Who is the face behind Cuppa Whimsy?
My name is Marietta. I’m a 30-something mom of four. I am also a wife, a writer, an artist, a dreamer, and a witch. Trying my best to live my life authentically.
I love evenings in front of my TV with my loved ones. I love making pretty things. I love geeking out over things that are awesome but unimportant. I also love pretending that the maid is on her way and that Benedict Cumberbatch thinks I’m pretty. But most of all, I love my family!
I’ve struggled, in the past, with taking my own needs for granted. It has cost me dearly. I still sometimes have to remind myself that my needs are just as important as everyone else’s, but most days I do pretty well. I am passionate about helping other moms remember to take care of themselves too!
I am just as passionate about taking care of those I love and they take care of me too!
I wouldn’t be the person I am today without my clan. They are my world and I don’t know what I would do without them!
My Hubby, or E, is the biggest clown of the bunch! He’s always making me smile. I am one of the lucky ones because I found my soulmate in him! As for the monkeys, er, I mean, kids, they definitely keep me on my toes! My oldest, N, aka The Boy, is 15. He loves computers and is always making random jokes. My oldest girl, A, or The Diva, is 11. She loves music, art, and bossing people around. M, my middle girl, aka Peach, is 7. She is a sweetheart and tends to be a bit of a wild child, and, of course, loves doing what her big sister does. F, or Pixie, is my youngest and is almost as much of a clown as her Daddy. She loves Peppa Pig, dancing, and her siblings.
Well, that is me in a nutshell. I am so happy you stopped by and I hope you can be inspired and have some fun here on Cuppa Whimsy!
