Share a little something about yourself with other moms.
I am a first time mom to a wonderful, precious, beautiful daughter. Wife to an amazing husband who works as a firefighter in Northern California. He is gone a minimum of 2 days a week but will usually pick up overtime which makes him gone at least 3 days a week. I am sort of a business owner. I say sort of because since having Emily, it's all changed! I am the one to take care of her while he is at work which makes it challengine to run a business. But nevertheless, I keep at it! :)
What is your blogging philosophy?
I like to blog just to release some emotions and stay connected with friends and family with updates on the three of us. I have two blogs, one that is more family oriented, one that is more personal.
I have been blogging since...
2007, when I became pregnant!

Hi there from The Girlz Korner in upstate New York where you'll find light, witty and rather entertaining articles on every topic imaginable from The Little Black Dress to Making Whoopie.

Hey Denise! Glad to meet another firefighter wife. :) Our schedule is 24 on, 48 off... then there's the OT... dh is on a 4 day stretch right now. Is he involved with fighting the wildfires out there? I was reading your Thankful Thursday post and I know those emotions.. down to caring for the new baby on your own a lot of the time... Our son is 2 now, but I went through those days and it can be hard some (a lot of!) days. If you ever wanna chat with someone who can relate, let me know... I have yahoo mssgr... ChristyMW2. (Just tell me who you are so I don't think it is one of those crazy spam IMs that come through sometimes, lol). I'm bookmarking your blog. :) (I have to clean up my reader before I add anymore, lol, it is a mess!).
