Hi there! I’m so happy you’re were curious enough to go and check out who’s behind this personal blog. You may already have found out that an omnivorous enthousiast, writing about parenting, food, fitness and going out and about with kids. It’s just me to a T: I don’t like it, I LOVE it, I love it ALL and I LOVE ALL OF IT. The Facebook like thumb is way to modest for my taste.
Same goes the other way around though: I don’t dislike it, o no! I hate it, I denounce it, I despise it. I try to keep it civilized but I can’t help having those strong opinions. And I’m too loud mouthed to keep it in. The laughter that is. And okay, my opinions too. Oh, and don’t forget the tears. I cry over watching soap operas is how melodramatic I am. But I’m digressing. Where are my manners? Let me introduce myself properly.
My real life name is Irene, but everybody calls me Finkelstein. Being a mom of two boys really woke the Queen Bee in me as I’m being worshipped by all the men in my household. Too bad worshipping doesn’t equal obeying! Planning in general, family planning in particular isn’t really my talent and now I’m stuck with a toddler and a teen. I don’t know why I thought that was a good idea. O wait. I didn’t think about that one. On the other hand, I have a lot of ideas. I ooze ideas and I love trying them out. That is why some may call me impulsive, short attention spanned or whimsical. You could also call me a hyperfocused and serially committed action heroine.
Finkelstein and Sons is first and foremost a journal of all of my whims: running or cycling or photography or vegan food or baking or writing or traveling or challenges or whatnot. A lot of them are family related, but as a true Queen Bee I write about family free stuff too. Life is just too much fun to only be a mom. On the other hand, with this journal, I want to record those moments that in retrospect will proof that a life with boys is a joy. Even when it’s not. Because it is.
You made it to here, yay! I’m humbled and happy you made it this far down the page. So why not take the next step and follow this blog? Press follow if you have a WordPress account or subscribe with e-mail at the bottom of this page.
