WHO IS THEdramafreemama?

My name is Deborah. I am a former teacher, turned education consultant for a technology company; I am a writer; I am a wife to a blue-eyed beard; I am an animal lover and rescuer–(we currently have 3 dogs, 2 cats, & 2 reptiles). I make friends easily and have many. But the most humbling and moving role in my life to date is that of a mama. My sons, Zac and Jett are 4 and 7, so every day is an adventure and a lesson in survival! This blog is about the daily juggle (and struggle) of the working mom…

We live in a rural area of Virginia in a log cabin in the woods (yes, seriously) and we keep it simple… which, by the way, does not mean we are stupid. It means you can keep your drama, and your traffic, and your $6 latte, and leave me my family.

Some of my favorite things are black coffee, snowy days, thrift stores, breakfast food for dinner, leggings as pants, and fresh notebooks. I will literally smell a new notebook and breathe it in like it’s giving me life. I’m a baseball mom, and this gives me more joy than I ever expected. I wear earrings every single day. I place a lot of value on good manners and good apologies. I believe that taking care of the environment is important. I try to set a good example for my kids, and sometime I fail at it. I’m glad you’re here.


We spend a lot of time in our back yard. I consider it the best part of our home.

I take the back roads whenever possible.



These are my people. We like to do fun stuff together.



I’m glad you stopped by!

    Hi! I apologize in advance if I sound crazy lol. So I found your blog through your comment you left on a blog post, on the baby center website. It was the one about the American girl doll at the library. Anyway I saw your comment about having a Samantha doll. I never was fortunate enough to have one but I always wanted Samantha. I have a son and we’re expecting a girl in march. I want to get her a samantha doll so bad! ( I know she won’t be able to play with it for a few years though) But American girl discontinued Samantha 😦 I’ve seen her on eBay and amazon for outrageous prices, which my husband would have a heart attack if I spent that much money on a doll lol. So I was wondering if you would be interested in selling your doll to me? If not I totally understand. And Im sorry for this long ramble comment, I just had to ask. Thanks. If you do want to sell it here’s my email aimt88@gmail.com. And I like your blog:) congrats on boy #2!!
