The Journey Begins

Thanks for joining me!

Good company in a journey makes the way seem shorter. — Izaak Walton


I am so terribly excited to welcome you to my little blog. It will be a place where we get to chat about what’s on your mind, on my mind, and on the collective parenting hive mind, which is always buzzing.
We will sip tea and come up with grand ideas and dream BIG. You and me, together!
This is my crazy beautiful tribe. My 2-year-old daughter, my 4-year-old son, and my husband Aaron—this summer marked our 6-year anniversary. We live in gorgeous San Diego, down in the South Bay.
We are lucky enough to live in a diverse little melting pot. I grew up here, and my husband grew up in Chicago and Phoenix (go Cubbies!). After getting my Masters in Broadcasting from Syracuse University and working in TV news in Salisbury, Maryland and Phoenix, I switched to radio news and we switched homes once more to Minneapolis, Minnesota.
That’s where my son was born, and that is also where we made the decision to come back home to SD to raise our family. It was never an easy choice, because we left behind good friends in the Midwest, and we adore it there.
Our little girl completed our family in 2016, and here we are today – trying to navigate an increasingly complicated world while raising two smart, hilarious children. No, really – they are incredibly funny! Just watch my InstaStories on any given day, and I’ll prove it to you.
Have I mentioned how excited I am that you are here? We have some growing and learning to do together. This blog will be a safe space, and a fun place to learn about our shenanigans, new recipes, body positivity, and my trials and tribulations as I help to raise two tiny and opinionated humans.
So… here we go! Welcome, and I love you SO big!

I am a wife and mother of a 4-year-old boy and a 2-year-old girl, living in Chula Vista, California! My day job is working from home as a Social Business Manager for IBM. I also maintain my Instagram account, @mommyiloveyousobig. I love weightlifting, yoga, and trying out new recipes. I look forward to traveling the world and experiencing new things with my little family. I spend my free time at the gym, obsessing over Netflix shows, discovering new places and having a beer with the hubby or pals. I love making new mommy friends!
