My name is Becky, and I am an Accidental Southern Mama. I’m a wife, mother, “Queen of the Comma Splice” and librarian.
I’m the Mama of two little girls and married to my husband, the Ranger, since 1998. I grew up in the foothills of the North Cascade Mountains in Washington State (shout out to the Mt. Baker area!) and after getting married moved to the Western Pennsylvania (shout out to the Portage area!). The family up and moved to Tennessee on short notice in the late summer / early fall 2010. We are learning to be Southerners, y’all!
First off, let’s straighten out the title, I’m not a Mama by accident, I’m a Mama by choice (I love being a Mama). I’m in the South kinda sorta on accident. It was kinda sorta planned and thought about (for about 3 minutes) when my husband called and said, “They offered me the position at _______. What do you think?” I knew there was a possibility we would be moving from Pennsylvania, but we had just about given up on the resumes that had been sent out and had planned to stay where we were.
I’m blogging about my life as a Mama from the hills of the Pacific Northwest who spent 12 years in the mountains of Western Pennsylvania who has just moved to Western Tennessee. I’m blogging about my urchins – Big and Baby; about my idiot cats; about being me and living my life. I’m also sharing some book reviews (professional habit) and my lack of skills at being a Domestic Impersonator.
This blog is mostly for friends and family who now live very, VERY far away, but if you are interested in seeing what kind of trouble I can get myself into feel free to hang around.
