Ultimate Blog Party!!!!

Ultimate Blog Party 2009

thanks to suzanne, I decided to join the party.

I got into blogging last year because of Suzanne. I've known her on message boards for awhile, but I've gotten to know her much better since entering the blogosphere. I've also met several others whose blogs I am starting to love, and look forward to meeting even more bloggers now that I've joined the party.

So I guess that means I have to introduce myself.

I am a single mom from Long Island. My older daughter, Jen, is a college freshman, going to school in New England. Younger daughter, Becca, is a high school junior. I am also an attorney with an insurance company, with offices in Jersey City, NJ, a really "wonderful" commute. I sit on the board of trustees at my synagogue (which means I do a lot of volunteer work there!), and I am active in various fundraisers for the American Cancer Society, currently planning for this year's Relay for Life.

I like ot take photos, so you'll see many of them in this blog. I've posted video taken from my phone, but I haven't tried to post stuff I've taken with my Flip yet.

so please come in, sit down and make yourself comfortable. I'll make a pot of coffee and we can chat.
