Hay. I’m Mary Susan. I’m mama to four small babes, wife to a butcher/chef, native Texan, and Ohio dweller. I’m a Catholic convert, pseudo-homeschooler, book lover, and last-minute planner.

I believe in honesty and vulnerability. You’ll find both here…which means we might all laugh at the realities of life. We may all ugly cry, too. It’s a toss up.

I believe in prayer. I also believe that “Sweet Lord what have you done??!”  counts as a prayer in certain situations.

I believe in coffee. And wine. And sometimes both together because I like to mix my uppers and downers.

I believe that someday I’ll make it out of the eternal Survival Mode I currently find myself in. That day is probably not today. (See above.)


I’m glad you’re here. Really, really glad. And I hope your day is better for stopping by.


Mary Susan
