Arianne Segerman

Arianne writes words on the screen at night after the homeschooling is done and her three boys and baby girl are lost to dreamland. She shares stories on her blog To Think Is To Create about life as a mom to autism, walking through grief after losing her daughter in 2010, and the beauty and soul balm in all of it. In her spare time (hee!) she can either be found window shopping on Etsy, watching reruns of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, or sewing something random just because.

Hey Sweetie - You're One!

Dear Baby,

The only girl among many brothers, you have them all wrapped around your (now one year old) finger, and you can still do no wrong in their eyes. Let’s see how long that lasts, shall we?
