Welcome to Dutch Blitz…where every day is pretty crazy. My name is Angella and I. Am. Canadian.

I am married to an amazing man named Matthew. He is the one with the Dutch heritage…and the Dutch last name that I took on as my own. Matthew and I have three children together – Graham is 10, Nathan is 8 and Emily is 6. Three kids in under four years and a Dutch last name led me to name my site Dutch Blitz when I went self-hosted four years ago.
