Hello! I’m Kristine Munroe-Mahoney. I’m a 26 year old music & food loving Jersey girl residing outside of Boston, in West Newton, Massachusetts.
I’m a blogging veteran. I first began blogging in June of 2000, where most of my posts were about how I hated where I lived, how my mom drove me nuts, and how I wasn’t sure what to do with my life. I blogged at OpenDiary but nobody really referred to them as blogs.
A little about my history? I was born in Brooklyn, and I moved to New Jersey as a little kid, where I spent most of my life. When I was almost sixteen in 1997, my dad took a job in California, so we picked up our lives and moved to the San Francisco Bay Area. I lived there for 6 years, but it wasn’t really my home. As much as I dreamt about moving back to New York, I didn’t think I’d actually ever do it because of my immediate family living in California. But I didn’t expect to meet a really amazing guy in December of 2003. And I certainly didn’t expect that amazing guy to be moving to Boston seven weeks after we met.
That guy, Matt, moved to Watertown, MA in February 2004. In April, he flew out to Oakland so we could pack up my little Toyota Corolla and drive all the way to Massachusetts. And here we are! In August 2005 we bought a home in West Newton, where we reside now. We got married on September 22, 2007.
I couldn’t be happier. I fell in love with New England in 1995, when we took a few vacations to Vermont that summer. I continue to love New England for its beautiful scenery, richness in history and culture, and all the stuff there is to do.
Together we like to see live music, dine out, karaoke, play cards, camp, mini golf, and explore the area. We travel down to New York and New Jersey regularly to visit friends and family, which is always fun.
Career-wise, I am in the field of internet marketing, trying to get more into writing, and Matt is a biologist. He studies flies. :-)
I also write for (and moderate) The Garden City: A Newton Blog.
