My name is Aura, and I would like to welcome you to my blog. I have decided to put it together because I am currently a stay-at-home mom who’s trying to raise her children as best as possible. I used to work in an art gallery where I even hosted a show of my own paintings. In my spare time, I enjoy going birdwatching and telling my kids all about the various bird species that can be found near New York. As such, I will be documenting my tiny adventures with the kids and tell you all about my hobbies. Take this blog as a journal, if you want to, because sometimes I feel the need to talk to somebody about my artsy dreams and aspirations and I don’t want to make it difficult for my loved ones to bear with me in this sense.
I know that I’m supposed to be realistic as my husband tells me, and since he’s the provider in our family now, I’m supposed to take care of the kids, keep the home tidy, and get everything ready for when he comes to the house. He’s pretty busy because he’s a project manager in a big corporation, and so he travels a lot and I’m left all alone with the kids. We have a little boy and a daughter and I love them dearly, but sometimes, it gets a bit frustrating that I can’t rely on my husband for anything related to the children.
One day, when the children will have gone to school, my dream is to open a gallery of my own, where I can showcase some of my paintings. Despite having majored in art history, I don’t think of myself as a talented artist. I’m trying to better myself however I can so that I progress both in life and in my hobbies and pastimes.
I hope that this post isn’t too sad or doesn’t give you the wrong impression about my life. I enjoy being with the kids especially when we go outdoors and look at the wonders of nature. I’ve bought two small binoculars especially for my boy and daughter and have a full-size one that I use, as well. Despite the fact that I hate the whole idea of hunting, I found that a pair of good binoculars for this specific purpose was the right one to get. You can do wonders with such a model as the optics involved in the construction are high-quality and will allow you to see your subjects even at dusk or dawn.
In the hope that you’ll enjoy my outdoors adventures,
Aura, a New Yorker and aspiring artist
