About Me

It’s hard to believe, but I started this blog almost 10 years ago! I remember being really uninspired at work and wanting/needing to do something creative. I’ve been writing since I was a little girl, and nothing in the world makes me happier than creating and telling stories. So I created this blog!

Over the years, I’ve picked it up and put it down, forgotten about it, come back to it, abandoned it again… you get the idea. But recently my life has changed in a pretty big way, and I’ve decided to give the ole blog another shot…

Because a few months ago I became a MOM! There is a little boy in this world who belongs to me, which is the most insane thing that has ever happened to me in my entire life. I now spend most of my days trying to figure out how to keep both of us alive, healthy, and sane – which is way easier said than done.

A long time ago, I wrote that “Queen of LA consists of daily posts about glitter and sparkles and what I ate that day and my misguided belief that I am, in fact, the queen of this large metropolitan city.” And not much has changed. I still like writing about the fun activities I do, the delicious food I eat, the gorgeous things I buy, the fabulous trips I take, and the amazing people I love.

So if that sounds good to you, stick around and we will get along just fine!

  • A little late but worth the wait... Morgan is A ONE YEAR OLD MAN! He loves pressing buttons, eating hamburgers, and climbing the stairs (lord help me), and hates drinking bottles. He has 7 teeth and a full head of blonde hair. Everywhere we go people say “There’s the happy baby!” He has brought us so much joy this past year - I can’t believe our potato is ONE!
