About Me

Whenever I talk about myself I usually end up talking about everything BUT myself.  This is no exception.  I always end up talking about my kids because they are my life.  

My name is Alex (Alexandra) and I'm 30 years old.  Jason (34) is my hubby.  We've been together since 2001.  We both grew up in South Central Pennsylvania (where we currently reside).  I have 4 kids: Zachary Clark is 11.  Amara Evelyn is 7.  I found her name one day (before I knew she was a girl) and decided on the spot that it was going to be HER name!  Evelyn is her daddy's late grandmother's name.  Jonas Robert is 5.  He is named after my late grandfather Robert.  Henry Sebastian is my 2 year old baby.  I love them and their names as much as I did the first day.  

Back to me.  I love reading, writing, talking, exploring, movies and tv, spending time with my family, food and all things environmentally-friendly.  I live on the outskirts of a small city, with the tiniest back yard and only one bathroom.  My dream home would have gorgeous wood floors (or good imitations), the biggest wraparound porch, a big backyard, 4 or more climbing trees (so each kid could have one to call their own) and a body of water within view of the window over my kitchen sink.  Of course, this dream home would be surrounded by great neighbors, because I get lonely and love company. 

I also blog at  It's, quite obviously, a blog for families in York, Pennsylvania.  If it's free or cheap, fun and family-friendly I share it with my readers.  Not very useful if you don't live nearby but very useful to those that do!  

What else...I'm a stay-at-home mom, pto volunteer, very nervous around people I don't know.  I don't know what I want to be when I grow up.  I'm sure I'm missing something.
