Hello there! I’m Dawn Perkins.
I’m a pretty simple girl. I love tea and good food and having my family around me. I have an incurable “geeky” side, and love all things techie. I write because I can’t keep my thoughts to myself, but I don’t always know what to write next. Don’t worry, it’ll come to me. Some of it might even make sense to you.
I’m a Jesus girl, a Deadhead (as in the Grateful kind), I write, I play with Photoshop and HTML and URLs. I love taking shots for my Instagram account. I’m an Autism Mom. My chickens are my favorite pets. Our ever-shedding Pomeranians are not. My musical tastes span genres from 80’s hair bands and metal to contemporary Christian and yes, even country.
I love caramel lattes, very dark chocolate, and strawberries. Given the choice, I’ll eat ice cream at the birthday party and skip the cake.I lost 52# in 2014, working my bootie off doing HIIT. Now I work it to keep it off. I like wine, I don’t drink pop, and I love to lift heavy weights. I like to run but I’m battling a pulled calf right now.
I’m a homeschooling Mom of over 18 years, usually happily but sometimes not. I’m currently teaching my two sons, 15 & 13, and enjoying every minute of “the second time around”. I’m also a Gramma, nine (yes, N-I-N-E) times!
My husband and I have been married 21 years and we make our home in Eastern Washington. It is the land of four seasons, two of which I despise. (The hot one and the cold, snowy one.) I’m a coastal girl trapped in the Inland Northwest but I’m making the best of it. When I can’t, we take off for the Oregon coast, or Hawaii. Anywhere with sand and salty waves. We prefer Hawaii. 🙂
This blog is my brain dump, my second time around blog, and the place where I freely write about whatever I can’t stop from pouring out. It could be spirit filled or snarky, and it will definitely have a healthy dose of my opinion. In the blogging world we call it “being real” or “writing transparently”. Whatever. Eventually it will be my only blog, but for the rest of this mothering season I also still write at The Momma Knows.
