Meet Alfa


[name] Alfa. Yes that is my name. And no, I don’t have a sibling named Beta. (I get that joke A LOT!)

[age] 32 (birthday – Sept. 27) and a fun fact is that I share my birthday with my dad! Yup. I steal his thunder every year.

[about me] I live out in Austin, Texas with my best friend and husband, Rudra, and together we have two beautiful babies. All three of  them are the center of my universe, and I’m positive that they are the reason for my daily dose of happiness.
I’m a lover of food, red wine, and really good chocolate. Always been a muffin gal instead of cupcakes. I need coffee as much as I need oxygen. I talk way too much, and I’m pretty sure I can have an opinion on anything (which can sometimes result in “foot in mouth” syndrome). I have an obsession with rain and thunderstorms. I have an ongoing infatuation with travel, books, and mismatched coffee mugs. My biggest addiction however is Gilmore Girls. Don’t judge.
I always have never-ending projects going on because of my obsession with Pinterest and home decor are out of control, which thankfully the hubs tolerates with a gracious smile! My mind runs a mile a minute, and there are days I have no idea how to shut it off!

[about my blog] I started writing this blog in March 2013 to document my first pregnancy so that my friends and family members all over the world could feel connected to us while we went through this amazing journey. Once I realized how much I enjoyed blogging, I knew that I wanted to keep writing to share my stories about mommyhood and parenting blunders/successes with my readers. Over the past few years, I’ve started writing more and more about my recipes, DIY projects, home-decor, and whatever else is running through my head. I’m so thankful to have this little corner of the internet to document our life and all the little things that come with it.

Welcome to my life! 

Grab some coffee (or vino!) and stay a while!
