Hi, I’m Christie. I am currently a part-time stay at home mom to a 3- year old and wife of seven years. I currently live in Central Virginia and have lived here all of my life. I am passionate about all things relating to living and raising a family naturally. As a busy wife and mama, I am also pursuing a Bachelors in Science in Health and Wellness from Kaplan University online. I have about 8 more classes to go. Once I am done, I would love to become an alternative health and wellness coach.
As an African-American woman, I am troubled by the predominate media stereotypes of other women of color, in particular the Black woman, especially as it concerns marriage and family. Therefore, I am committed to doing my part to normalize the perception of Black women as highly educated, health-conscious wives and mothers with stable families.
I will also feature information relevant to those in interracial relationships, another topic that is close to home as my husband and I are in an interracial marriage.
I have wanted to give this blog thing a try for a while now, but am extremely private and didn’t know where to start. Here goes to overcoming my shyness! Hope you enjoy and are entertained and enlightened.
