Nine and a half months ago I became mama to a beautiful baby girl. My husband and I didn't know she was going to be a girl. It was a secret to everyone, even our doctor. It was the sweetest, most fulfilling, surprise of our lives, and it's a surprise that keeps on giving.
So, I'm a mama. That's the newest adjective in the list of adjectives in my blog title. So far, it's the best job I've ever had.
I'm also Midwestern. I was born in metro-Detroit, grew up there, and did my undergraduate studies at Western Michigan University. After that I moved away from the Midwest for 10 years, but now I'm back! We live on the south side of Chicago, a city I'm just getting to know, but is already feeling like home. Maybe it's because of my Midwestern heart and soul.
And I'm musical. I love to sing. I play the piano. Once upon a time I played the violin, and erhu. Sometimes I pretend to play guitar. I like acting in musicals, listening to jazz singers, and singing lullabies to my baby. Anything can be a lullaby, if you sing it lullaby-ishly.
I'm a lot of other things too, I'll share them eventually, but I like alliterations, so musical, Midwestern, and mama, made the cut. In this blog, you will find my musings.
