I’m putting my fancy dancing shoes on and actually taking time to do my hair and makeup!! What’s the occasion you ask? Well the Ultimate Blog Party of course! This is my first year participating and I’m so looking forward to meeting some new bloggy friends.
My Pixie Dust Diary started back in 2011 as a way for me to share my thoughts, feelings and two cents on things happening – pregnancy, parenting, travel and Disney among other things. For a while it was just something fun to do in my free time – I shared my pregnancy, kids, thoughts, opinions and feelings on various things through the years. Something changed this winter and I really decided to kick myself in the pants and see where this ride would take me. After the holidays, I spent a good bit of time trying to get organized and teach myself the basics of having a “real” blog and being able to make a difference in my corner of the internet. From there things snowballed pretty quickly and here we are today! I don’t know where we’re headed but I can promise you the ride is going to be worth it so stick around and we’ll see together!
As for me, I’m a mommy of three amazing kiddos. I was meant to be a mom. Having grown up in a less than ideal setting, I promised myself I’d do better for my kids. There’s lots of room for improvement but I feel like I’m doing ok most days. Currently I’ve got several balls in the air: I work full time outside the home doing finance and human resources stuff for a local government agency. I also spend a good portion of the year co-chairing our community’s breast cancer walk and this being our fifth year is so exciting! We’ve been able to donate over $40,000 in the past four years and make such a positive impact on our community. Volunteering also is part of my life with the PTO at the boy’s school and for the local fire department’s auxiliary. In the free time between all that, I’m right here writing, photographing, vlogging and looking for new fun things to share with you.
Thank you so much for stopping by!! Hopefully we’ll be seeing more of you around here. Big things are happening behind the scenes so be sure to check back for the reveals.
