Welcome to my blog – I’m so happy you’re here! As the tagline reads, this blog is about life, taking it one moment at a time.

I write a lot about parenting, because I have two little kids. (Adeline – three – and Archer – four months.) I also write a lot about, well, writing, because I’m currently working on three different novels, all in various states of disarray. Add to that the posts on feminism, mindfulness and other random crap that’s on my mind, and you’ve got my blog.

I’m a non-practicing lawyer and I’ve been a stay-at-home mom for the last three years. I’ve been focused on working on my novel for the last year, and I’m hoping to query it soon. I also blog for HuffPost occasionally and have been published on several other websites. I’m in the process of trying to figure out what to do with my life.

  1. “attempts to cuddle with her cats”… made me laugh :)

  2. Hope you like your new life. I get to Denver from time to time, Highlands Ranch actually. It seems like a good place to raise a family and be a cloth-diaper mom.

  3. I like your blog (even though I’m not technically a mom–I’m a stepmom, but the children are much older!) :)


  4. I’m glad to find someone making a similar journey as myself – lawyer moms who give up the glory to be at home. It seems like we’re few and far between. I’m looking forward to reading your posts.

  5. This is a very pretty and well organized blog page! I love that you do cloth diapers! Thanks for connecting today!

  6. Love your blog. Please let me know if you find that niche you’re looking for (and whether there is room for another big city corporate lawyer turned ugg wearing SAHM who is neither crunchy nor yuppie but happy with something in the middle)

  7. Wasn’t sure where to leave this comment/message. Recently I went to the dollar store and they had a audiobook titled “To Hell With All That-Loving and Loathing Our Inner Housewife”. Being a new mommy and deciding to go back to work, I decided that it might interest you! I haven’t gotten through all of it yet, but I like what I’ve heard so far! :) Here is a link… http://www.amazon.com/Hell-All-That-Loathing-Housewife/dp/0316066273/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1328483595&sr=1-1

  8. I can relate to a lot of your about me section. I have been struggling to write my own because, I am in between. Used to wear miniskirts 24/7, now yoga pants…I am adjusting. I will be following your blog from now on ! Thank you for sharing ! And good luck for the exam !

  9. Definitely one of the most beautiful babies I’ve ever seen!

  10. A very expressive blog, well done :)

  11. I’m a fellow lawyer/writer/cloth-diapering toddler mama, and I was excited to find your blog just now. I sometimes wish I could stay home with my little bean, but then other times I think I’d go nutty because I love that every day at work is different (which is perhaps not as true of “biglaw”– love that term, btw! — as of crimelaw, which is my ball o’ wax). Anyway, I’m glad to’ve found you: I will follow and keep up with your adventures.

    What’s a yuppie mom? And I have always wanted to ask this and now I’ve pegged you… how do you deal with #2 when it comes to cloth diapers?

Tell me what you think!
