Hello to you, the rare person who clicks the “about” button.  I’m an American mother of 4 teenagers living in London for the foreseeable future.  We moved here when the kids were 2, 4, 6 and 8 and if you think that’s hard, try going through a double mastectomy with reconstruction from your stomach fat, a node dissection, 8 rounds of chemo and then a bilateral oopherctomy, all while hiding your baldness from your kids.  Moving our family across an ocean was a breeze in comparison.  I’m a breast cancer pre-vivor and survivor (rare but it’s a thing) and a staunch advocate of breast health and finding the humor in everything.

Former  fashion marketing director, copy editor, cookie designer and PTA president . Current blogger and guest writer on the parenting website http://www.sammichespsychemeds.com.

The daily energy I expend outsmarting my teenage kids is equivalent  to  a 2 hour spin class done at an extremely high altitude, but more recently I’ve found my outlet in brain dumping into my blog. Welcome and enjoy!
