Hi, my name is Molly, and I’m a writer, gardener, adventurer, and mom of two amazing and unconventional girls.
I grew up in a small town in Texas, but all that changed when I met a crazy, salsa-dancing South American man named Juan.
We were friends, dance partners, and eventually he got up the nerve to ask me out on an actual date, and the rest is history.
We got married right out of college and soon we will celebrate our 12th anniversary.
It’s been a crazy adventure with this guy. We’ve travelled a lot.
A whole lot.
A whole, whole lot.
Then, we found out we were expecting a baby! And then we found out that I was one of a very few women that suffer from a pregnancy illness called Hyperemesis Gravidarum (HG), a debilitating and life-threatening form of morning sickness. I made it through my first pregnancy and gave birth to an amazing little girl.
We had lots of adventures together.
And then in 2010, we decided to have another baby, and I started this blog to chronicle my fight with Hyperemesis Gravidarum. It was a rough journey, and I survived by the skin of my teeth to bring our youngest daughter into the world.
Time passes and blogs evolve. You won’t find me writing as much about HG anymore. Two times around with it is enough for me, and our family of four feels like just the right size for us.
These days, I divide my time between work and home. I work part time doing outreach for Monsanto (obviously, all opinions in this blog are mine and mine alone), and I work the rest of the time as a stay at home mom.
These days, I write about my garden, my kitchen adventures, and the various crazy things my family gets up to.
