I was born May 27, 1974 in California. An Army brat- I’ve lived in multiple states and a couple of countries. I consider myself to be a Texan because I lived there most of my life. Currently I live in Stone Mountain, GA right outside of Atlanta.
I have one brother who I am very close to- he resides in Austin Texas. We both went to the same university and obtained the same degree. I have an older sister who I talk to every day- she was raised in St. Louis, MO while I lived in San Antonio, TX. Unfortunately I didn’t even know she existed until I was 12 years old but we’ve been best friend since the day we met.
My husband and I originally met about 12 years ago online. We were best friends for years before I woke up and realized the perfect man was right in front of me. We’ve been happily married every since.
I have two wonderful little boys- EbonyBoy who was born July 13, 2002 and EbonyBaby who was born January 23, 2005. We have a lot of fun together and I enjoy being a stay at home mom.
I hold a degree in environmental engineering- it took me 6 years to finish a 5 year degree, I worked for a firm in New York for a year and realized that engineering just wasn’t right for me. Web design was a hobby and something I did for fun while working in campus computerlabs while in college and I turned it into my career for a national insurance agency. I someday hope to return to school to get a degree in photography.
I started this blog because though I know many black stay at home mothers I have seen very few blogs which are written by us. I have many varied interests including cooking, decorating, homeschooling, naturopathic, travelling and of course reading blogs.
