About Me


Hello! Welcome to Nap Time is My Time. My name is Emily and I am so happy you’re here! Grab yourself a cup of coffee or a margarita and stay a while.

I am an authentic Cape Codder. The beauty of the Nantucket Sound at my front door. The smell of salty air blowing through my home. A busy summer season full of whale watching, play dates, beach days and adult beverages. And a long winter season of quiet, cold, snowy days where the only person I may see is the mail man. IF I venture out to the post office.

My husband, The Texan, and I met in Florida, where I was happily working for the largest casual dining company in the country. Pretty cool, eh? Part of my job responsibilities included writing original content for webpages and guest correspondence, filming videos to teach the appropriate techniques to open a wine bottle, and teaching some of the best restaurant managers in the industry how to more appropriately interact with their guests.

In late 2007, The Texan and I moved relocated to Boston to pursue a career opportunity for him. We found out we were pregnant in the fall of 2008, moved to Cape Cod in June of 2009, welcomed The
Boy in a month later! I struggled to balance motherhood and working part time as Director of Operations for a Small Business, in October of 2010 after a surprising layoff, I became a full-time, stay-at-home mom.
