About ME!

I am a thirty-five year old mother, wife, sister, teacher, daughter, and friend. I grew up in the Midwest and have chosen to live my adult life in sunny San Diego.

I started this blog three months into my pregnancy with my daughter Leila, as a way to update my far-away family and friends. I didn't realize how much I enjoyed writing (and over-sharing on the internet) until I began. Now I use this blog as a way to remember our life as a new family and to share what I'm learning about motherhood.


Last June I was laid off from my teaching job after eleven years. I never planned to be a stay-at-home mom and am slowly finding peace within my new role. Lazy mornings, toddler play-dates, picnics at the park, making new friends, stopping to smell the flowers, and wearing yoga pants never felt so good!

Five things I'm not too embarrassed to tell you:
  1. I think it's okay to wear sunglasses everyday, no matter what the weather is.
  2. I am a super Type-A personality. What else is there...Type B? (Really though, is it called Type-B?)
  3. While pregnant, my sister made me laugh so hard that I peed my pants.
  4. I wish I was better at photographing my daughter.
  5. Sometimes I bust out a dance move for no reason at all.

Thanks for stopping by!
