Hello, I’m so glad you’re interested in the Oaxacaborn blog!
I’m the Senior Editor at Babiekins Magazine and also work as a PR Consultant with Babiekins Media, but I’ve been running my personal blog, Oaxacaborn, for well over a decade. I was born in Mexico (as the name of this blog implies), and spent my early childhood in the former Yugoslavia before spending the rest of my formative years in Michigan, Wisconsin, and California. My artist-husband and five-year-old wild child now make our home in Orlando, Florida, where I write and edit from my home office in between driving back and forth from Chinese school and piano/voice lessons, and dreaming of my eventual memoir.
Writing and Editing
I started with Babiekins Magazine as a contributing writer, moved on to a Copy Editor role, and now am the Senior Editor of the magazine, doing both writing and interior styling. (You can see my full writing portfolio here.) I also provide brand and imaging consulting and marketing strategy support and as a PR Consultant for Babiekins Media.
On this blog, I share personal essays and original brand collaborations. In addition to these essays on Christian motherhood (like this one on Epiphany, dirty bathrooms and hallowed ground), I also blog about homeschooling, adoption and international humanitarian issues, interiors, design and decor, and the children’s fashion and decor world. And every year in November and December, I do an extensive Scandinavian Christmas series that is extremely popular. I blog with an international perspective, so visitors to this site are from around the world.
