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!

Two years ago you arrived, and everything changed forever. 
You have given us two years of love and anxiety and happiness and amazement and joy. You are quite honestly the most delicious little boy I have ever seen in my life and every day I can’t believe you are mine.

Whenever we talk about who we are going to see and what we are going to say to them, you always tell me you are going to say “Hi! I love you!” Because you are the friendliest little guy ever, except if you are a pediatrician or a hairdresser :) In your second year of life you learned to walk and then run. You learned to jump and walk up and down steps and do a somersault. You learned to talk and then you never stopped. You learned to dance and sing and nothing is cuter than your sweet little voice in the back of the car. You went to Hawaii and Arizona and Galveston and Dallas and New York twice. You fell in love with  Elmo and Abby and Cookie Monster and the Count and all their pals. You have the world’s best dimples and we all get to see them all the time because you are always smiling and having a grand old time. 
You have opinions. You want pasta at every meal. You want to hold the remote and push the buttons. You want to help load the laundry and push the buttons. You want to sneak over to daddy’s TV and push the buttons. You want two loveys, not one. You want to watch Baby Shark and Baby Monkey, not Baby Shark and Baby T-Rex. You tell me, “I WALK! I JUMP!” You tell me “Morgie funny” and you laugh at your own silly jokes. You listen to every single thing everyone says and then you repeat it all immediately. 
Whenever I put you in your crib, I tell you I love you and when you wake up, we will go on another adventure. And life with you is the very best adventure in the world. 
Happy 2nd birthday Morgan Reese. I love you so much. I am so proud of you. 💕

  • The five stages of grief are
denial
anger
bargaining
depression
acceptance

And Avery experienced all of them when Morgan didn’t share his chicken nuggets 🤪
