Born on the 10th of March in Auckland, New Zealand, the oldest of three. Now, almost 23 years later I find myself pregnant with my first child, due… on the 11th of March. Happy birthday to me.

Over the years my family moved from place to place a few times, eventually settling in Te Awamutu where I met my now-husband. Engaged at 16 (much to some people’s surprise) and married at 18, we have just celebrated our fourth wedding anniversary. Though our family still resides in the Waipa area, he and I now live in Tokoroa with our two and a half cats (one decided to adopt the neighbours) and one dog.

Follow me on the home stretch of my pregnancy as I stumble into motherhood and beyond.
