About Charys

The about page is always the hardest post to make. How do I sum up who I am in a short blurb? Bullet points? Concise sentences? Fill in the blank mad lib style paragraphs? As you read my blog and watch my blogs, you surely get a sense for who I am.

On the shortlist, I am a wife, mother to a warrior princess with an extra chromosome, teacher, yoga enthusiast and arts and crafts lover.

I am also a licensed makeup artist and all things makeup-y are on my blog 3CMakeup.com

Why I blog (from my first post):

It’s not an easy thing to start and keep an active blog, especially a public on (yes, they can be private). So why start (another) one? Well, when I became pregnant I felt that I hadn’t read a lot about how I was feeling. That led me to believe that perhaps there was someone else out there having the same experience. If I were to share my story, then that other person wouldn’t feel so alone.

I’ve also gotten a lot of strength, courage and emotional relief reading what others have shared. If I can be that for even just one other person, I’ll feel I’ll have paid it forward. I guess it’s the helper in me (which made me become a teacher). I want to share it all in the hopes that others can too me strengthened, supported, lifted and relieved. Cuz life can be tough but you don’t have to do it all alone.
