Mommy2SweetPeas Overseas! - Intro Post

 I’ve always wanted to write a blog, but never knew how to start my first post without sounding like a singles ad: “Hi, I’m Clarissa, I’m a taurus, I like long walks on the beach, etc.” I’ll try to spare you, but no promises!!
Like I said earlier, I’m Clarissa, and I’m a 31 year old wife and mom with 3 wonderful children and a great stepson. I am a slave to running, and cannot resist the siren song of the mermaid from Starbucks. My passion lies in photography. Ever since I was small, I have loved the camera (behind it of course!) I’m hoping that I get to share some of my favorite pictures here, if you’ll have me. (Please!) I pray that my photography gets published, or at least takes me to London. !

I live a few blocks from the Atlantic Ocean in New Jersey, better known as the Jersey Shore. To put it in perspective, I am about 45 min away from NYC. I love the beach, and all it has to give us. (Except the seagulls. They are rats with wings, but they are sometimes wonderful to look at. From afar.)

Cassie, 7
Sydney, 3
Grayson, 2
 Let me introduce you to my kids:

This is Cassie. She is turning 7 next week, but she is more like turning into a teenager! She is a clumsy one, constantly falling on her own 2 feet, but she is a whiz at sports. She can play baseball like her momma, and is in love with horseback riding.

Here is Sydney. At 3, almost 4, she is the shy and quiet one, until she is comfortable in her surroundings, then she is just as loud as they come! She is quite tiny, very much into gymnastics, and is one of the many that was enslaved by Frozen. (She goes by Elsa sometimes, and walks around with socks on her hands, which she calls her Elsa gloves.

I have one son, and his name is Grayson. At 2, he is every bit of a mommas boy! He is my muse, since he doesn’t mind the camera (much). He is a daredevil, always giving me a heart attack, including the day he was born, in which we both almost passed away (but more on that later).

My stepson Andrew is almost 13. He is quiet, and very much into video games. He is also quite talented with drawing. I bet he becomes an artist one day!

I hope I haven’t bored you. I have a giveaway with Freshly Picked moccasins coming up in the next post, so at least stick around for that!
