About

Stitches and Press

Hi, I’m Bernice. I live in Virginia with my husband, Aaron, and our son, Max (born January 2015). I created this blog as a way to document the things I love: DIY projects, home decor, fashion and (occasionally) our adorable son.

A little bit about me: I like people who can laugh at themselves, I don’t trust parents who don’t vaccinate their kids, I always take 2 Aleve before wearing high heels and one of my biggest fears is being stuck on an elevator without a snack.

Professionally, I’m a scientist involved in the human microbiome project, which studies how changes in the normal bacteria present on our bodies affect human disease (check out this post looking at the bacteria in my gut). I’m particularly interested in understanding how the microbiome relates to women’s health. It’s nerdy but I love it.

If you want to know a little bit more about me check out these posts from our wedding, these monthly posts from Max’s first year and a few of the geekier posts (graphs included!) that quantify sleep with an infant, quantify diapers and feedings and breakdown the first year cost of having a child.

Thank you so much for stopping by and reading!
