Stella’s baby book is empty but she already has an Instagram account. I have always had an inappropriate sense of humor so it’s easier for me to talk to Future Stella and not Current Stella, who is only 4. Not to say I don’t talk to Current Stella, that would be strange if I just completely ignored her, I just don’t really talk to her the way my brain prefers things to come out of my mouth. In the process of doing this, I realized I have so much to say to the person I’m raising her to be.
*If you read something I wrote and are totally horrified that I would say that to a 4 year old- calm down, I most likely didn’t. Despite how I portray myself in this blog, I’m actually really loving and sweet to my child. All the inappropriate stuff mostly happens in my head, thus inspiring this blog so it can find a way out somehow.
We live in San Francisco, California. This place is one of the most expensive places to live in the United States. We are surviving because of rent control and a fierce determination to raise our daughter in the most beautiful, diverse, opportunistic place on earth. My husband and I are from the same small town and moved here together in 2003 to start a new life and it has been an amazing journey.
I am a hair colorist at a fancy salon and I have a love affair with my job. Its amazing and totally fulfilling. Writing is another one of my creative outlets so who knows where this little venture will bring me.
Thank you so much for checking out my blog. I love when readers leave me comments and I always write back.
