Welcome to The Petit Voice with Allison Czarnecki! As you might have guessed, I’m Allison. Allison Czarnecki. This is my new Babble Voices blog, and I’m so excited about it; it’s great to have another home in addition to my lifestyle blog Petit Elefant where I can share my slice of life with you.
A little bit about me: I’m a happily married thirty-something (I’ll never tell) mother of two kids, a girl and a boy. My daughter is a teenager and my son is 5 years her junior, an elementary school attendee. I’m married to my college boyfriend (well, the one who made the final cut) who’s fresh off the boat from Warsaw, Poland. We met in Idaho, of all places, and I think he’s the dreamiest Slovak of them all. We’ve been married for 15 years and live in a small-ish town outside of Salt Lake City, Utah with our two kids, a black cat I hate, and a horse named Reuben (Reuben isn’t allowed in the house).
I’m primarily a writer, but I’m also a fashion stylist and makeup artist for print and commercial (magazines and commercials). My main priority in life is my husband and two kids, followed closely by my unsavory addiction to network television.
I love writing almost as much as I love to travel, but neither as much as a frosty Diet Dr Pepper over crushed ice. I have Lupus, an stupid autoimmune disease (my pet name for it is #stupidlupus) which means I spend a lot of time parenting from bed (see above re: addiction to TV) and / or my steam shower when I’m not running swim team carpool.
My kids are smart and hilarious when they aren’t being naughty,(my family is horrible when taking photos especially when taken by world class professionals) and my house is only clean 33.7% of the time. Mostly when we’re on vacation. Welcome to The Petit Voice.
