About Me

Launched in 2010 as a community for parents, this site is growing as fast as your kids are! Grab yourself a cup of coffee [or a margarita, depending on the time of day!] and have a look around!

My name is Emily and 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, long beach days, and adult beverages. And a long winter season of quiet, cold, snowy days where the only non-family member I may see is the postman. IF I venture out to the post office.


My husband, The Texan, and I met in Florida, where I was working for the largest casual dining company in the country. 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. It was a rewarding position and I am forever thankful to have had such a wonderful opportunity.

Our November 2005 wedding at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas was beautiful! Family and friends still talk about how much fun they had celebrating with us. Choosing a destination wedding in Las Vegas was perfect as family and friends came from around the country. After five busy days in Las Vegas, we headed to the Dominican Republic for our honeymoon. Much needed rest and relaxation.

In late 2007, The Texan and I 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 one month later! I struggled to balance motherhood and working part time as Director of Operations for a local business, and in October of 2010 after a surprising, but welcomed layoff, I became a full-time, stay-at-home mom.
