HI! My name is Debbie – I was born and raised in Johannesburg, South Africa. I moved to Minnesota in the fall of 1999 to attend college and play college ice hockey. I was very fortunate to receive a great education, from the University of St. Catherine, in St. Paul, MN, and have remained in Minnesota ever since.
I am a daughter, hockey player and referee, accountant – CPA, CMA, MBA, and most recently, and definitely most important, Wife and MOM.
I now live in St Paul, Minnesota with my amazing wife Jeanna, our beautiful daughter Gradie, and two miniature pinschers, Tanner & Logan.
Africa’s Blog originated in 2010 and over the years, with lots of time and hard work by Jeanna and I, it has morphed into what it is today After recent updates, I am re-energized and excited about taking you on a journey of my life ~ our life ~ our journey as 2 moms on 1 great adventure… Parenthood!!
Just as I said above, we are two moms, Debbie and Jeanna, two cloth diapering, babywearing, firm believers in breastfeeding, moms. Each new day brings us new adventures, trials and tribulations in this thing called ‘Parenthood’, and I hope you’ll sit back and enjoy the ride with us………….
