Leah (but not really) has been writing at her personal site, A Girl and a Boy, since 2003. In 2011 she founded Nice Things Now, an online space designed to inspire acts of kindness that make life more conducive to smiles and hugs. A book editor and harried mom by day, and a writer and harried mom by night, Leah is a staff blogger for Mom365, Work It, Mom!, and Style Lush, and has also written for CafeMom, MamaPop, and AlphaMom. She enjoys sushi, taking photographs, eking an extra ten minutes of sleep, exceeding expectations, and valiantly defending the serial comma. Originally from Salt Lake City, she lives in the San Francisco Bay Area with her husband, two sons, and two cats.
