about me

It feels a bit awkward that I am finally starting my blog..Good-awkward, exciting-awkward but a bit scary as well. I’ve heard that once you start, you get addicted to it. Let’s see….

English is my third language so please be a bit understanding and not too judgmental when it comes to putting my thoughts into (correct) writing.

First, let me tell you a bit about myself. I am half Greek, half German. After working for 10 years as a travel agent, I decided to quit my job and focus on raising my son. 2 1/2 years later my daughter came and made our family complete! For the last five years I have been a stay at home mom………..I thought it would have been the easiest, most delightful thing in the world. Boy WAS I WRONG! Parenting, 24/7 parenting that is, is like riding on a roller-coaster! It is beautiful, challenging, mesmerizing, hard, wonderful, exhausting, uplifting, thrilling etc.

I would like to use this blog to share with you some of my thoughts, crafts and recipes which put a smile on my face and take me through another (wonderfully challenging) day!

    Hey Tatu, I’ve been enjoying your posts. What do you think about writing a guest post for Field Notes from Fatherhood?

    • wonderlandbytatu March 8, 2013 at 7:23 pm #

      I would love to! Tell me what you want me to do.

        Whatever you like! A travel piece about any interesting destination would be great, or a any aspect of parenting would work too. It’s up to you!

        how short/long would you like it to be? when do you need it? shall I send it to you via email?

      • mmtread March 10, 2013 at 8:20 pm #

        Anything between 600 and 1200 words I think would be great. No deadline, but sometime in the next week or two would be good. Just send it as an email attachment, along with any photos to go with it.
