The Howe To Blog is written by Andrea Rosas Howe, a mom and writer who loves family, travel, the ocean, flip flops and anything with birds on it. She is happiest in or near the water or among stacks of well worn books. Andrea is married to Josh; they are bonded by a love of horror flicks and an unapologetic nerdiness — his, tech-related; hers, grammar-related. Josh is a devoted husband and daddy and a superb guitarist. Absolutely nothing qualifies these two to dole out parenting advice aside from the fact that they have reproduced and are trying very hard at this parenting thing each and every day. And they do so with love and humor. Rarely with grace. Hailey is their only child and the love of their lives. She is equal parts bashful and sassy, loving and feisty. She has a strict no shoes/no pants policy, and only wears them when required by law or social decency. She inherited her parents’ love of words, music, and the sea. The Howes live in Los Angeles with their two dogs and some fish.
