I’ve heard Karey, the writer behind Mackin Ink, speak twice (once at Alt in 2010 and again this year). She is sweet, funny and enchanting. Her blog? The very same. A lovely combination of personal stories and found images, Mackin Ink makes me smile each and every time I read.
If you put the two most important parts of me together – motherhood and writing – and you stir in a little resolution about personal fulfillment and mental stability, you get this blog. Like most mothers out there, I absolutely adore my children and, like most mothers out there, I live dangerously close to that bend in the road, the one you’re not supposed to go around. The writing you find here keeps me away from that bend. It gives me just a bit more road. It slows life down long enough for me to remember the details. It helps me to focus on the good stuff and handle the bad stuff with more grace and humour. And there’s always room in my life for more grace and humour.
