So who am I: I am 33 (holy cow!), a lawyer, an LA native, a wife and a mommy to an incredible 20 month old. I love to read, knit, travel, debate politics (although I am told I get too heated in such debates), take walks, ride my bike, listen to good music, and eat good food. Most of all, I love love love being a mom. I love going to the park, watching my son run and marvel at just about anything and everything, teaching him words, putting puzzles together, knocking down blocks, having tickle-fests, wrestling, and on and on. I feel like I'm reliving my childhood through him, and it is simply amazing (for lack of better words). My next sentence is such a cliche, but here goes: Having a baby changed my life in ways I couldn't ever imagine. Yes, there is the obvious lack of sleep, the weekend nights that I am more than happy to spend at home doing nothing, the lack of sleep, and - oh, yeah - the lack of sleep (I'm really tired today). But, in addition to all that, I have become a pesticide-phobe, a plastic/bpa/phthalate/pvc-phobe, a toys-made-in-china-phobe, a paraben/sulfate/1,4 dioxane/oxybenzone-phobe, a processed-food-phobe, and a toxic-cleaner-phobe. In other words, I try as hard as I possibly can to lead a natural and organic life (good thing my husband is on board because I often annoy myself with this new take on life). As a result, it now takes me hours to shop for food, cleansers, soaps, and facial products because if there are ingredients on the label, I read them. I thoroughly research everything I buy. And all that takes a long, long time.
So that's me in a nutshell, and below is a picture of my sweet little man.
