I am a Wife/Mama/Photographer/Musician/Sci-Fi Geek/Crazy Animal Lady/Travel Enthusiast.

I love Harry Potter (movies, books, whatever…), Douglas Adams books, 30′s & 40′s Jazz & Jazz Samba, Sewing and flower arranging.  I love Star Trek, Star Wars & Stargate.  I don’t discriminate with my Sci-Fi.

I collected vintage before the that word became overused by everyone and their dog.  Truly.  I was that dork in the 10th grade wearing full vintage garb complete with white gloves and wondering why people kept asking me if I was in a play or something.  My heart belongs to another era.

My favourite month is October, and yet my favourite holiday is Christmas.  I love the snow.  My ideal holiday is a winter one (see: “Sparkly Mountains and Snow Covered Trees”) and I get whiny in the summer heat (see: “Bits and Pieces, Evening Edition“).

When I’m not being a sleep deprived mama, I work as a photographer with my own business (Courteney Rodda Photography), and perform with my jazz band “Courteney Rodda and the Other Guys”.  But let’s be honest…being a sleep deprived mama is pretty much what my life is all about right now.

I love this blog and have been doing it for a long time.  It’s evolved many times over and will probably change again many times over in the future.  The silly title “The Titled Blog” just goes to show how much this blog has changed over the years.  What started as a mostly private project that I never thought would amount to anything (thus the stupid name) turned into a major part of how I express myself.  I have had the opportunity many times to change the name to something more trendy (something that involves a vague expression about a woodland creature?) but I’ve kept the dorky “Titled Blog”.  It’s who I am.
