Welcome! I’m Dana, and Kiss my List is my personal blog. You have probably clicked on this page to find out a little about this site, and to decide if it’s worth sticking around.
So let’s get to it.
Who Am I?
I’m Jean Valjean! If you get this reference, we are soul mates! But really:
I’m like my blog – many different faces, but always celebrating life.
Why should you stick around?
Like when you finally clean under your sofa, you’ll find a little bit of everything here.
Humor is all around us, and I love making people smile with a witty anecdote, wry observations, or random silliness. If you close the tab after reading and you have a smile on your face, I consider it a win.
Once I wrote an entire post from the perspective of my feet.
I am the mother to two teenagers, so there are no stories about potty training, tantrums or Elf on the Shelf. Gwen and James get veto power in terms of what I write and the photos I post, but I do share sometimes.
My advice for my college-bound daughter will probably never be heeded, but I had to try.
Parenting is a tough job, and the Internet is a wonderful way to connect with other parents to commiserate, laugh, or simply feel less alone.
I share things to make your life easier. In My Love List series, I share everyday products and finds that I think are awesome. I write about places we’ve been, and how you can plan your own vacations without losing your mind. I occasionally attempt DIY projects, although they are just as likely to be failures as they are to be successes.
I love reading even more than I love m&ms. I publish book reviews every other month or so, and I only share books that I would recommend. Check out my List of Good Books to Read for an index of every book I’ve reviewed.
