My new BFF

Every so often I poke fun at myself. Where, I wail, where can you find another woman, close enough to my age, with a kid somewhat near one of mine, who also:

– unschools
– is crafty
– is crunchy in the AP sense (meaning, breastfed, gentle parenting etc..)
– is a low-key Christian who doesn’t go to church
– is near enough to get together face to face occasionally
– is ADD or at least semi-disorganized ;P so won’t mind if I am
– works at home like I do
– works as a WORDPRESS consultant like I do.

Pretty specific list, huh?

Found one. 😀

Seriously, you’d think with all this in common we’d have nothing to talk about, but nope.


  1. Oh you have NO idea how happy I am to have a new BFF 😀 It’s absolutely refreshing! I feel much less out there now that I’ve found someone like me, near enough to me that I can tell people IRL “no, people like me don’t just exist online!” 😀

    So, so happy to meet you – and excited to see what our two ADD brains hatch (evil chuckle)….

  2. That’s exactly how I felt when Michelle moved here and we talked for the first time:

    ~ obsessed with books
    ~ reads everything and anything
    ~ Christian but not overly-evangelicalized (is that a word?)
    ~ allows her kids to read Harry Potter, LOTR, have Pokemon cards, etc.
    ~ Has boys near my boys’ age
    ~ Loves coffee and wine
    ~ Is Irish in heritage
    ~ Is an unapologetic anglophile
    ~ Loves movies
    ~ Classical-leaning homeschooler

    I could go on and on – but isn’t that kind of serendipity just a miracle? I’m so happy for you!

    Oh, and told my hubby about you and Ron meeting the WP guru – and speaking at the upcoming conference – he was duly impressed!

  5. I really liked your blog! good
