I’ve tried to rewrite and update this About Us section so many times over the past couple years and have been repeatedly unsuccessful. No idea why I am unable to talk about us in this platform because if I was talking to you face to face I’d tell you all about our little family and how awesome I think it is.
So here’s a recap of who and what we are:
I am a new citizen of this amazing country (as of June 29th, 2017) after living in Minnesota for close to 18 years.
I am a lesbian; married to the most amazing woman I’ve ever met.
I am a mother of the most spirited 4 year old you’ll ever meet.
I play (ice) hockey, I played hockey in South Africa and it is the reason I came to the United States, to play college hockey. Being on the ice is literally one of the best feelings in my entire world.
I am an accountant by ‘trade’, a CPA, a CMA, and a MBA.
I blog in my ‘spare time’ – between working full time, raising an awesome little girl, attempting to be a kick ass wife, playing hockey (in the winter), and trying to keep the layer of dust in our home to under an inch.
Is a local Minnesota girl, born and raised in South St Paul.
Learned all about hockey in a crash course after starting to date me, despite growing up in one of the largest hockey cities in Minnesota.
Loves everything super hero, seriously everything!
Works in management at a large home improvement retail store.
Married her soul mate (I hope) in November 2013.
Is extremely passionate about human rights, civil rights, equality and how we can raise our daughter in a world where she is empowered, appreciated, and overall bad a**!
In her own words; “I am a Wonder Woman Princess!”
Is spirited. (I never knew what this meant until we were blessed with Gradie).
Is a ‘girly girl’ despite having 2 moms who are definitely NOT girly.
Loves gymnastics and has been in sessions/classes for a couple years and is the one activity she asks to go back to.
Loves playing with toys, testing out kid related products and modeling clothes and shoes to share with you all.
We are a 2 mom family, we are a proud of our family and celebrate everything GLBT.
We love going on ‘adventures’.
We have 2 ‘old’ dogs, Tanner (13) and Logan (12), read more about them here.
We love being silly.
