Once Upon a Time...

Her fairytale adventure started when she first shook hands with the Brawny lumberjack man... and walked away.

Two years later, Ifdy married that lumberjack, who continues to call her his fair Cuban maiden till this day. Her life has taken a direction she never would've dreamed, and has learned valuable lessons along the way––like NEVER assume poop will stay inside the diaper.

Ifdy is a former tech startup marketer turned stay-at-home mom with a tyrannical toddler boss she calls G. She lives with her Prince Charming, Mark, and G's own court jester, Bandit (the cattle dog), all inside a small yet magical home in Northern Virginia.

My family.

My family.

In this blog, I'll share with you tips, tricks, and other unsolicited advice that I've learned throughout this journey called life––which includes singlehood, wifehood, motherhood, and workhood. We're not all just moms or wives; we're multi-layered women, so I hope to share some of my insight to help make your life a little easier. And I hope you'll share some of you're own, too. I know I could use it!

This is why I want all my readers to feel welcome to share their experiences, thoughts, and opinions without fear of being judged, attacked, hurt, "snarked," or in general, receive any negative response from me or the rest of the community. With that said, consider your grandmother's adage: if you have nothing nice to say, don't say it at all. No one's forcing anyone to read or respond to posts on this blog; we're all here because we want to get through this thing called life as best as possible, and could use some help along the way.

That being said, I hope you'll stay, and visit again and again! I want to get to know you, and learn from you, so please don't be shy. Grab a seat and a drink. We have so much to catch up on!
