lgrier-luiy-banner2Katie, Alex and CharlieI am a mom to two handsome boys, wife to a high school history teacher and full-time worker bee at a greeting card company outside of Boston. I have always liked to write, starting as far back as middle school, where I wrote newsletters with made-up stories starring my friends. I was able to distribute these thanks to our home dot-matrix printer. Boy do I miss tearing off those perforated edges.

With my love of books and writing, it was a given I would become an English major, and I even spent a couple of years working at a real newspaper, but these first-person essays are where I’ve always shined. I’m excited to share some of my day-to-day discoveries and thoughts with you.

When I’m not doing the mom/wife/employee thing, I like to work on photo projects or anything graphic-design related. I am also super into Hostess cupcakes, consignment shops and taking photos on the auto setting. I crochet animal hats – matching ones for the boys obviously – and I spend an obscene amount of time planning activities and meals with the help of Pinterest.
