I left my job as an Executive Producer at Fox News in Salt Lake City to be a full-time freelance writer. I couldn’t bear the thought of going back to work after giving birth to my son Henry. So we worked hard, saved our money, paid off our credit cards and decided to move smack dab in the middle of Amish country in Pennsylvania so we could be near my husband’s family.
It is beautiful. Last night as we sat on the porch an Amish horse and buggy rolled by, fireflies danced on the lawn across the street, the birds chirped. It was… dare I use the term “magical” without sounding like a total doucheburger? Because it was! I’m so lucky to be able to raise my daughter here, in the middle of nature, but so close to New York City – my favorite city in the world.
Anyway, I just wanted to post a couple photos of my girl on the 4th of July. Next time we’ll get into the nitty-gritty of binkies and when to get rid of them. Because I think I have an epic battle brewing.
Hope your holiday was filled with food, friends, fun and, of course, fireworks!
