About Me

This whole thing actually started on Myspace. Funny, I know, but it's true. August 31, 2007 was my first post. I just talked about my day to day or whatever was on my mind. One year and thirty-six posts later, I decided I could do this blogging thing for real.

Unscriptedlike all aspects of my life, is a work in progress. Originally started as a way to inform distant relatives and friends about the daily happenings of our life, it slowly progressed into a place I can be myself. Here I can recount my failures and triumphs as a stay-at-home mom; share my creativity as photographer, scrapbooker and writer; document the challenges of having a child with severe food allergies; and express my joy and struggles as a wife.

My goal is to be honest and authentic. I think it was put best when a friend told me I say and write the things that everyone else thinks and feels, but is afraid to say. 

My passion for photography began in my childhood. Always with my camera, experimenting with perspective and subject matter. It grew over the years and now with one BFA degree and more jobs than I'd like to count under my belt, I still carry a camera with me everywhere. Like AMEX I never leave home without it. Only now my subject matter are my kids, and as predicted they LOVE being in front of the camera. It's like that shirt I bought my son when he was a year old that said, "the paparazzi just won't leave me alone."

When I'm not being momarazzi I can be found curled up with a book, pounding the pavement with a 3mile run, or writing in one my many journals strewn throughout the house. I am addicted to coffee, especially the caramel frappuccinos from Starbucks. You don't want to catch me on a day I've missed my morning cup.  I love that I get to spend every day with my two beautiful children, watching them grow. I care way too much what other people think and totally sweat the small stuff. I'm a perfectionist who has disorganization tendencies. I need to improve on my time management skills and learn to not obsess over every little detail. I am utterly and completely arachnophobic, a bit high strung, and my own worst enemy. I enjoy creating things; laughing; singing in the car, shower, or while cooking; dancing, especially with my kids; and a nice glass of Barefoot Summer Red while in the company of friends and family.  

It's not perfect, but it's my life, totally unscripted, and I wouldn't change it for anything.

*When I am not writing about my own life here at Unscripted, you can find me writing about my experiences of motherhood; giving tips, crafting tutorials, reviewing products, and sharing recipes over at A Mom Knows.
