Hi! I’m Gingi. I’m a photographer, cosplayer, amateur chef, crazy cat lady, anime otaku, bookworm, generic geek, world traveler, conservative Christian, devoted wife and stay at home new mother of a precious baby girl.
I am just beginning my journey into the domestic realm. I am a crunchy mom in that I feed my daughter exclusively on donor breast milk (I can’t produce my own), I babywear, I use all natural homemade products on my daughter and in my home, I don’t vaccinate, I use holistic remedies and I intend to homeschool. This blog is the record of my discoveries and projects as I strive to balance my apron-clad Martha Stewart-esque family life with my nerdy indulgences.
In the summer of 2008 my life changed when I attended a wedding where I saw a really, really, REALLY cute guy. I was too shy to introduce myself and ended up spending the next few months regretting not being the outgoing flirt that I usually am and missing the chance to learn this guys name. A couple months later, at the midnight release of World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King in Anaheim, California, I ran into the cute guy again. After learning his name and weeks of stalking him on Facebook (What?! He’s a nerdy Christian conservative geek like me?!), and a generous amount of bullying for a sushi and coffee date, Jonathan Freeman and I fell madly in love and have been inseparable ever since.
Our relationship is unique in that we are equally passionate about our nerdy pursuits, the finer things in life and our Christ-centered domestic domicile. We like to think of ourselves as cultured geeks. It’s not unusual for us to pair a nice wine and cheese and then settle down for an evening of anime and crafting EVA foam armor for cosplay projects.
In October of 2012 we got married in a beautiful small ceremony among the lampposts and Spanish moss in Jackson Square Park in New Orleans, Louisiana. In January of 2013 we discovered that we’re expecting our precious daughter Tessa. And on June 4, 2013 my husband left for Great Lakes, Illinois to attend basic training for the Navy. He graduated August 2nd, and we are now in Pensacola, Florida for his A School… all ready to start our new life as a Navy family!
On September 10, 2013 my precious baby girl was born at 9:34am, weighing 7 pounds 3 ounces and measuring 20 inches long. She is the most amazing creature to ever grace the planet. I will never know what I did to deserve such an amazing little blessing.
So! My handsome husband and I are embarking on married life, parenthood, a Navy career and a new home all at once, along with our five cats and golden retriever.
I intend to blog about anything and everything that is relevant to chronicle my attempts to be a supermom, stay at home wife, homeschooler and geek girl! If you’d like to get ahold of me – questions, comments, just to chat, whatever – drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org!
