Let's get the party rolling!
Today the Ultimate Blog Party starts at 5 Minutes for Mom! I'm so excited! I just love parties!
Join in, meet some bloggers, and let's have some fun! You'll have to use your imagination for my all-time favorite Spinach Artichoke Dip with whole wheat crackers, virgin sangria, and Pampered Chef's Pizzetta Triangles with my very own pepperoni pizza dip. Okay, so the different flavors represented here may not go so well together, but that's what you get when I'm craving all sorts of things at once!
A bit about me... I'm a devoted wife, mother to 2 toddlers - currently ages 1 and 2, a knitter trying to teach herself to crochet, a worshiper of God, lover of books, friend, sister, a compassionate advocate for justice, a tree-hugging granola junkie and closet chocoholic. I speak Romanian and Russian, have been to 13 or so countries and spent 3 years in Moldova where I met my absolutely wonderful husband. He's the opposite of me in almost every way, and we complement each other perfectly.
I never planned on being a mother, but it's amazing how a blessing so unplanned and unexpected can fulfill every longing I never knew I had and turn me into the woman I never dreamed I'd become.
I've just started struggling through Yevgeny Yevtushenko's novel "Ne umerai prezhde smertei" in Russian (which my husband most lovingly found for me), I'm mournfully canceling an upcoming trip to Thailand to work with trafficked women, and I'm gearing up for a probable move to England this summer (eek!). The ground is shifting beneath me, but I count on Christ as the solid rock to be my firm foundation.
