auntie christine

February 17, 2008

The cat’s finally out of the bag: My brother Ricky and his wife Brooke are expecting a baby in July. I’m going to be an Auntie, and I am so excited!

One of my favorite things to do lately is think about this little human growing inside Brooke’s belly, wondering whether it is a boy or a girl, imagining what he or she will look, and act, like.

It’s such a beautiful mystery to me, and I am humbled by the possibilities.

  • I'm Christine, and this is a slice of my life—a sweet, rich, wildly indulgent slice that would taste really good with a scoop of Breyers vanilla bean ice cream. Read more >>

  • I run a darling, friendly, little graphic design studio.
    I look on the bright side.
    I take photos. Lots of photos.
    I wish on stars and on websites.

  • I built my first web site 7 years ago and got 15 seconds of fame. (It changed my life.)
    I launched, then relaunched, an online magazine.
    I admitted to several embarrassing crushes.
    I consumed more bacon than any human should and lived to tell the tales.
