Hi! I’m Annie Reneau—mother to three children, passionate defender of my morning coffee, serious fan of chocolate and the Seahawks, and proud owner of this here blog. I write about the delights and disasters of motherhood with heartfelt honesty and humor, because there’s just no other way to do it. My writing has been featured on Scary Mommy, BlogHer, Simple Homeschool, Patheos, and Brilliant Star. If you’re interested in working with me, I can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Still here and want to know more? Alrighty, here we go . . .
I have a fantabulous husband who does more than his fair share of cooking and mops all of our floors. (It pays to marry a janitorial contractor’s son, ladies.) We have three kids who are at once amazing, awesome, frustrating, irritating, goofy, messy, and miraculous (as all children are). You can meet them here.
I am a Bahá’í. I love my faith and enjoy sharing the joys and challenges of belonging to a minority religion. For example, delicious potlucks with fare from around the world = joy. Explaining to my kids why certain people might tell them they’re going to hell, despite the fact that we believe in Jesus = challenge. You can read a bit about my spiritual journey here.
I am a teacher. I used to teach other people’s high school kids English, but now I teach my own moppets everything. Well, not everything, but close. The reasons we chose to homeschool are outlined here.
I’m also a writer for Brilliant Star, a magazine that helps kids explore their roles as world citizens. Technically, my job title is “Assistant Editor,” but most of my job is writing and brainstorming. I love my job. Juggling it with everything else can be tricky, but I can’t imagine giving it up.
Our family spent a year during 2013-2014 living like nomads around the U.S. More about that here.
I love dark chocolate. If I die eating a See’s Dark Chocolate Bordeaux, I will die a happy woman. I don’t have a link for that. It’s just a fact.
