This is my first Blog.  Many have told me they started blogs, then abandom them quickly.  I don't have grandiose plans of blogging every day, but I do like the thought of having this medium to share my thoughts on life.

Here's me in a nutshell:

I'm a working mom of a 16month old son.  I can't believe how quickly the past 16 months have FLOWN by!!  Keeping a balance between work and home is difficult, but I always try to keep in mind that as people get older, most don't look back and say "I wish I would have spent less time with my kids."  Having that in mind reminds me to make my family come first and to savor all of the time I have with them.  I try to be mindful of being in the moment because they do go by too quickly.

I'm a suburbanite.  My husband and I used to live in the city (Boston) and ate at great restaurants and went to wine tastings regularly.  We have traded that in for afternoons at the playground and reading Truck books before bed!!  Its not quite an even trade, but I'm sure the sommeliers don't miss us.

I love to travel, but haven't done so for a while.  We might get to start doing some great trips again once our toddler is a bit older.  Japan, New Zealand and Spain are at the top of the travel "wish list" right now.

I also love photography.  I used to photograph weddings....the happiest day of most people's lives.  It was a lot of fun.  Since it consumes most of your weekend time, I won't be returning to that any time soon.  My little fella is the subject of most of my photography now, and he has been a willing subject so far!

Thanks for reading.
