This blog is my mom’s fault. When Kiddo was born she gave me a notebook and asked me to journal about my experiences with parenting. Turns out I am more of a typer than a scribbler so here I am. I also thought having an outlet for more personal writings might take pressure off and help alleviate the writers block I get when writing for work…kind of an attempt to keep the writing pipes flowing.
This blog has not particular agenda. It was not meant to be a “mommy blog”, but what mommy blog ever starts out that way. I am a feminist, a lefty, wannabe crafter, aspiring runner, suburban subversive and an anti-violence advocate, I am sure those topics will find there way here because they color my world.
So about me: I am a thirty something “new” mom. Because I am a thirty something, I am bordering on being an “old” mom. I am married to a fabulous fellow, we live in the ‘burbs in the California Central Valley. I am a Bay Area native and a semi-SAHM. We garden and keep chickens. Sometimes I think it would be great to live on a farm and have a little roadside stand selling homemade jam, and other times I wish I could move the whole gang to Oakland because I miss the noise and accessibility of city life.
About the name Yoga Pants and Wine? Because the clothes make the (wo)man and you are what you eat….I suppose.
