I'm Alexandra: a mother, wife, native Washingtonian turned New Yorker, raised Puerto Rican, beauty marketer by trade. I write those in no particular order, because they are all equally important and make up our family's every day. While juggling motherhood and working full time, I love connecting with other parents who have the same thoughts, struggles, questions and concerns! As I've learned, it takes a village to make this whole eco-system moving and I'm proud to be another parent on this journey with each of you.
