My name is Krista Lord and welcome to my blog where I write about being a Mom,my daily life, and trying to do it all creatively. I don’t intend this blog as a diary or personal journal, but rather a space to share little scattered moments and projects that might inspire or at least be relatable. Please feel free to leave me a comment or thought of your own.
Here are a few things about me:
Family: My husband Jeramy (yes, that is how you spell his name) and I have been together for over 16 years, and married for 7. We have a 4-year old son, Simon, and one more on the way! We share our home with two little kitties, Molly and Sam.
Maine: We live in central Maine. Both Jeramy and I have lived here our whole lives, and though we often talk of running away to Ireland, we really do feel lucky to live in such a great state. We get to be close to the ocean and the forests, and to experience the extremes of the seasons. I often write here about the weather, and how it influences the rhythms of our life.
Work: I work on the children’s floor of our local library as both an Assistant Librarian and the Storytime Programmer. I have a lifelong love of Children’s Literature, so it is a happy place for me to be. I also have flexible hours which enables me to be home with Simon a lot of the time.
Hobbies: I love art. I have my college degree in art, with a minor in art history. I consider myself mostly a printmaker and a painter, though I also enjoy many other forms of creative expression. I am currently trying to make more time to fit art and creativity back into my daily life. I hope that I am role modeling my creative passion for my child.
