I’m Meghan. I grew up in Cleveland, OH and graduated from college in 2004 with a degree in journalism. I moved to Phoenix that summer for an internship and stayed for a job. I met my husband, fell in love, got married, and had a kid. I love the Cleveland Browns, anything with chocolate, weekend road trips and Arizona sunsets. I hike, I bake, I read. Sometimes I’m sentimental, sometimes I’m overwhelmed, and sometimes I laugh when my kid throws a tantrum. I write whatever I’m feeling on any given day… It just so happens that I feel sarcastic more often than not. Read some of my favorite posts here.

He’s Mike. He grew up in Bethlehem, PA and graduated from (a different) college in 2004 with a degree in journalism. He moved to Phoenix that summer for a job and met moi. He loves many things, but nothing more than Phillies baseball. He gets dragged along on many weekend road trips but doesn’t seem to mind. He cooks up something amazing for dinner almost every night, which is 95 percent of the reason why I married him.

This is our little man, Ryan:

He got his dad’s good looks and his mom’s impatience. He has dark green eyes that make us swoon. He’s a huge fan of cars, trucks, dinosaurs, Mickey Mouse Clubhouse and water bottles. He loves to be entertained with song and he loves to dance in his highchair. We love him like whoa.

About Phase Three Of Life

Phase One of my life was growing up in Ohio. Being a kid. Discovering I liked to write. Going to college to try to learn how to do it better.

Phase Two started the day I packed up my mom’s car and headed for Arizona. It included two jobs, a whole lot of writing, one husband and one pregnancy. (Read more about Phase Two here.)

And then…

Phase Three started early in the morning on Sept. 21, 2010, at the moment my son was born. Now I’m learning how to raise my kid, how to balance all of my responsibilities and how to maintain my sense of self — hopefully with a little bit of humor and fun.
