Welcome! Tales of Whimsy was born in the summer of 2009 as a place for me to share my thoughts on fantastical books. Since then, as all good blogs do, Tales of Whimsy has grown and evolved with me. I now listen/read all sorts of things and am proud and honored to be part of wonderful community of bookwormy friends. In the winter of 2011, my life changed forever with the birth of my daughter (who I commonly refer to as Baby Whimsy). Now Tales of Whimsy covers mamahood musings, audios, books, and whimsy with panache.
I am a happily married stay-at-home mommy and book lover that adores old things. When I'm not taking care of my sweet baby girl, I am usually stealing a moment with an eBook or listening to an audiobook while I do housework or run errands. Thank God for my iPod.
I heart baby giggles. I can usually be found in pair of yoga pants. I collect vintage blue floral flat sheets and paintings of flowers in vases. My camera is never far away. Black clothes are my thing. I heart upcycling and turning old junk into fun decor. My decorating Yoda is Donna of Funky Junk Interiors. I never leave my house without lipstick and sunglasses. I have big curly hair. I was frugal before it was cool. I'm addicted to web surfing, thrifting, laughing, pearls, lace, mini roses, flip flops, aspens, exotic food, getting mail, Scrabble, Family Feud, and Antiques Roadshow. I believe prayer, stretching, and tea always help. Slurpees and bubble gum make my inner child happy. Rainy days rock. I use to be a serial daydreamer. I can't wait to read, twirl, bake, stargaze, and find shapes in fluffy clouds with my little girl. I'm a happy crier. I have a big heart. I am constantly misunderstood. I am sassy and saucy but totally a softy on the inside.
Thank you for visiting Tales of Whimsy. Y'all come back now ya hear. *wink wink*
