Welcome to Merry About Town! Here is a bit about me, Merry of Merry About Town.
Hi! I’m Merry (yes, that is really my name on my passport), Fourteen years ago I moved to Calgary, AB, Canada from Texas (I’m originally from Alabama). I decided to start blogging so that my family could keep up with my new life in a new country. They never read it but, crazily enough, other people did. Through the years I figured out that I love writing and sharing online.
A blogger was born.
My blogging life has taken quite a few twists and turns. I’ve decided to write about what I love….my life. That means that you’ll find my blog to be a bit all over the place, just like me.
I write about my family, including my husband, Dewey, my son, Evan, and my two stepkids, Will and Nicole.
Oh, and you can’t forget everyone’s favourite dog, Cooper.
And our newest additions, Taffy and Gumdrop the guinea pigs.
I also write about the family friendly recipes that I make to feed to the fam (why do they need to eat EVERY. SINGLE. DAY?). No fussy, super fancy recipes here!
While we were away, Evan and I rekindled our love of Disney. We spent three months in Florida visiting Disney very chance we got. So, I write about Disney too.
And sometimes, I just write about me. You see, I suffer from anxiety and being a mom and keeping up with life is not always that easy. I don’t sugar coat it and I don’t hide from it. Instead I write about the good, the bad and the ugly because I know that there are many, many others out there that suffer just like me. I am not alone and neither are you!
And last, but not least, I recently rolled the site Best Birthdays into Merry About Town. Check out posts highlighting Calgary birthday venues,, Easy DIY, and party food. Pardon our progress as we continue to work to get the posts folded into Merry About Town.
So have a seat, pour a glass of wine (or tea) and have a look around. We strive to keep it real around here. Family recipes, real family travel and plain talk. We don’t do perfect, we do real. I hope you will join us!
