I Wish I Could Be A House Manager

OK, I have known this lady for a little while but never knew that this is her job. I'm pretty sure I would be totally cut out to be a house manager - and live in New York... maybe. Enjoy getting to know Rebekah below!

Hello readers of The Samantha Life! My name is Rebekah and I blog over at Blue Giraffes and Concrete Jungles.

Samantha has been awesome enough to let me take her space today- and when first offered the gig I kind of panicked. I had nothing to talk about, and honestly I still don't. My mind is blank. So with my lacking inspiration I decided I would just let you guys get to know me, and hopefully I can get to know you too.

First off, my name is Rebekah (see that K in there?). It's a little different than the normal spelling, but I will let you know it is still pronounced just the same. You would be very surprised of how many ways I've heard it. I will respond to Rebekah, Bek, Bekah, Monkey, Babekah, but never Becky. No, It's Becky- but really I hate Becky. It you don't want to be friends with me then you should use that name.

I live in NYC- been here for about 5.5 years and I still can't believe it myself. New York is a rockin' place and I very much appreciate the seasons because I grew up in Florida. Game-changer! My father works for Disney World (it is okay to be jealous) and I was sick of the heat. After college, in Virginia at a very small private women's college called Hollins, I moved even further up. So far no regrets.

Here in NY I have kind of a funky job, I work as a house manager. You might now be asking yourself, What is a house manager? and I will tell you. It means in a weird way my job is to be a stay-at-home mom. I'm the chef, the nanny, the personal assistant, the liaison between other household staff members and service providers. I'm the everything. I work long hours and am sometimes crazy busy and other times I just sit around all day and blog. Welcome to NY, where someone is able to hire someone else to manage their lives. The coolest thing about my job is that (even though I probably shouldn't post this on the internet!) Tim Gunn lives in their building. I see him about once a month and we like to chat the weather. I also travel with them, and we usually go first class. bling bling.

Which brings me to my blog! I think it is a great space- a place that is comfortable, mostly happy and about a real life. I do a lot of book reviews (an addiction!), recipes (perk of the job) and travel. I'm also that typically blogger who tells you about their fun-filled (or lazy) weekend. I'm a tv-fiend, bookworm galore, and trying to find my place in the world just like each and every one of you.

I hope you can stop by and say hello- hit me up on any of the following spaces!
