Reading through this site you'll find my (sometimes rambling, but mostly entertaining) thoughts on decorating, gardening and parenthood together with recipes for everything from bread pudding to savory beef stew... all from the vantage point of living in a small apartment in New York City.
A Bit of Brooklyn started out as an exercise to get back into the swing of creative writing after years of efficient corporate drafting. It was also my way of starting again to live mindfully-- to appreciate not only the little bit of Brooklyn that I live in, but the little bits of life, the small moments that might be forgotten if they're not written down. Writing focuses my ideas, and blogging here gives me a great outlet for sharing these ideas.
Your comments and loyal readership encourages me, so thank you!
