I am mother to the cutest 2-year-old in the world. (No really, she is cuter than your kid. Eight scientific studies have proven it.) I am a totally average middle-class white girl. I am a beer snob. I am a reformed cat lover. I am in love with food. I am rethinking all my best laid plans. I am working my way out of a rut. I am trying my damndest to be happy.


I'm feeling some pressure to be witty and irreverent here, but I'm not going to do it. My interests are: cooking, knitting, camping and hiking, sailing, travel, reading novels and drinking cocktails.
