The last time I crimped my hair I was 14 years old pining away for Simon LeBon of Duran Duran. (Why, oh why, wouldn’t he love me? Sniff…) The last time I used AquaNet I was 16 getting ready for a show choir competition. (Jazz hands and big hair that never moved, by God!) That is, until this past Saturday night’s Momz Share event. Pac Man, wax lips, Michael Jackson, big hair, movie posters, leg warmers… we had them all! It was so great to connect with all of the bloggers and social media mavens that attended! Special thanks to…

What to say about the Fall Momz Share event? Should I start by telling you about how I completely forgot my pants (yes, I said PANTS) and had to go back and fetch them?

Maybe I will skip that part and begin my tale with the scruptious food from Piv’s Restaurant or the social media themed cupcakes. Hmmm….But if I did that I would be missing the heart of the event, which is the bloggers themselves. These women are my tribe,…

My life has moved so fast since last December, sometimes my head spins.  I left a secure job in the non-profit sector and started a new company with another power mom. I teamed up with a dear friend and blogger to form Momz Share. And, oh yeah, I’ve started training for the New York City Marathon. Hectic much? Kinda. People often ask me how I “do it all.” Honestly, I’m not really sure how to answer that question.  I know that for me, what I choose to do doesn’t feel like WORK.  It is, well…FUN.  “Doing it all” in this case…

On Saturday night Lara Dipaola and I had the privilege of launching Momz Share and playing host to 45 amazing DC Metro area bloggers!
