Who am I?
My name is Mary Rebecca, and I live in Wisconsin. I am married to an amazing man who I always like to think of as my Sackett Man. No, he doesn’t have a horse and he doesn’t traverse the country on wild west adventures. He is tall, dark, handsome, strong, dependable, hardworking, God fearing, loyal, principled, and fiercely protective. He has a huge sense of humor (resulting in him being a goofball sometimes) and he is the biggest secret romantic I’ve ever come across.
I have three children. Two boys, Roman and James, joined this year by a bright-eyed baby sister. Roman is a mini stamp of his father, green eyes and work ethic and all, with a dose of cautiousness added in. He has the heart of a superhero. Just tap into his desire to be a hero, and he will move heaven and earth. James looks exactly like me with his big, charming dark eyes… and he is fearless and insanely curious. I don’t mean book-curious, but actively curious. I call him my mini Bear Grylls. And my charmer; when he looks at you sideways and his eyes start twinkling and he give you that slow, sweet grin… yep. My daughter, Rosemary, is blond (like her brothers… odd, since I and my husband are dark brunette) and blue eyed. She’s only a baby but she is already a charmer just like her brother, James, and so calm and even-keeled that she hardly makes a fuss. She’s beautiful!
Now about me: I went to college for a BFA in Illustration (my favorite mediums being pen & ink, graphite, charcoal, and watercolor) and someday, when the children are not so little, I will go back and finish. I also write. I write ALL THE TIME. I am working on several novels (I finished one and it’s in the proofreading/polishing stage… hooray!) and some children stories. I also write fanfiction. Not sure what that is? Well… have you ever read a book, comic, or watched a movie or tv show and then indulged in some fantasizing? “What if this person had this happen to them?” “What if the group went on this adventure?” That’s fanfiction. It’s people who take those imaginings and write them down and then post them on free fanfiction sites.
I believe in and follow God. I absolutely believe in the Trinity (Father, Son, Holy Spirit) and that Jesus died and rose again, and that God’s way is the best way. A lot of people talk to themselves throughout the day… I find I talk to God, instead. Same strange conversations as one might have with themself, but with a much more patient and wiser listener.
I am an avid Tolkien fan, I LOVE the Piano Guys, and I also love Jane Austen, C. S. Lewis, Louis L’Amour, the Thor/Avengers movies, Hawaii Five-0, NCIS, Hercule Poirot, Miss Marple, Sherlock Holmes, Josh Groban, To Say Nothing of the Dog… I could go on but that would take too long. Many things inspire me and fill me; I’ll have to share them as I think of them, in sporadic bits!
So that is me, in a nutshell. I hope that was interesting to read; if not, I apologize, and hope to entertain a little more in my posts.
