welcome, baby, to the new america

President Obama was sworn in yesterday and I am so glad you were around (kind of) to be a part of history. I am very excited to bring you into the world at such a time of great hope and optimism for the future of the country and the planet. Just think, things that we find so amazing now, such as a black president, your generation will find commonplace. But, you'll be learning about this day and this President in your history books. And you get to say you were part of history in the making!

baby love

We are expecting our first baby, due in July!! Right now I'm focused on the very important issues, such as fantasizing about a decorating a nursery...(still not sure what the sex of the baby is, but a boy can like pink, right?)

laid off

Ugh. The recession has hit home. In November, I was laid off from my job of six years and am now trying to pick up the pieces and move on. Which, so far, has included daily trips to the gym and discovering the hidden gems of daytime television.
