Mother of 4 who loves her smalls and her husband, And Now We Are Six is also devoted to ribbon, LEGO minifigs, glass cloches and NPR. She fancies wrapping and giving little presents. She longs to win dishwasher loading and sleeping competitions - two talents she regrets remain so hidden. Life in an increasingly distant past involved government and public relations (the favorite being crisis communications - skills still being used most days!). She dreams of opening a bakery and boutique filled with her favorites (ribbon, pretty paper, children's books, classic toys, vintage treasures, pastries, coffee, and hostess gifts). Meanwhile she is busy teaching her children Southern American English and to print without serifs. Thanks in advance for reading and even more, for cheering from afar. And for overlooking poor grammar and punctuation. Beginning with the blog title.
