I’m a city girl at heart. A Southside Chicagoan turned New Yorker, I couldn’t imagine living anywhere but a bustling metropolis. Or so I thought. City Lynette met Suburban Lynette in 2008. In a blink of an eye, I went from New York City PR maven to suburban WAHM (work at home mom) with a husband and twins. With marriage and parenting, it’s inevitable that things would change. But my identity was not going to be one of them. I vowed not to lose sight of the things that make me, well, me.
I’ll always love great food, fine wine, traveling and going out with friends. And I see no reason for that to change. Weeknights are still for happy hour. I just have to drop AMPJ off at dance and karate first. Saturdays can still end with gourmet dinner at a nice place, even if that place is your kitchen. Sundays are, and will forever be, made for brunch.
I love making decadent food for sophisticated palates. But let’s be real here, I still have to make my fair share of chicken tenders and fries. And I live for traveling to exotic places around the world. But these days, Disney World is mandatory. So not every post will be Carrie Bradshaw certified. Expect to see a few “kid-approved” meals and family friendly ideas. But on the whole, I believe there will be plenty of the grown and sexy to go around.
Living Remixed is my quest to prove that being a good partner and parent doesn’t have to be at the expense of personal fulfillment. I hope my love for cooking, traveling and entertaining inspires you to maintain a happy and healthy existence on your terms.
