Hi SITSAHS!! Welcome to my little piece of the blogging world. I am very excited for my SITS day.
Let me explain to readers who have no idea what I’m talking about. The SITS Girls is an amazing online blogging community of over 40,000 women dedicated to supporting each other through social media, mainly blogging. I first stumbled upon the SITSgirls about 2 years ago and have been
stalking part of their community ever since. In fact, last May I even traveled to Philadelphia to experience my first blogging conference at Bloggy Boot Camp, hosted by the SITS girls. Seriously if your a blogger and haven’t checked out the SITS girls just do it! Membership is completely free!
So each day the SITS girls chooses a blogger to feature and today is my time to shine.
My husband, Adrian, and I are originally from New England but landed ourselves quite a distance away from any sort of ocean thanks to the military. I frequently write and share about our experiences exploring Washington DC .
As a pediatric Speech Language Pathologist, I spend my work week teaching children to speak, listen, swallow and correctly use their voice, at a local Children’s Hospital. After returning to work following the birth of my second child, I struggled with finding my place in the work force again. Now 18 months later, I still find it a challenge, but push forward for my family. As a way to ignite my passion for my career, I began a weekly speech and language series here on the blog. Now every Monday, I feature quick and easy tips and ideas in the areas of speech, language, and feeding development. Once a month, I feature guest posts from parents of children with disabilities and medical professionals such as pediatricians, audiologists, and nutritionists.
During the month of October you will find my fall language festival series , with great fall themed books, language lessons, crafts, and giveaways.
Sometimes I share letters that I’ve written to my mom, who has not been part of our lives for over a year. She continues to battle with bipolar depression and that is how she chooses to deal with it. It’s hard not to let it affect me, but these letters have become self therapy.
On a happier note, we are trying to grow our family again. This time we are needing the help of the doctors, as my struggle with PCOS is rearing it’s ugly head. I plan to document my journey with infertility along the way. Here’s to hoping it is a short one, as we grow from a family of four to five.
Other than my crazy boys my two passions are knitting and photography. My favorite subjects for both are the boys. Recently I shared my favorite photos of the boys from the summer and finished knitting Noah a sweater jacket for the fall.
I tend to over share too many photos and words, but will stop rambling for now. Put your toes in the sand and collect a few of your own shells while poking around my memories and thoughts of my life with boys.
