About the blogger:
I’ve been a PR pro since 1991, an avid social Internet user since 1994 and a blogger since 1999. You do the math – it adds up to make me kind of old.

My “professional” blog, about the sweet spot where PR and social media intersect, languished at larakretler.com. I lost interest in it right around the time we found out we were pregnant.

After a lifetime of focusing on career and self (not necessarily in that order), in July 2009 I learned I had a tiny passenger on board and everything changed. From the moment she was just a speck, smaller than a sesame seed, Zoe changed my world forever. She instantly became captain of the ship. I hope to document our journey together, share what I am learning, and maybe leave something awesome for her to look back on after I’m gone. And hopefully not embarrass her too much along the way.

From selfish and self-centered to super-mom. From proud, avowed childfree DINK to devoted attachment-parenting mama. Is it possible? I hope I’m living proof.

We are PR friendly, love food and travel, and will gladly talk with you about reviews or giveaways. Especially if you are from Disney or associated in any way with cupcakes, please contact me at lara at lara-mom.com (don’t forget the hyphen). In September 2011, long before I actually started this mom blog, I was listed as a favorite Central Ohio mom blogger by Thurber House (an awesome blog in its own right, by the way). I hope to live up to that and then some!

Also, we uphold the latest FTC guidelines about sponsored posts and digital advertising.
