Hi! Welcome to the 2010 Blizzard Bloghop!
I'm Satakieli, a 24 year old Brit. I was born in Kent, lived in Cambridgeshire for most of my life and moved to Nottingham at age 19. At age 20 I met the love of my life, who happened to be a U.S. Soldier deployed to Kosovo at the time.
So fast forward a few years and now I'm an Army Wife, currently stationed in Heidelberg, Germany after a few years in Texas. Sometimes I feel like I don't fit in with a lot of Army Wives, but that's ok because I'm busy carving out my own little niche.
More on mine and my husbands story here and here.
We have a 2 year old boy, who is the most amazing creature to grace the planet... even if he does drive me crazy on occasion. He's also quite the ladykillerwith those big ol' eyes and sweet smile.
This is him wearing his personally chosen attire for the day. There's about 5 layers there.
He was born in Texas, premature at 32 weeks weighing 4lbs 6oz, and spent one month in hospital because he couldn't work out how to hold his own body temperature or the complicated processes of eating and breathing. I basically lived at the hospital for the first month. Bringing him home was the scariest, we were so afraid he would just stop breathing like he had done in the hospital.
Mikey at one day old. He's just a little bigger than that package of baby wipes in the bottom right corner. He has wrinkly old man knees.
But now he's over 2 years old, with those chubby legs you'd never know he was born so tiny, and with how loud he can be you'd never know that he once had trouble breathing.
I like to read lots and lots of books, travel (even if it's to nowhere particularly "exciting" or far away), drink tea and write sometimes.
I like to take photos
I love to cook
and I like to make things with my hands
