The Daughter and The Mom live in The Seattle Suburbs. They love to be at The BeachHouse, eat sushi, sing, and read.
The past 4 years have been kinda rough, but they’re making it through. Some of the stuff that has happened: The Mom got divorced from The Dad. It got ugly. The Mom has tried to keep it from being ugly. Most of the time she feels that she is not succeeding in this effort. The Daughter tries to stay below the radar. She is in the middle of 6th grade. She has entered the fun times of Pre Teen Drama. One day at a time they both realize they’re still OK.
After seeking her own solace on the blogosphere, The Mom thought it would be good for both Mom and Daughter to record their journey together. The Names will always be changed to protect the innocent and the use of images will be carefully considered. Most of all, The Mom and The Daughter want to write their way back to a place of deeper joy, fuller understanding, and a few laughs to make it fun.
