Welcome to the circus that is Freaky Perfect!
While I’m definitely not a “mommy blogger,” and I write about much more than my home life, my family is very important to me. They are the ever-present cast of characters who influence me. My family and I are like sideshow vagabonds, traipsing around the world, being dragged from town to town, putting ourselves on display for all to see. We stick together, protecting each other when the world makes fun of us. But we also revel in the good times, enjoying life on the road and in the public eye, and making the most of whatever circumstances we find ourselves in.
I’m always on the edge of chaos, but constantly soaking up all this wonderful world has to offer. I’m a loyal friend, voracious reader, food-lover, sometimes grump, and awesome mom. In a former life, I was a hotel industry insider and travel writer. Now, I’m just a writer. And speaker. And trainer. And entrepreneur. In other words, I stay busy.
My husband is Nick, AKA the Incredibly Laid-Back Man. He’s very placid and calm. That drives me nuts. I’m sure he spends most days looking around in confusion, wondering how in the heck he ended up here. You see, he’s British, but somehow, I’ve managed to drag him all over America.
My older son, Jack, is one of the kindest, most loving humans I’ve ever met. He’s small for his age, smart as a whip, and very artistic.
And last, but not least, there’s Finn. Although he’s the youngest member of the sideshow, he has the temperament of that old man who yells “Hey you kids, get off my lawn!” But he’s got a cutting, dry sense of humor that keeps us in stitches.
Of course, there are more sideshow performers in our troupe than just the four of us. There’s a rotating group of friends and fellow freaks who float in and out of my life and my stories. I’m ever thankful for them.
And I’m thankful for you, my readers, the people who continue to buy tickets to the fair. You’re the reason I even bother to pitch this tent. Thanks for coming by. Feel free to gawk, point fingers and laugh at me. I’m used to it.
