I'm the mama of a toddler girl and a baby boy; a neat freak; and a serious fan of summertime. My work has appeared on dozens of websites, including The Huffington Post, What to Expect, Bustle, Parenting, The Fashion Spot, and McSweeney's. In another life, I lived in Los Angeles and worked on sitcoms. I'm constantly rearranging furniture; prefer my laundry to dry on a clothesline; and will always hold onto the dream that one day my husband and I will own a quaint hotel somewhere on the coast of Italy. Kids stay free. Breakfast buffet included.
