Me (Heddy, short for Hedwig): 26, married to the most amazing man on earth, mother to the gosh-darn-cutest boy and one on the way, sister to six great siblings — who could ask for more?

I’m not sure which blogging category I fit into. I read a lot of different kinds, but I am too shy to try and break into any of their groups for these reasons:

I’m a practicing catholic, but not much of a writer about it besides to say that I love my faith and I love to live it.

I am 100% pro-life.

I’m a mother, but have acquired the title so newly that I feel a bit intimidated by the older, more practiced women. I’m afraid I would come off inexperienced and a tad silly to them.  I have no words of mothering wisdom– those I tried to give before giving birth have come back to bite me. Hard.

I have suffered pregnancy loss. My first pregnancy was ectopic and resulted in a surgery that took more than my baby. But I was only six weeks along and had barely known I was pregnant. My grief, while real, is no where near those mothers who had stillbirths or infant loss.

I’m pretty passionate about living and eating sustainably.  It’s a growing focus and moving by baby steps, but I find it an important part of my life and the life of my family.

I don’t homeschool, although I was homeschooled myself. The schooling debate is still just that– a debate. And it’s mostly still in my head, my husband and I have only generally broached the topic.

I’m also not a teenager, emo, poetry writer, world traveler, homesteader, freebirther, evangelist, photographer, or the homemaker/crafter of the century.

For the time being I work outside the home, live in an apartment, have one annoying/adorable sheltie, and long for a garden.

My beautiful son goes to the best daycare I can afford and I don’t feel (too) guilty about it.

I would love as many children as God wishes to give me, but I often tell people I only want four.

That’s me in a really big nutshell.

Let’s be friends!

P.S. My posts have lots off typos because I am either holding a baby in one hand or typing on my phone.  Sorry in advance.

    You may remember me. My name is Anthony DeStefano and a few months ago my first children’s book was published—This Little Prayer of Mine.

    I‘ve also written a couple of bestselling non-fiction books—A Travel Guide to Heaven, and Ten Prayers God Always Says Yes To—both published by Doubleday.

    I’m writing to you because my second children’s book is now out! It’s a Christmas story called: Little Star.

    Little Star is a very simple retelling of the Nativity story which focuses on the star of Bethlehem—the smallest star in the heavens—who burns himself out to keep the newborn baby Jesus warm in a Bethlehem stable. My goal was to try to encapsulate the whole gospel message in a simple Christmas story, and to do so in a way that all kids could relate to.

    I was wondering if you would be willing to take a look at my book to see if it’s something that your readers might be interested in. I’d be happy to send you a free review copy, if you send me the best address to mail it to.

    Thanks very much, and an early Merry Christmas to you!



    PS: Here is the link to the press release for the book, which I thought you might like to read:
