Hello and welcome!
My name is Destinie and I'm excited you are here! If spontaneous adventures, babies, and iced lattes give you life, then we might be kindred spirits. I use my little space here on the web to share the struggles and celebrate the victories of motherhood, while also highlighting the joy in all things. (Because that's what we ESFP's do - we are full of energy, excitement, and JOY, and can't help but turn everything into a positive!) I love connecting with people through their struggles, victories, and life stories; it's this co-suffering love that brings us closer to God and to each other!
A little more about me - my husband and I are from Southern California, but currently reside in the suburbs of NYC while he is in seminary. We are Orthodox Christians and I've adopted St. Paisios' "be the bee" as my personal life motto. After having my daughter, Elizabeth, two years ago, I found my purpose in life amid the messiness and chaos of raising babies. Our little family of three will become a family of four this November and we couldn't be more excited to bring home baby girl number two!
In addition to being a wife, mama, and blogger, I like to describe myself as *slightly* granola. By that I mean, I am very intentional about the products we bring into our home and the way we do life. I'm a natural birth, breastfeeding, baby-wearing, and co-sleeping guru, who loves me some well-made wooden toys. However, *slightly* granola allows space for my Starbucks, Cinnabon, and shopping mall loves, too! ;)
I hope you'll stick around for a bit and maybe even drop a line below to connect! I would love love love to make some new connections!
