in the coming days, weeks, etc. Such is life.

I've always liked the idea of keeping a journal or diary. I've started many in my lifetime. Follow through was always hard and after a few weeks, at the most, I'd give it up. This blog is the most successful attempt I've ever had at keeping a journal. With that in mind, it's gonna get a bit personal. My family is heading into yet another period of major change in our lives. I'd like to document it here. If you read something that makes you wonder why I'd blog about it, it may be something written with my kids in mind.

I should add that I love exploring the internet. This is something I do for fun and relaxation, as well as for business. I enjoying sharing my finds with friends, family, and basically anyone who will listen. I tend to be a bottomless well of obscure information, pop culture, diy/techie tips, and modern design.

Here are some things about me. These aren't in any particular order. They are just things that make up who I am and how I see my world.

I am...
...fiercely independent
...a recovering baptist (the barn storming, independent fundamental type)
...married to my best friend and man of my dreams
...a wife of a neurosurgeon; 6th 7th year out of 7 years residency after a liberal arts degree and years in banking
...a mom of two incredible boys; always knew I'd have boys and love it.
...creative, entrepreneurial, and a problem solver
...multi racial (1/2 Vietnamese, 1/2 North American Mix(German, Irish, French, Native American, etc.)
...ever evolving

I like...
...good music
...good food
...good people
...good design
...a good laugh

I can't live without... family music free will

I believe......that what goes around, comes around is too short to be bitter, grumpy, and unkind
...that change is good
...when one door closes another one opens no regrets learning from our mistakes
...perfection is overrated making the most of what you have
...if at first you don't succeed, try, try again
