I am a wife and mother of two- ages 10 and 13. Trained Bio-Chemist turned sports mom who resides in the suburbs of Philadelphia but still loves the sites and sounds of the city. I can be found scouring- DC, Maryland, New York, Philly and bringing lots of people along for the ride.
When I’m not behind the computer I can be found reading, swimming, bike riding, shopping, breaking bread or toasting with friends, coaching lacrosse, volunteering with Jack and Jill of America, Girl Scouts of America, or supporting fellow breast cancer survivors.
Where’s My Mommy’s Neighborhood…
I created My Mommy’s Neighborhood (MMN) as a network to connect moms who felt the need for the unwritten manual because I knew I needed it. In the midst of delivery, I realize that I was going to be a mom. Don’t misunderstand me, I knew there was a life growing inside of me and I did all the traditional things to celebrate but I never really thought about it. I went along with the laid out plan but never thought what this would mean for my life, marriage, dreams etc. The midst of delivery was clearly not the best place to try to figure it out. Life began to evolve and it was time for a change.
Heels, Head and Standards High…
I have always been a shoe lover. From the time I was able to walk, I would find any excuse to prance around in high heels. They seemed to make me fearless and confident. Summers were spent with my fashion diva aunts who would encourage mini fashion shows and I can recall crying when it as time to go home and begging to keep a pair of fancy pumps. As the years went by, shoes just became a means to keep my feet covered. It was not until May 2013 when I heard those three words, “You Have Cancer” did I realize that I needed to arm myself with the things that made me feel strong. I quickly became known as the shoe lady in the chemotherapy unit and they looked forward to seeing just which pumps I would be wearing.
Life in Pumps…
Deciding to change your “name” is not an easy task. I had to find something that reflects my lifestyle. The common denominator when I asked people was shoes, all types but mainly high heels, stilettos or pumps. Life in Pumps will share relatable post about family, fashion, wellness and travel. I invite you to join me on this journey of transforming from drab to fab, living fearless and fabulous!
