Welcome to my new little corner of the internet. I’m Christine, and excited for this journey. A few months ago I welcomed my first child, and took a step back from my career to be with him. I hope to use this space to write about the joys and challenges of new motherhood and finding yourself in the world when you’re not often out in the world.
In addition to being a mom, I’m a social worker, dog trainer, and vegan. I’ve had the privilege of working with children and young adults with developmental disabilities and also snuggling puppies and getting paid for it. I’ve loved it all. But my work has all taught me the importance of good, close relationships, and I felt it was best for my family to nurture my relationship with this new little person while he was still very new. I’m missing adults and using my brain, and hope to share some things that may be of use or interest to someone. During this new chapter in my life, I’m trying out photography, writing, and just breathing and being.
I share my life with my husband, our son, and our crazy little rescue dog. Many of my parenting philosophies are born out of experiences being “dog mom”, and I’ll write about that in due time. Thank you for checking in.
