Hey there! My name is Bonnie. Welcome, welcome, welcome!

You guys, allow me to introduce myself. The basics are that I am a writer, baker, speaker, and homemaker. I love the Blessed Trinity, my Catholic faith, Masterpiece Theater, music, and taking out my feelings on dough. I'm from the Midwest - born and raised in Central Illinois - and my husband and I are about to celebrate our 11th wedding anniversary. We had seven kids in nine years and our home is happy, loud, and seasonally decorated. I love my busy, joyful, little life. 

On my blog, A Knotted Life, I chat about movies, kids, books, faith, celebrations, school, losing weight, sleep, a lack of sleep, and recipes. In short, I talk about life.  Just like in my living room, some of  the conversations on my blog are light - almost fluff - and some are really personal and sincere. To give you a better feel for who I am in my little corner of the blogosphere here's the most popular posts on my blog and a list of my favorite blogs.

I am a devotion writer for Blessed Is She; co-host of the now retired Visitation Project radio show; and host of the Sheenazing Blogger Awards. Additionally, I've been able to travel around the country giving talks on my son's alleged miracle, Fulton Sheen, and a variety of other topics. I love Instagram and Facebook and I'm pretty good at connecting with people there.

In the end, what I really want to say is thanks for stopping by and I hope you feel very welcome here. Feel free to introduce yourself, look around a bit, and enjoy or roll your eyes at my taste in music. If you want to get in touch here's how.
