Welcome! I’m so glad you’re here. My name is Vida. That’s V(i)-dah, Hebrew for “beloved one”, not VEE-dah, Spanish for “life” . . . although, honestly, I will answer to either.
I am a woman of exhausting opposites trying to find balance in this crazy life. I am a former ballerina/cowgirl/paralegal, turned full-time wife/mother, part-time work-from-home transcriptionist, all-the-time homeschooling activist wannabe, Christian/Conservative who is totally disgusted with what comes to mind when many people think “Christian/Conservative.”
I am California dreamin’ of returning to the East Coast someday soon, but am currently involved in a ridiculous love affair with San Francisco. I find peace in books, gardening, playing piano, and starting sewing projects that I do not finish. I find beauty in ballet, French country, anything made of copper, and most of all my sweet daughter, who looks nothing of me and everything of her father . . . seriously I keep waiting for someone to stop me in the grocery store on suspicion of kidnapping.
Interests include the aforesaid homeschooling, English lit., a recent enthusiasm for converting my family to “real food,” a minor fascination with quantum physics (even though I am HO-rrendous at math), the fantasy that one day I will learn French by osmosis, and fueling my addiction to coffee.
Most of all, I am thankful e.v.e.r.y.d.a.y. for God’s truly amazing grace that gets me through.
