The Widest Smile: A parenting blog focused on learning about and raising a baby with cleft lip. When I was about 20 weeks pregnant, my husband and I found out that our son had a cleft lip. This news set us off on a journey we never expected to be a part of. The blog is a reflection on that experience as well as a source for regular updates for friends, family, and anyone who’s interested in learning about the journey.
These are Not Tan Lines: A blog focused on place and travel.
While I lived in Baltimore, I became a Local Expert for Baltimore for the online experiential travel guide, Afar.com. In this role, I wrote and curated guides focused on Baltimore City while also creating highlights about the places I have traveled.
