Hi There and welcome to my blog!
My name is Natalie but everyone in my life calls me Nat. I’m a twenty something wife to a wonderful husband, a mom to an energetic four year old boy, and a dog mom to a 5 year old red doberman living in the DC’s suburbs.
I moved to the DMV area in 2009 and a couple of years later, I met the love of my life, whom I finally married in 2017! Before becoming a mom, I graduated college with a communications degree and worked in Capitol Hill for two years.
Then, in 2015, my handsome and smart son was born and I became a stay-at-home mom. It’s the most demanding yet rewarding job I’ve ever had, and I wouldn’t change anything about it.
Some fun facts about me:
-I speak three languages fluently.
-I’ve lived in 4 countries (El Salvador, Spain, USA, and Guatemala.)
-I’ve traveled to 4/7 continents, and visited 25 countries & 22 states in the USA.
-I’m a wine enthusiast and a coffee connoisseur.
-I really really really love brunch.
-I LOVE cooking but hate baking so I’ll cook you a gourmet meal with hors d’oeuvres, main dish and several side dishes but you will have to bring dessert.
-I plan and host events/brunches almost every week. I love entertaining!
-I’m obsessed with the Bachelor franchise and Survivor.
-I love crafting, scrapbooking, and bulletin journaling.
-My husband and I have been together for 6 years and married in 2017 at a beautiful destination wedding in Lake Atitlan.
-My family and I split our time between the USA and Guatemala at least until my son starts kindergarten next year.
-I’m a dog person, and my first child was a handsome red doberman named Rojo (Red in Spanish.)
-I love True Crime stories so both my podcast and book lists are creepy haha.
-I don’t like sports except for baseball and soccer (you know, the original football) and my favorite team ever is the Baltimore Orioles.
