Introduction Just so you know...this is not a blog about baseball. Although in my life, there is an outfield, a dugout, and a concession stand (stocked with frozen Ballpark brownies.) My last name is Ball, and my life often feels like a game, so I write about the wins and losses, strikes and pop flies that occur in my ballpark. I scribble about grown-up babies, seasoned parents, chasing wellness, chasing God, and dropping the meatloaf in the dish water. And I wrote an ebook about a crazy fun, family Christmas project we do every year. (Check it out on my "The 12 Days of Christmas Adventure" tab.) For samples of my writing, click "The Warm Up" tab. Welcome to my ballpark!
Interests Writing, couponing, baking, hanging clothes on the line, eating chocolate/raspberry creme eggs, and squeezing my children.
