About Me

20140309_140654Hmmm… a little about me. Me… well, I’m Natasha. I am 30+ yrs. old. I am proudly Canadian. Yes, that is indeed an important fact about me. No matter where my life takes me, I will always and forever be fiercely and proudly Canadian <3

I am wife to a delightful man, Kenny, who I have been with for 16 years this summer(2017). We are an interracial couple – though I am sure you didn’t need me to tell you that if you already looked at the picture! We met online before it was cool, and that is how I came to be in the US! I am a mother of 4 amazing children who are sweet, wonderful, challenging, precocious, intelligent, creative, and test my patience. 1 girl and 3 boys completes our family. No four-legged family members currently, as 2 of 4 are allergic to dogs…. *sigh* ….and no cats yet, to which our other son has a mild reaction to. We do have two guinea pigs. One that our daughter saved her birthday money for and loves dearly! The other guinea pig we rescued last year from a terrible situation. She is my little snuggle buddy, and is so happy to be a part of our family.

I am a jack of all trades, expert of none. I try to live life simply, though life is never simple. I adore photography, baking, writing, horses, reading, reading and more reading. I strive every day to better myself, though sometimes I swear I have taken 50 steps backwards. I am a recovering perfectionist…. have not totally been able to get rid of this annoying trait yet, but am lightyears away from where I was!

I am practical and logical thinker.

I struggle with meeting new people. I seem quiet when first met, but am a steadfast friend once you get to know me. I am a listening ear, giver of hugs and shoulder to cry on. I try to uplift and encourage as best as I can to all who enter my life.

I am a country girl finally living in the country again. I never expected to live in the high desert, and prefer a more lush location, but still love it here.

In 2014 my life changed forever. I became chronically ill, and over the course of the next 3 years I health declined. I ended up in a wheelchair, where I am currently as I write this. No one knew what was wrong until a few months ago when I was diagnosed with Lyme Disease, Bartonella and Babesia. They think there might be more infections but for now we work on those. I had a unprovoked pulmonary embolism June 2017, along with multiple episodes of stroke like symptoms, and heart issues. It has been a rough journey, but we’re hoping to eventually get me back to where I can function at a normal capacity again…. it’s been a journey, and it’s not over yet.

Lyme Warrior – Ready to fight…

All in all… I am a warrior, a woman, a mother, a friend, a help…. aka Wife.
