About my kids: 
I have one daughter. Her name is Willow and she’s a very active toddler. She has way more energy than I do! She has blond frizzy, curly hair, which I’ll have to teach her to straighten someday. She’s super bubbly and outgoing, talks non-stop and is guaranteed to give me a run for my money when she’s a tween. She also gives the world's best hugs!
Parenting is...: 
By far my greatest challenge to date. Totally exhausting, extremely emotional, but so incredible when you get it right.
We know you don't have a lot, but when you do, what do you like to do in your spare time?: 
I watch movies (preferably in the theatre), read fiction (preferably in the bathtub), get together with my girlfriends (preferably at a yummy restaurant), and spend time with my husband (preferably on some adventure I’ve dreamed up).
When are you at your yummiest?: 
On vacation! Traveling is my passion–still trying to figure out how to make it happen with baby in tow.
If someone wrote a biography about you, what would be the title?: 
I’m a writer. I’m hoping I’ll write other people’s biographies rather than be the subject of one.
What's currently in your purse?: 
The pretty Coach wallet I splurged on while in Las Vegas for my 30th birthday, car keys, lip-gloss, sunglasses, regular glasses, iPhone, some mail I forgot to put away, a few lists written on scraps of paper, pens, coverup, tampons, and, when I'm prepared, a pacifier for my daughter.
What superhero power would you like to have?: 
Time travel
If we gave you an elephant, where would you hide it?: 
Why would I hide it? I’d keep it outside my house and offer free rides to all the kids in the neighbourhood.
