Living Outside the Box

June 10, 2013

My husband was a student when I met him seven years ago. He was beginning his science courses at a junior college after completing an undergraduate degree in business at the University of Hawaii. I was living a somewhat aimless existence in San Francisco, floundering around my mid-twenties trying to figure out what I wanted […]

March 22, 2012

I can hardly believe that March is almost over. The cold winds and frost bitten mornings have subsided and the streets are now sprinkled with smatterings of white and purple petals. I’m just catching my breath after what has felt like a freight train picked us all up by our ears-lifted us right out of […]

On the Horizon

February 21, 2012

Our home has been filled with more love and chaos than ever before, but we’re doing well. All five of us are doing really, really well. It feels so good to say that after there was so much uncertainty brewing just before Beau was born. During our fifth year of marriage, our family expanded to […]

Hurricane Irene: Blessings in Disguise

September 1, 2011

Last Thursday was one of the craziest days I have had in a very, very long time. I was up at 5AM packing lunches, writing notes for the babysitter, finding a broadcast worthy blouse, and loading up my suitcase for a weekend trip to Los Angeles. Justin left at 7:30AM to take one of the […]

The past three consecutive Saturdays in August, Park Avenue has been closed to vehicles and opened to bikers, pedestrians and everyone in-between for what they call Summer Streets.

A Labor of Love

August 14, 2011

This week has been a roller coaster of emotions. Zoe has finally begun use the potty and is nearly completely out of diapers. It’s been a long, messy and frustrating time coming, but I’m so excited to bust out the adorable Hello Kitty panties I bought for her six months ago. We learned that after […]

‘Tis the Season for Love

May 31, 2011

I’ve fallen again for this city. Spring has officially made it’s awesome appearance, and just like *that*, I’ve forgiven and forgotten the long, brutal winter that I thought would never leave. I began to seriously doubt my capability for living in New York City through the next two years before Justin graduates Dental School. By […]

Road Full of Promise: Two Years

May 14, 2011

Today marks the second birthday of one of the coolest, most poignant projects of my life. I’ve been blogging now for two years exactly, and while it feels about right, I’m still in awe at the freedom and joy that documenting our journey to New York City from California has brought me.

Just Wednesday

April 7, 2011

Three days a week, I get Zoe all to myself. When we aren’t at home playing “babies”, we shop, get “coffee”, and cruise around the neighborhood when weather allows. This is the first time we’ve been able to spend time together, being the second child to a brother who is only 19 months her senior. […]
