I am first and foremost a mommy to two great kids with one on the way. Carmen is 10, Gabriel is 7, and Ruby will be here around New Year’s. I have been married for 11 years, and love all animals but have a special affinity for poodles. I love writing, reading, movies, travel, the beach, the mountains, and making my babies smile. My background is in Fashion Journalism, and now my writing is focused on family life and being a mom. It’s a lot of work, a lot of laughter, sometimes tears-but I embrace and cherish every minute of it and am happy to share my experiences with you.
