I'm Holly. A craft obsessed, home schooling, cookie & cupcake baking, photographer Mama to an incredible two year old named Collin. I know all us Moms say that, but in my case, it's true. The kid grows super boogers & farts like a 48 year old truck driver. So, I'm pretty much winning in that department. Birth story here.
I lost my oldest son, Liam, in August of 2008. You can read about him here. If you're here because you've lost a child or baby, I've compiled a list of resources that were essential for my healing (if there is such a thing) here.
I am married to a beardy bookworm named Jacob. I often refer to him as J or Manski because...well, we enjoy being cheesy. J & I eloped in Las Vegas, NV two weeks after he proposed & on the day I had a U-Haul filled to move from Las Vegas to Lucerne Valley, CA to be with him.
J has three kids of his own. MJ & Andi live with their Mom in Oxnard, CA & visit us as frequently as possible. Aiden is two & lives with us. He & Collin are BFFs & total brothers.
On any given day, you can pretty much count on me rocking the shit out of a top knot & red lipstick all while wearing my finest hole-ridden sweats. Who says sweats can't be faboosh?
J & I are pregnant with a baby girl. She is due at the end of January & we are both thrilled to add a girl to the mix here at Casa de Sosa.
I am passionate about writing, photography, crafting, baking & music. I've got lots of tattoos & I love art in all it's forms. I also use curse words here.
You're prolly gonna love me...or hate me. I prefer the former.
