I’m Anka. Average wife, mother, and cook who wears a cape beneath my clothes. I was elevated to superhero status when I forfeited using my journalism degree to raise kids.

This wasn’t the first time my big girl dreams were interrupted. When I was 19, I married the boy next door and spent my twenties putting him through law school.

Now I spend my days changing diapers and eating bon bons.

Only after embracing the chaos was I able to come to terms with two things: 1) being a mom is one of the highest positions a woman can have and 2) a woman doesn’t have to be defined as just a mom.

This blog is for: REAL people. REAL stories. REAL heart.

  7. Hey Anka

    Reading your introduction we seem to have the crucial characteristic of bonbon loving in common. It’s as good a place to start as any!

    Don’t know how I ended up here but glad I did

    • Hi Steven, glad to hear you have a love of bonbons as well. Anything covered in chocolate has got to be good, right? Nice to ‘meet’ you. Thanks for stopping by!
