Job Update: INTERNSHIP!

Huge news: I got my first internship yesterday! I'll be working for Rebecca Martin from New York Family magazine as she heads up the New Parents Expo. It's an unpaid internship, but I'm considering it a free education. Beats adding more student loans to the pile. I can't wait to get started! Rebecca and I met yesterday and I love her ideas for the Expo: Stroller Test Drive Track, Fashion Runway, and a Speaker Series filled with people that got me through the first three years of parenthood. So excited. FYI: You know how Rebecca found me? My blog. Best thing I ever did was start NYC Taught Me.

The red sweater! Again! Again! 

Here's a picture of me in Paris around six months ago. It was that week that Jordan encouraged me to start a blog of my own. I'm so glad we had that conversation! Since then, blogging has opened up so many opportunities and friendships for me. Three cheers for whoever invented blogging.  And four cheers for my internship at a publishing company!

  11. good luck with everything, it sounds like an exciting adventure! i just started reading your blog and it has given me so much hope. i love that you decided to raise your kids and are now searching for your career. i have a 1 year old little girl and am working in a dead end job at the moment because it pays me well and allows me to be home with her a lot. i would love to do something more creative and inspiring but i dont want to miss all the little moments with my daughter right now. sometimes i feel like its too late to start up another career path. but you have given me hope, thanks so much!

  23. I'm so happy to hear that things are working out for you! And, yes, you are really good at baby-making. If those bums knew how good, they'd all be knocking on your door. It's just hard to get reliable references for that one.

  27. Two towers increase from a length and a full moon hangs in the sky more than a surreal dream like landscape.
    Performing anything these days is smarter than holding on to the status quo.
