Eliza

Hi there, internet dwellers – I’m Eliza David.  I am a busy wife to a busy husband, as well as a mom to two rambunctious children (a boy, 8 and a girl, 4).  By day, I serve as a coordinator at a globally-renowned educational firm.  But by night and the wee hours of the following morning, I’m a self-published author dabbling in the world of blogging.  I enjoy reading (I could live two lifetimes and never complete my To Be Read list), fitness, NetFlix, and – of course – writing about the imaginary characters in my head. I’ve published four books and struggle to put my laptop away long enough to really enjoy life outside of the confines of my imagination. But really – it’s so much fun in there!

The Autumn Body

June 13, 2016

Since spring doesn't exist in Iowa, the late winter season can be deceiving. We got rain, hail, sleet, and snow during the month of April. There may have been some sunshine sprinkled in there, I cannot recall. The unpredictability of the weather lulled the laziest among us (ME!) into thinking that summer's heat and high humidity wasn't in sight.

Kindergarten cop out

Something strange is happening with my four-year-old daughter, whom I affectionately call 'The Divette'. (Keep reading - you'll note very quickly why she has this name.)

Busy moms. If there were ever a redundant phrase, that would be it.

Dude, I am the most mixed-up feminist ever. Like, for real.
