About me

lydia 27 ans
Welcome! I'm French-American, I'm a broadcaster, wife to Andrew and Maman to our sweet Adelina. This is the part of life where I'm learning about myself quite a bit -- as a mom, as a professional, as a person, as a wife. Ours is a bilingual home, and it's a place we're still learning and improving. Lots of growing happening here, but our goal is to build a legacy. Thanks for reading, and it's nice to have you along for the ride :)
What's this blog about?
It's about the stuff (our) life is made of. I like to share things I learn, everyday life, motherhood & marriage, whatever inspires me, victories and funny moments. Ultimately, I want this to be a place that shares the ups and downs of life but also empowers others to reach their potential: professional goals, personal successes, family strength, organization, mental & physical health, or a beautiful, happy home.
Please, make yourself comfortable, comment, participate, but stay respectful. I will moderate comments for language, personal attacks and discriminatory remarks.
A little more about me:
I was born in Nice, France, lived in Virginia for a few years, then my family went back to Bordeaux, France where we moved about five times. My father is French and sings opera, my mom's an American and a gifted learning teacher, so in the midst of all that there was a lot of music, a lot of learning and a lot of reaching for the stars, no matter what our situation at the time.
At 18 years old, I packed three suitcases with everything my post-high-school-self owned and moved to beautiful Provo, Utah to study at BYU. The broadcast journalism program there stretched me way past my comfort zone, and I'm so glad for it! I won a couple of awards, and worked on deepening my voice and writing a solid story.
I also met my handsome husband on the BYU Ballroom Dance Company in 2008, and it didn't hurt that he was fresh off spending two years in Switzerland and France! We still enjoy tearing up the dance floor together, and Andrew still teaches dance and violin off and on. (did I mention he's musically talented too?)
We are now settling down in Wyoming, and I'm loving getting to know my community and actually becoming a part of it. It's nice to put some roots down, and we are especially thrilled about the latest addition to our family in 2014 -- our beautiful daughter Adelina. Read her birth story here.
I anchor the early evening news for our local TV station, and I love my job despite the crazy hours and high stress levels. And just to be crystal clear: **this blog is a personal project, the statements and views expressed on this blog are my own and do not reflect those of KCWY or Gray Television.** 
I'm also a contributor for the Mormon Women Project, which is an incredibly rewarding experience that has allowed me to meet some wonderful people. I guess even in my spare time I like interviewing people! The cooperative ministry that has grown from the project is important to me, and I'm always looking for ways to tell women's stories.
