I started this blog in May of 2009 as a way to keep in touch with family when we moved from the Bay Area of California to Manhattan. For four years, I wrote about our experiences in the big city while my husband attended dental school at NYU. We moved to Santa Cruz, California the summer after Justin graduated, and have been living here with our son Jack, our daughter Zoe, and our youngest Beau along with a feline named Charlie and a puppy we call Theo.
I’ve been able to run this blog as a business the last couple of years by publishing features and sponsored posts, though regardless of paid content, you can be absolutely sure that the opinions and ideas expressed herein are absolutely authentic. The beauty of this community is the opportunity to share my experiences and connect with all different types of people, and I feel so fortunate to be able to do that.
Please feel free to reach out to me, and know that if I don’t get back to you right away I will most certainly make the effort.
