About Me

Hi there, I'm Holly May.

I'm married, I just turned 31, a mum to two, a sister to two, a friend to many.  I crochet, sew, paint and craft - when I'm not I running around after my kiddos, doing dishes (worst job ever), washing and all the rest of it...


From January 2014 to October 2014, my family had been in the 'process' of immigrating to the US.  Basically waiting for the immigration visas to come through.

My husband was in the US from March, 2014, and our oldest son and I had been waiting in New Zealand until we were allowed to go.  The waiting and not-knowing-when time apart was simply an awful 8 months, and I shared some of my ups and downs here.

We were finally allowed to go, visas in our passports and we were literally counting down the days until we were reunited on the 22nd of November.

We arrived in the States on the 26th of November and drove to Arizona on Thanksgiving, arriving just in time to have dinner at my husbands' Aunt and Uncles house.

Now we are officially living in AZ, USA.  I'm so excited about our US adventures ahead.


I was married in 2009, my son was born in 2011 via emergency cesarean section after a pretty normal and quite easy pregnancy.  Here's the closest thing to a 'birth story' that I think I'll ever do.  It came as a total surprise and shook my spirit a lot.

I was almost pregnant when Canterbury experienced their big 7.1M earthquake in 2010.  I was about 4 or 5 months pregnant when we experienced the 'big one' on February 22nd, 2011.  I haven't written much about it yet... it's a bit too much to think about even years later.

I began blogging when I was pregnant.  I was looking for others' stories in the blogging world who were in the same pregnant 'state' as me.  Inspiration hit and here I am.

Here's a bit of a Q&A I did for the NZ Bloggers Connecting shenanigan.

And last, but by far not least, I am a believer in Jesus Christ.  He is my Lord and Saviour.

I hope you enjoy your stay.  :)
