Oh...well....hi there!

Thanks for the great intro Erica!

So I think this may count as my first official public "oh crap, how do I do that?" moment. Because I have NO idea what to say. (This should not be confused with the many private "oh crap, how do I do that?" moments I have had since purchasing PaperBride and PaperMama. But more on those later.)

OK, let's get the formalities out of the way. My name is Liz and, like Erica, I am a native New Yorker. I have been living in LA for over 10 years and I like to think I have a nice mix of East Coast/West Coast sensibilities. I have been married to Jim for 5 years and we have a son who debuted right around the time PaperMama was launched. Coincidence? You decide.

I am so excited to be taking over the reins at PaperBride and PaperMama. I couldn't agree more with Erica's sentiments about the universe lining up. I have L.O.V.E. loved PaperBride and PaperMama from the get-go and when I read that they were for sale, my first thought was "Oh that's too bad. I hope she finds a cool buyer." My Eureka moment came a moment later when I thought "Hey, why don't I buy them?!"

Cut to 6 months later: PaperBride and PaperMama are packing up and heading West - kinda like Thelma & Louise but with a better ending (hope hope). I hope you will all stick around for the ride.

And Erica - you are SO my guest for the Oprah show!
