What child is this?

I’m Katrina. I live in the Midwest, and I am 25 years old. I’ve been married for nearly 4 years, and I have a nearly two year old. We homeschool. Unschool, actually. We live in a tiny apartment, and try to live as naturally as we can. The cool thing about being “green” is that it’s usually cheap and good for you too- those are three things I try to accomplish with our choices, so it’s nice when they all work together like that. My goal will be to update this blog daily, with at least a picture.

Hello World.

I have a blog! Well, I’ve had an online journal for a while, but all the cool kids have a blog, with gorgeous pictures, and inspiring ideas- I hope I’m one of them. 🙂 I’m going to use this as sort of an online scrapbook- a record of our days, lists of ideas, and my hopes and dreams for myself and my family. I want to write about AP (that’s attachment parenting), things like why I do them, what I believe, what led me on this path, and my passions- which include my family, friends, birth, the environment, herbs, crafting, food and a plethora of other things. I want to include pictures- at least one per blog post- because that’s my favorite thing about other people’s blogs, is the pictures!

Here’s the post that kind of got me thinking about starting a blog of my own:

Is it asking too much to want to be

Hathor the CowGoddes
Penny Simkin
and Rachel Brice

All at once?

Hmm… The Boy says it is.

Maybe I can be as attached as Hathor (check)

As crafty as Soulemama (getting there)

As good a doula as Penny Simkin (a ways to go yet)

As good an herbalist as Kiva (NOWHERE close yet)

and as good a bellydancer as Rachel Brice (in my dreams)– or at least an accomplished bellydancer in my own right.

In reality… they’re just faces for different aspects of myself. 🙂
