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

My husband and I are about to celebrate our 11th wedding anniversary. We had seven kids in nine years; our oldest is now nine and attends parochial school. Additionally we have one climbing on everything, one in Pre-K4, one in kindergarten, one in first grade, one in second grade, and one super cute baby. Our first baby was lost due to miscarriage and I spent the first four years of parenthood suffering from postpartum depression. I live in small town Illinois and I'm in my mid thirties.

 I'm a writer, bakerspeaker, and homemaker. I love music, baking, decorating, and being Catholic. You can read more random stuff about me here, here, and here. In case you're interested, here's my favorite blogs and the most popular posts on my blog. 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.

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. 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.

P.P.S. - This so totally represents me and how I am. LOL
