My name is Ilze. I like blogging: sharing my recipes, thoughts, photos of Latvian birds and nature. I’ve been blogging since 2006. My first english blog was (and still is?) ilznelle.com. The reason why I started that blog was to overcome my phobia of not knowing english. Now I understand it doesn’t matter that much. I’m amateur.

Being newbie mom means being an amateur of everything! The only thing I’m not amateur is Computer Science. I have 2nd level professional degree of Programmer, Bachelor degree of Computer Science and Master degree of Management of Computer Science… But who cares about education if you have to change diapers, be ready day and night!

Yes, I worked before I become a mom. I have been Test engineer, Scrum master, Internal Auditor, Lead and Head of a Test team. But now I’m not working… I’m a housewife… As you know they don’t work. Just simply doing nothing all day long.

At the beginning of my newbie mom journey I heard that a lot… from
ilzeothers. It seams that they know your baby better then you, they have the one and only right solution, they know how to raise your child and already know that your child is spoiled… And defiantly have time for everything important like dishes, laundry, dinner, house cleaning, window polishing and perfect look… in social media. But how about real life!?

I really do love spending time walking outside or weed out my super small garden (in summer). Be crafty, watching birds and taking pictures. Cook and eat! And playing together with my kids!!!!

I hope this blog inspires other moms! And it will grow (old) with me!
