Meet / Contact Vanessa

Well now … how to condense the sum of who I think I am? For a start, how about this:

  • Christian
  • American
  • Woman
  • Wife
  • Mother
  • Conservative
  • Republican

But I can tell you this much, set aside your preconceived notions of those things because I probably won’t fit your stereotypes.  Often we only really know how to define ourselves, or others, by the labels.  So these are my chosen labels.

In addition to the above:

  • Homeschool Mom
  • Homebirth Mom
  • California Native
  • Gardener
  • Reader
  • Tech Enthusiast
  • INFJ
  • Coffee Drinker
  • LOLCats Fan
  • Camaro Enthusiast (mostly ’67-’69)
  • Rock & Roll fan
  • Geek
  • Dork
  • Wannabe soap-lotion-shampoo-maker
  • Sometime smart-alec who laughs at her own lame jokes because no one else will
  • Bronze medalist in the Foot-in-Mouth Games
  • Often klutzy
  • Usually boring
  • Always listening to the thoughts inside my head.

Favorite Quotes

  • There’s no such thing as a chicken knife.
  • This too shall pass.

But wait there’s more!

I’ll let you know when I remember it.  😉

In the meantime, there’s my blog: Vanessence | Essentially Vanessa

Thanks for visiting!  Have a cupcake!  🙂


If you need to contact me for any reason, here’s the place to do it!  Y’know, other than the standard blog post comment box.  This would be for those more private comments.  🙂

    1. Why thank you Jacob! I am flattered, and honored, to be in the top 3 of your top 10 of new and interesting blogs for this, the last day of May, 2015. 🙂

      Happy blogging back to you!


  1. “Sometime smart-alec who laughs at her own lame jokes because no one else will”. OMG that is so meee!!! 😀 We are superior intellectuals and not many people can understand us I tell you. Love your About page and can’t wait to read more of your work 🙂

    1. Thanks, Jen! I figured I’d go with Bronze, because Gold kind of implied that I was good/witty/not awkward at it. 😉

      Now I’m thinking I should have just gone with “Honorable Mention.”


  2. Check – check – check… Bwahahaha: Bronze medalist in foot in mouth games! Ahhh! ’67 – ’69 Camaro – one of the premiere American Muscle cars. But are you a fan because they’re simply that cool or because you bought one new? My dream car is still a ’69 Dodge Charger (Daytona: 426 Hemi with 0.29 Cd – What!), Oasis tan leather interior (red’s acceptable), custom white mother-of-pearl exterior with um-teen coats of lacquer; “Pegasus.” I’m glad to meet you!

    1. Oh goodness, you sound like so much fun! 😀

      No, I never had the pleasure or pride of actually owning a late 60s Camaro, it’s always been just a dream car because they are that cool. My husband always tells me I’m going to get whiplash when I see one go by while we’re out and about.

      You’re not the first girl I’ve known who had a thing for that Charger with the 426 Hemi! That beast can roar! But that white mother-of-pearl paint job, that’s what I want too! That is just too funny! 😀

      Pleasure to meet you, too! 😀
