I go by Anna here. My husband goes by M. Our daughter goes by “Clementine,” because it’s a cute-enough name for a blog, but too cute for real life (though there was a Clementine in my not-too-distant family tree, and I assume she was adorable based on her name). And this kid loves clementines. She’s two and a half.
M and I lived in Manhattan and Brooklyn for about 10 years before we moved to a town in NJ I like to refer to as “West Brooklyn,” because there are so many ex-Brooklynites here. Our house is blue, up on a hill, and was neglected for quite a while. We’re in the process of giving it a big, expensive hug. Hopefully nothing will actually blow up in the process. Oh my god.
I freaking love the suburbs.
