About Me



Hi, I'm Marie. Thanks for stopping by! I'm a mom of five that likes to write about the everyday happenings in my life. I try to be real and light-hearted at the same time because that's the kind of friend I enjoy. A sarcastic sense of humor is a bonus! I hope you'll have fun reading and check back often!

Background Information

I grew up in Western New York and moved to Tennessee 12 years ago. I'm a licensed Speech Pathologist, but don't currently practice. I love being a stay at home mom. Now that my kids are all in school (and one in college, yikes!), my days are more free. I enjoy blogging, oil painting, and any kind of creative or home improvement project in my spare time. I consider evenings my real workday with all that kids' activities, homework, making dinner, and having a family life entails after school until bedtime. 

I started my blog in September 2013, but never told a soul outside my immediate family until March 2014. I guess it took me awhile to find my courage and my voice! 

I'm honored that you're still reading at this point. If you'd like to stick around and read a little longer, I've compiled my most humorous posts here and my reflections on motherhood here. I hope you enjoy them!

  4. Hello Marie! Nice to meet you!
    I'm here from "where 2 or 3 are gathered." I also like sarcasm and writing, and I have six kiddos underfoot! People say "I don't know how you find time to write" but they don't understand that it helps keep me SANE! I like the title of your blog- normal everyday life. I find capturing these moments in words sometimes helps me to slow and and see them and appreciate them!

    Nice to meet you!

  12. Hi, Marie!

    Thank you for stopping by my blog yesterday!

    I love your "about me." I'm a licensed cosmetologist and high school English teacher (in TX and Hawaii) who decided the home is my favorite place to be! I don't know about you, but I feel so blessed to be able to do it. :)

    I love your warts-and-all approach to motherhood. I am definitely a new follower!
