The New Girl

Hello lovelies. My name is Krishann. Today I am feeling like the new girl on the first day of school; a little anxious and hopeful that somehow I will find my way around here and make some friends in the process.

My Family Portrait

I am a wife and mommy to two sweet angels who I often refer to as my Little Miss and Littlest Miss. I am a Child Welfare professional currently living my dream while on maternity leave being at home with my family and writing. Laundry is not a part of this dream but it happens regularly.

When I go back to work my dreams will be shattered. No, not really, I’ll just have to make some adjustments and make the most of the time I do have with my loves and of course keep writing.

I’m feeling a little more brave these days so here at Strollerderby I will be writing about love, sex, and relationships. Although I am married, deeply in love with my husband, and produced two very cute kids (and we all know how babies are made) I’m no expert and will never claim to be one.

I am a cornball, so I have been told. I laugh at my own (attempts at) jokes and I’ve been accused of being a nerd. Sometimes I am “too nice” (is that possible?). I err on the self-conscious side but I am working on that; (I often refer to myself as a work in progress) and each day make it my mission to fall in love with myself over and over again. It’s taken me years to get to a place where I can hold my head up and be proud of the woman I am despite my past mistakes. While my past does not define me it has helped shaped me into the person I am today.

I’m a lover and occasionally I am a fighter. I am most often a fighter when it comes to pursuing my dreams, advocating for something I feel strongly about, and when my husband pretends he is sleeping when I am asking him a question. I’m human and I believe in transparency. I often spill my guts but am in search of finding a happy medium between over-sharing and holding back.

What I desire is to share glimpses of the things I learn and sometimes experience with regards to love, sex, and relationships in hopes to help you be entertained, become more informed, and when appropriate start a dialogue at home with your own partner. Just don’t start it saying, “We need to talk.” From what I gather, not all spouses like to hear those words before a conversation.

For those that know me and are blushing over the fact that I am writing this column; yes, my mother knows the subject matter. I reminded her that ladies and Christians (my faith is a huge part of who I am) have sex too; that’s how she got her beloved grandchildren. So I am in the clear. More importantly, my husband has given me his full support so long as I don’t post any embarrassing photos of him.

I am so happy to be here with you all that I’ve done several happy dances. I hope that I can contribute something positive to your everyday and get to know each of you a little better. So please talk to me.  Invite me to sit with you at lunchtime. Remember I am new here.  Tell me what stories or topics you’d love to read about and if you are a writer/blogger be sure to link to your blog so I can come visit.

I am striving to find joy in my journey, my journey meaning life. This right here is a part of what I refer to as my journey and doing it is giving me such joy.

So lovely to meet you.
