Hi, It's Me!

Hi guys!  One of the things I love about doing events & pop-ups is that I get to talk with people in person, ask questions, kind of get to know people a bit, and connect.  It's harder on social media because the vibe is more scrolling, less reading.  :)  With all the questions I get when I'm doing in-person events, I thought it would be fun to start answering them here on the blog and also try to share a bit more personally.  The connections I've made through the website and by sharing our infertility story have been amazing and my hope is that it will only continue!

So, if you know me well, then you probably won't find anything too shocking here ... buuuut, if you don't, well now you'll know a bit more about this person over here behind chip&chisel!   

#1 - I'm 36 years old and an aries.
#2 - I was raised by two amazing people, neither of them are my bio parents.  They are the definition of selflessness.
#3 - My husband Ian and I are celebrating 7 years of marriage next month!
#4 - I was married once before in my mid twenties.
#5 - I met Ian at the gym during my divorce - he was also going through a divorce. We thought the timing couldn't have been worse, but turns out, it couldn't have been better!
#6 - I never wanted kids before I met Ian.
#7 - We went through 6 IVF cycles to conceive our miracle girls.
#8 - I'm a firefighter wife and proud of it!
#9 - My husband and kids are literally EVERYTHING to me.
#10 - So are coffee and wine. 

You can find me here each week sharing answers to the questions I get and if you have something you'd like to add, throw it my way!
