Hi! I’m Annie, a first time mom living and working in the Boston area. I grew up on the North Shore of Massachusetts in a small coastal town and live for warm summer days and endless lobster rolls.
My husband and I were married in September of 2013 and since have had our first little boy, L, who was born in November 2015. L has forever changed our lives, making each and every day brighter, fuller, happier, and at times more challenging. He is every bit your traditional toddler boy. He never stops moving, is always trying to get outside, and constantly keeping us on our toes! I work part-time as a Registered Dental Hygienist. I love my job for the relationships I build with my patients but also the flexibility it gives me to be home with my son. I’m able to watch him learn, explore, and grow each and every week.
I strive to live a healthy lifestyle and set a good example for my son by cooking good meals, squeezing in workouts when I can, getting outside every single day, and indulging in dessert whenever we can! I never knew just how hard it was to feed kids healthy meals until L was born and it sure is a struggle!
Follow along as I share my tips for balancing life as a working mom, the joys and struggles of raising a wild toddler, and healthy meals and recipes we enjoy!
Thanks for visiting!
