This blog started out as an idea as I was one of the first of my very close-knit, very small group of friends to dive into the world of motherhood. A voracious reader, researcher, and perfectionist extraordinaire – I like sharing my lessons-learned with the ones I love the most. Hopefully I can turn my passion for long and dramatic emails into something MORE!
A recent transplant to New Jersey, I’m usually walking a tightrope between career woman and devoted mother while hanging on for dear life with my dish-pan hands. I’m a mom to two of the most amazing little girls in the world: a darling and spunky 2-year-old and a feisty and squeezable 6-month-old and a wife to a hard-working and supportive husband.
Lately, I’ve been trying to maintain some appearance of a work-life balance, and finding that the scales are usually tipped in one direction or the other – but still trying! When the dishes are done, the laundry is folded, and the house is nice and tidy – oh, wait, this isn’t a fictional piece! – well, anyway, in my spare time, if I ever get any, I’d like to read books, travel with my husband, drink margaritas on the deck, and one day, if I’m really lucky, enjoy a phone conversation without a million interruptions. For now, I’ll settle for 20 minutes of an Audrey Hepburn movie and a diet coke. Won’t you join me?
