Welcome, I’m so glad you came! Since you found your way here, you’re either wanting to know a little more about me, or you clicked on that link by accident. Either way, you’re in for a treat.
So what about me?
I’m a mom. I have 2 spunky, spirited girls who challenge and push me everyday and influence absolutely everything I do.
I’m a writer. If the menu headers weren’t a giveaway, I kind of have a thing for alliteration.
I’m a marketing consultant. Helping brands find the right message and method to reach moms in a meaningful way is my happy place (there I go with the alliteration again).
I’m a (fill in the blank). Wife, social media junkie, plus size fashion lover, bibliophile, baker, blogger, friend, teacher, music lover, the list goes on and on. All of these facets allow me to fill this blog with the things I love and am passionate about. They allow me to speak on behalf of the brands who represent these niches, and speak to the people who want to be inspired by an authentic narrative.
What will you find on the blog?
A little bit of everything! I’m definitely a foodie, and I have a serious love affair with cake decorating (not to mention party planning). I’m slowly discovering the world of plus size fashion and learning how the number on my clothes tags has absolutely no relation to my abilities or my worth. Don’t miss regular guest posts from local parent & food bloggers, Kay Levis and Angela Baxter!
Above all you will find a whole lot of family on my blog. My world revolves around my hubby and girls and it shows in what I write! From family travel, to fun events to great resources and awesome products, if it has anything to do with family, you’ll find it here!
Most importantly you’ll notice a lot of love for children with life threatening illnesses and defects and the people who care for them, as well as the overwhelming number of people suffering from infertility, miscarriages, stillbirths and infant/child loss. I hold these topics (and people) near to my heart and am passionate about supporting them in anyway I can.
My family definitely can be work, but I’m lucky that my work often involves my family, so my work-life balance is a happy, messy, undefinable thing. I divide my time between my computer and my kitchen, creating and consuming in both areas. My creations live not only on this blog, but on Creative Sides and Word of Mom Marketing, not to mention Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram, Youtube, and Google +.
