It's North Carolina Beer Month. Let's Talk Beer.
Over the last month or so my husband has jumped full steam ahead into a new hobby. Home-brewing. Is that one word, or two? Home brewing. Brewing beer at home. Making his own beer. Did you know that April is North Carolina Beer Month? Yeah, I didn't either. ...

I Know What You'll Be Reading This Summer.
You know that I'm addicted to books. And you know I can't help buying them and saving them, whether it's a hard copy or downloaded to my Kindle. So I've pulled together a bunch of summer releases that I'm anxiously waiting for and sharing them with you so y...

Letting Go: My Kid Plays Down The Street
We live in a family-friendly neighborhood. There are loads of cul-de-sacs and kids roaming freely. Maybe way too freely, but we've decided that it's time to let our daughter roam a bit. She's eight. Her birthday was in February, so she's not a "new" eight. ...

Story
Tagline
I am who I am and I like who that is.
Introduction
My husband and I relocated to NC from NYC in May of 2006 and I am still a non-driving, pizza-and-bagel missing, native Brooklyn-born New Yorker at heart. Our daughter was born in 2007 but thinks she's a teenager most of the time. And honestly we wouldn't have it any other way. Except maybe at bedtime. And when she totally thinks she knows everything. And everything else. You know how it is, right?
