Hi! I’m Martha, and welcome to my little experiment… I’m a very happy wife living in Southeastern Wisconsin, a new mom, and most importantly – someone just trying to stay true to herself through it all. This blog is meant to be a place to share, empower, occasionally gripe, and keep myself grounded. I love laughter, wine (mostly of the boxed variety) and people who don’t take themselves too seriously. My husband Casey is my love, my rock and my balance. My son Dane is the literal light of my life and makes my world turn. Blogging has quickly become my therapy and has given me a lot of peace. Thanks for dropping by!
Sarah is one of my oldest and dearest friends. We have the type of friendship that doesn’t need “maintenance” meaning, it’s easy and flows just as life does. She understands my heart more closely than a lot of people, and I couldn’t be more excited to welcome her to Staying Martha. I think her perspective is fresh, smart and passionate.
In her words:
Hello! First of all, let me start by saying how incredibly excited I am at this opportunity! Thank you so much, Martha, for allowing me to do two of my very favorite things: read and share my opinion!!
Reading has been my escape, my hobby, my favorite pastime since I could I pick up a book. I am not athletic or creative, so truly, reading is what I do as a reprieve from life.
I am the lucky mom of a 4 year-old avid reader, and it’s one of the things I am most proud of–her love of books and her obsession with “reading” already at such a young age. It’s not often you see her without a book in hand!
I absolutely look forward to sharing my love of books with you, and to help steer you in the direction of your next read. I spend more time than I’d like to admit perusing Amazon for books on a daily basis, and I am so glad that it’ll be for more than just me now!
