I love life and food. Specifically homemade chocolate chip cookies 10 minutes out of the oven. Those bad boys are my Achilles’ heel.


I am a wife, mom, blogger and graphic designer living in San Diego. A busy mom who loves good food and simplicity, I share my weekly menu planning ideas and other deliciousness on my blog This Week for Dinner. I also write for several other websites and keep myself busy with all kinds of projects in the online space. Above all, I love reading to my kids and eating chocolate chip cookies.

Fun Facts

  • One thing I wish I knew before having kids:

    Don't hang on to expectations so tightly. Things often (mostly) don't go the way you think they will and it's OKAY.

  • Most embarrassing parenting moment:

    Honestly it's anytime my kids lose it in public. It's just so hard to keep composure!

  • If I could swap places with someone for a day, it would be:

    Julie Andrews because she is, hands down, the most awesome human on planet Earth.
