It’s time for a new About Me. Lots of stuff has changed since Hespera’s Garden bloomed.
My name is Kristie. I am 30-something. I am a woman, a wife, a mother, a friend, a daughter, a sister. And I’m a (fairy-)god-mother. My Daughter – The Divine Miss T – is 5 and is half way through her first year of Big School. Though, she will always be my baby. I have been married for 3+ years. We forgot our Wedding Anniversary last year. I’ve suffered secondary infertility due to PCOS. It took 3.5 years to successfully fall pregnant after Miss T. I love that I am a woman. I love chocolate and bunnies (and chocolate bunnies!) and cuddles stolen at 4am in the morning by my big girl. I talk in circles sometimes. I use far too many ellipses… sometimes swear. And I make spelling mistakes.
On July 14 2011, my son Avery came into this world stillborn. He was full term. He is missed. A lot of Hespera’s Garden is about finding a new balance, a new Every Day and navigating this together with my family (and my friends). There is a lot of raw stuff that happens here. And I don’t apologise for it – much.
I don’t talk about my hubby at his request, so if this blog seems a little one sided – it is. I rabbit on about crap often, and speak my mind – as foggy as that is. I’ll try and be interesting, but I’ve got no guarantees.
