About

Hi, I'm Rebecca Woolf. Welcome to Girl's Gone Child!
IMG_2626
I'm a thirty-year old mother of four, writer of much, living in Los Angeles with my husband, Hal, two dogs and a brand new minivan I've already severely dented. I've been blogging since 2003, on Girl's Gone Child since 2005 when I gave birth to my first child, Archer. I was twenty-three at the time and newly married to a man I barely knew. After three rocky years of marriage, my husband Hal and I fell in love and agreed to stay married for as long as we were willing and able to put up with one another. (We've been married seven years which is insane.) Even more insane, we had our second child (Fable) in October, 2008 and in January of last year, I got pregnant with our third and fourth children, twin girls (Boheme and Reverie) born September 13th.

For the last six and a half years I've posted daily musings on family life, love, style, and music with weekly guest-posts written by my mom (and fellow vegetarian) Wendy "WWW" Woolf. 

GGC has been featured in the The New York Times, Time Magazine, Huffington Post, Angeleno and NPR, was recently named Blog of the Year by Babble.com and was a finalist for Lifetime Achievement in the 2011 Bloggies. As well as blogging here and elsewhere, I can also be found at Momversation.com (as a panelist) Kin Community, Babble.com and HGTV.com, where I'll be hosting and curating "ChildStyle: with Rebecca Woolf" a web series about nursery/children's room decor. I'm also the author of Rockabye: From Wild to Child (Seal Press, 2008) and have contributed essays and stories and multiple anthologies including the latest The Moment and Crush and in a former life, wrote dozens of stories (and yes, poems) for the Chicken Soup for the Teenage Soul and Teen Love Series books. Along with writing for web and print I also occasionally write scripted things because I live in Los Angeles and Final Draft software comes free with your first apartment. Photos that appear on this site were taken with an Olympus Pen, iPhone or Canon PowerShot Elph.
