About

LN3_2656

I am a stay-at-home mother to twins, thanks to modern science. I somewhat resemble a giraffe, hence the weird variation on that word as my nom du plume. I also sometimes say obnoxious, pretentious things like nom du plume. I love traveling, reading, pretending to be glamorous, and eating at really fancy restaurants. I hate cleaning messes, seeing my hair with its natural roots showing through, being tired and eating at home. The truth is that I do very few of the former and a lot of the later.

Official credentials: I was named a Best Infertility Blog by Allparenting.com. My articles have been syndicated on BlogHer and one of my posts, “A Bird’s Eye View of Your Life,” was featured as a BlogHer Spotlight. I have written for the Ricki Lake Show’s blog. I was nominated for a WeGo Health Activist Award and I was one of three bloggers (in addition to Keiko Zoll from The Infertility Voice and Leah from Single Infertile Female) chosen to speak at the 2012 Fertility Focus Telesummit. And I participate in the “Bitter Infertiles” podcast from time to time.

  1. Love your bio, makes me want to know more about you 🙂

  2. I didn’t get your email … 😦 Did you send it to justine.h.levine? gma.il?

  3. This is one of the best “about me” pages that I’ve ever read.

  4. Hey girl, what’s your email? I want to connect with you about something, shoot me a message when you get a chance 🙂 eggceptionalblues@gmail.com

  5. I was a surrogate for my college roommate/best friend. I am adopted and I’ve placed a child for adoption. Ive been married for 17 years, we have two children. This blog speaks to me on so many levels. So happy I found it!

  6. I’ve nominated you for the Beautiful Blogger Award! If you’re interested, follow award rules on my page. If you aren’t into the awards thing, that’s ok, too!

  7. Hmmmm… your bio sounds amazingly like mine, although I’m not a stay-at-homer. I also have twins thanks to science and our niece, who was a gestational carrier for us after years of failed IVF’s and miscarriages. I work almost full time, my husband is a chef/ restaurant owner- we are also “foodies.” I have started to try to write my story as a book, but in the interim am writing a blog of my own. (which I juts started for the NoBloPoMo for November). I’m finding the nightly ritual of writing very cathartic, but haven’t really brought myself to write the “meat” of my story yet. Maybe I’ll start on that tonight… In any case, thanks for this inspiring site, and congrats on your writing successes! And maybe check out my blog, iMags?… 🙂
