Meet the Bloom Brigade
Today we are unveiling the Power Poppy design team…Meet the Bloom Brigade! To tell you a little about myself, let me answer this question.
Q. What TV sitcom family would you fit right into?
A. Well, I'd have to say The Middle. Boy oh boy, do I feel Frankie's pain. I am right there along with her sighs of defeat...from helping her son create a science project he forgot to tell her about that is due in the morning or the constant piles of "to do" stuff that never get done. Wanting to be the perfect mom, but finding herself on the couch with a bag of chips surrounded by unfolded laundry and no plans on making dinner! I'm not like that all the time or to such exaggeration, but I can definitely laugh at the similarities I see in my own home!
Taking care of two boys ages 10 and 8 can sometimes seem a challenge...they definitely keep me on my toes. We are always running around to various sporting activities and school functions. I like to stay active by kickboxing at least 3 times a week. Sometimes when I feel like I can't go one more minute I just think of someone who deserves a punch and I can get my rhythm back no problem! It's a great stress reliever! As the weather warms up I love to walk, run, ride my bike, and hike with my family. My husband and I have always hiked with the boys, even before they could walk on their own, and instilled a love of nature and the outdoors. The country life is the one I crave and I long for the day when I can't see my neighbors and I get eggs from my own chickens. I'd like a goat too...yeah, they're cute! Now, I do love my peace and quiet, but that never stops me from getting together with friends every chance I can. And one of my favorite getaways is to take weekend excursions with my fellow photographers and head north to the Adirondacks. My favorite photography is nature; landscapes, wildlife, and macro. Landscapes don't talk back. Or move. Great subjects!
So, when I am not going in 10 different directions or at 100 miles per hour, sipping a glass of wine and enjoying a quiet evening at home with my husband, dog, cat, various small animals and reptiles, oh, and maybe the kids, is one of my most favorite things to do! It's a crazy, fun, full of love (an animal hair, don't forget) kind of household and I wouldn't trade it for the world.
