(I don’t usually write in third person, but when I do, I write a comprehensive bio.)

And now for the serious stuff…

  • I run a lot, and very slowly. Okay… I speed walk a lot.

  • I can’t stand losing at Pictionary. Can’t. Stand. It.

  • I could survive off sushi, mint chocolate chip ice cream and avocados. And yeah, sure, give it to me all at once.

  • I went to an event (inside!) the White House hosted by Michelle Obama to promote her Let’s Move! campaign, and I will never stop bragging about it.

  • I take pictures of my baby sleeping. And I will never stop referring to him as my baby.

  • When New World Library confirmed my book deal I got so excited I peed a little. I had a vaginal birth…

    1. Many thanks for you kind words 🙂 Yes, Ojai is East of Ventura- and the hiking is life changing (and the poison oak awful!) I look forward to reading your pregnancy piece- thanks for sending it over!

  1. Hey Bailey, I tried to thank you with the amazon link but no luck, so here I am! Thank you for the gift of Feng Shui mommy. I look forward to reading it. If the style (and you) are like your bio I am going to love it, and you!
    Warm Regards,
