About Me


welcome to bookandbliss_happy in Sydney Harbour Hello friends, I’m Carmen Seegmiller. So glad you dropped in!

This is a place for teachers, parents, & life-long learners.

This is for Those-In-The-Thick-Of-It.

We are in the middle of busy jobs and demands, keeping our difficult balance. This is a go-to place for the stories that help us navigate—and give us a stopping place to do some thinking.

Stay awhile. Read a little {perhaps this}, think a little {here}, share a little.

A Little About Me:

I was almost an English major.

In the middle of a Contemporary Literature course, reading lovely things, awful things, and taking a good look around, I realized that the class I REALLY wanted to be taking was Children’s Literature. And that was for Elementary Education majors only. So that was that.

It was a good decision because now I get a packet of these every year:

Yep. Third Grade rocks.

You should also know:

  • I love Downton Abbey
  • I love yoga & I eat chocolate on the way to the gym
  • I love Jesus, my Creator who makes beautiful things
  • I love wearing moccasins instead of real shoes
  • I love teaching 3rd grade
  • I love Snow Patrol
  • I love antique doorknobslearn about bookandbliss
  • I love traveling with my husband Alex {this guy}  ——->

All credit for my love of learning goes to my parents, who spent their hours talking to me before I could speak, who sat down to read with me before I could walk, and surrounded me with books.
