Somebody once asked me, “Who is The Sweetest?” 

It stand for lots of things- my husband, my son the tender scent by his ear, the moment of happiness I encounter amidst days of chaos, a piece of fish cooked to perfection, the way I feel while running, a glass of earthy red wine.

I am not The Sweetest, although most days I do my best.  I am a mother, wife, wine drinker, cook, reader, and runner.  In the rest of my time I teach yoga and knit the same scarf over and over again.  Oh, and I love to eat.  In my previous life I was a registered nurse.  And before that, a 6th grade teacher.

When I started writing I had never even read a blog, much less thought of writing one.  I was one of the least blog-savvy people you know.  I knew nothing about SEO or CSS but plenty about BFF and WTF and LYLAS.

As I live the day to day I strive to discover myself.  Be at peace with myself.  Laugh at myself.  And I spell it out here, on The Sweetest.

Check in for the latest rants, successes and near-failures.

My life is a work in progress.

I learn as I go.

    This is wonderful. I am so impressed. You have created a very professional website that will be very informative and helpful to all Moms. I am passing this on to Greer and Lindsey. It is really exciting to read all about the Meadows clan and see pictures of you, Scott, and precious Hayden. Thanks for keeping me in the loop.
    Love you,

    Hey! I found your blog through a comment you made on mine (thanks, btw…) and am so glad I did. What a fantastic idea for a blog. I struggle with finding interesting things to feed my toddler and I am bookmarking this right now!

    It’s so nice to “meet” another Los Angeles transplant! I too am a mom in progress and I’m just moving forward one day at a time, hoping that I don’t screw up too much.

    Great blog!

    I love your about me. 🙂 I know very little about blogging, SEO, etc. either. I do love your blog, though.
    And to answer your question, I do watch Bored to Death and I LOVE IT!
