Ola! Welcome to Petite Raisin. This is the world that surrounds me, and I wouldn’t trade any of it…so, I thought I’d share it here with you. This is me in a tiny nutshell: I’m a wellness craving, s’mores eating, instruction defying, Americano Misto drinking, laughing till my stomach hurts, mama, wife, and friend. It’s awesome to meet you! So, let’s tip back an Americano Misto (or two), and get to know each other day to day on my blog!
The brains behind the blog name “Petite Raisin” is a combo from myself, and my funny, clever, project seeking, determined, blondie hubby, Chris! He came up with “Petite”, and I came up with “Raisin”.
Raisin is one of the MANY nicknames we call our little guy. It originated when making up rhymes while singing to an infamous Raffi song: “Down by the Bay”…have you ever seen Mason eating a raisin? Down by they bay…and so on. For any parent reading, I’m sure you’re familiar with the tune. The other half of the raisin nickname came from his week long, food jagging obsession with raisins. He couldn’t get enough of those dried up chewy nuggets. So, that’s pretty much how the nickname “Mason the Raisin” came about, it’s stuck around, and we totally LOVE it.
So, who is my world?
What’s to expect when visiting my world here? Well, a mash up of everything! I love my family, all fashion, bright colours, appreciate great design (print and interior), being active, creating masterpieces of all sorts in the kitchen (and let’s be honest some failures), making our little raisin laugh till it hurts, and day to day FUN!
So, you’ll see a little bit of each of those things here. Thanks for stopping by, and please – won’t you enjoy an Americano Misto while you stick around?
