A little about me?
36 years old, living in Harrison, New York with my 2 children, Charlie(4) and Violet (2), and husband Dave. Not to forget our loyal bulldog named Artie (after Artie Lang my husband is a Howard Stern nut), and little kitty named Lags.
Why Harrison ?
Born and raised a Connecticut girl, but my husband’s roots are in Westchester. So although we love Connecticut, we wanted a little change of scenery and Harrison was always at the forefront of our mind. First and foremost, we were attracted to the quality of the school system for our children and the taxes compared to other Westchester towns weren’t so bad! We also loved the idea of being in a town where we didn’t know anybody … that was refreshing to us. Although my husband does have some extended family here.
One thing people would be surprised to know about me ?
I have a slight obsession with shelves. Mostly bookshelves. But I could stare at design pictures of how people organize their shelves for hours! Also, if you know me well you know I have a deep love for Fleetwood Mac and Stevie Nicks. I’m pretty sure I was meant to be born a couple decades earlier.
Anyone special I’d like to thank ?
My mom would be the obvious answer here, but honestly, my husband is a gem. Best partner and father and just all around great guy that everyone wants to be around. Then my parents, who at the drop of a dime, will help me whenever I need it .. and not because they have to but because they just adore being with their grandbabies.
Favorite thing to do with my kids ?
Dance, sing and play instruments, cook and go to the beach.
Favorite thing to do without my kids ?
Most moms would say catch up with friends but me, I crave some alone time. Whether it’s shopping or getting current with my favorite shows (Real Housewives, Fixer Upper, Curb Your Enthusiasm) … it’s a great way for me to hit the reset button.
