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), Thirteen 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 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.
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!
Our next big adventure starts in September of 2017 when Evan, Cooper and I head to the US on an 8 month (ish) RV adventure across the US. You will definitely want to tune in because there is no telling what crazy shenanigans the three of us will get in to (especially while trying to back up the trailer)! And did I mention that we are homeschooling this year too? I’m tired just thinking about it!
And sometimes, I just write about me. You see, I suffer from anxiety and sometimes being a mom and keeping up with life is not 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!
Oh, and this year I went through a breast reduction too. Thinking about one or wondering why the heck anyone would ever do that? Read my series on mine. Here is post 4 (but the post leading up to it are also linked at the begining).
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. Think you might want to work with me? Head over to my Work With Merry page to see examples of all the different ways we can work together. And please, let me hear from you! I am always looking for new ways to bring readers (and clients) value. I appreciate and respect your opinions, always.
