A little bit about me

This post may contain affiliate links. Please read our disclosure policy here.

So if you clicked on the button, you must be just a bit curious about me (really?). My name is Mique (yes, like the Mouse, no it’s not my given name. But I won’t divulge that info here. I have gone by the name Mique my entire life) and I am a stay at home mom to my 3 crazy kiddos- 2 boys, 1 girl. My husband I have been married for 12 years this summer. We have had a life full of adventures. Our oldest was diagnosed with autism at 2 (he is now 10) so that has definitely steered our path in a different direction than we ever anticipated. I have a sweet spot for anything related to autism (and special needs in general). I try my darndest to maintain peace in a chaotic household and often times fail. My kids have the ability to make me laugh and cry at the same time. Life wouldn’t be worth it without them or my husband.

Growing up, I always thought I didn’t have any talents (unless you call being able to recognize people’s voices on the phone…..hmm…..). Sure I could sorta do some stuff. But nothing outright amazing. I couldn’t sing well. Dancing was not my forte either. I wasn’t the smartest or the prettiest. I hung right in the middle of average.
As I’ve gotten older and grown into myself, I’ve realized that everyone has talent (even if it IS voice recognition). One of my (admittedly weird) talents is my determination. And yes, that can be a good thing and a bad thing.
How does any of this relate to 30days? Well back when I started blogging, I found that there was a whole world online. Full of ideas. Brimming with creativity. And I wanted to know how to do some of that stuff. 30days came about because I wanted a place to store all my ideas. I was determined to learn how to sew, embroider, be a better photographer, and much much more.
It’s amazing that I have actually learned how to do that stuff. Am I the best at? No. Do I have room for improvement? Heck yes. But I love being able to create something all my own. And I’m assuming if you happened upon 30days, you probably do too.
Some of my favorite things (besides my family) include: drives along the beach, the color red, crafty blogs, photography, a good bean and cheese burrito, laundry that is caught up (HA!) and fun fabric.
Thanks for stopping by. Feel free to browse around, email me if you have questions or comment away.
