YUMMY is my attempt to give voice and creation to my “other” selves (as all moms have and must possess) – the mother, daughter, sister, aunt, friend, financial analyst, homemaker, adjunct professor, non-profit professional, runner, volunteer, counselor…the list could go on. I am one who has way too many interests, yet only one body and life to complete it all in. I love writing, but I don’t have the discipline to make a career of it. I love fashion, but I just don’t have the patience and “pop” to throw an outfit together seamlessly. I love traveling, but I work full-time and can only excursion locally. I love being a mom, but it’s hard as hell and I’m far from an expert on parenting. It’s on these pages, that I let you into my life; but, I have to warn you: It ain’t always pretty, nor perfect.
