Greetings and salutations! My name is Frema (rhymes with Breema). Except...not really. It was my nickname in college, and my first choice for an alias when I started this blog in 2004. But now with Facebook, Twitter, etc., the cat, she is out of the bag. Bree here, great to meet you.
Originally from Chicago, I live in the Indianapolis area with my husband, Luke, and our three little kids. I work full-time in marketing communications while Luke holds down the fort at home. (Yes, we are all kinds of progressive.) I write about faith, family, and the messy process of living brave and daring greatly, with a little help from my favorite shame researcher.
This blog has a zillion categories, but if you're new, a couple don't make sense out of context. They are:
Tragic Love Friday: The online record of Love, Betrayal and a Baby, a baby-momma drama I wrote in high school. It launched during National Blog Posting Month (NaBloPoMo) in 2006, complete with commentary on lil' Frema's writing style, and finished in August 2007. If you were hooked on Aaron Spelling dramas, you will adore this, I promise.
Parental Discretion Advised: From July 2007 to August 2009, I wrote a blog called (what else) "Parental Discretion Advised" for Parents.com, posting three times a week about my experience with pregnancy and new motherhood. I started the blog when I was in my second trimester with Kara; when it was retired in 2009, Kara was almost two and Nathan was seven months. The Powers That Be allowed me to republish 15 entries on my personal blog, so that's what you'll find here. The time stamps reflect the original posting date.
I love Jesus, pens, books, #Read26Indy, spinach dip, running thinking about when I used to run walking, Once Upon a Time, Friends and Scrubs, speaking in hashtags, Ben and Jerry's Chunky Monkey, cheesy love songs, Tori Amos, Brandi Carlile, and Brené Brown. I have zero interest in the Kardashians. #ThanksForStoppingBy
