I am Cincinnati born and raised and after briefly moving to Boston for college, I am thrilled to be back and raising my kids in the city that has always been my home. I am Mom to two beautiful, sassy, extroverted (didn’t get that from me) little girls; Nora (2009) & Meredith (2011). It was only after becoming a mother that I really started to appreciate how lucky we are to live in this city, surrounded by amazing green space, culture, history, sports, and the arts. We have access to just about everything a family could want. I love using all aspects of Cincinnati as a playground for my kids and myself. I also love photography, sea turtles and my job as a child life specialist. I am thrilled to be a part of bringing this resource to amazing moms in an amazing city.Owner; FounderAndersonFollow. Lead. Develop. Design. Write. I do all of those things here in Cincinnati because it has everything I love: busy city, quiet country, great food, sports teams that break my heart (and sometimes make my day), unique fun, and the people who matter the most to me. I am Mama to two kiddos and there are two things I know: parenting is hard and parenting is holy. It’s power and helplessness. It’s exhausting and exhilarating. And in between all of those extremes are lessons, about our kids and about ourselves. It’s my pleasure to capture some of those and share them here.Business Development ManagerMonroeI’ve lived in Cincinnati my whole life. I proudly grew up on the West Side, but much to the confusion of my childhood friends moved to the northeast area of Cincy. I attended the School for Creative and Performing Arts as a writing major for two years, then transferred and graduated from Colerain High School. I married my wonderful husband Joe in 2011, and we welcomed our sweet daughter Rozlyn in early 2016. If I could host a dream dinner with women I admire I would dine with Ina Garten, Maya Angelou, my late Gram, Eleanor Roosevelt, and Jennifer Lawrence. I am a boy band lover at heart and will drop everything the moment I hear “I Want It That Way” to sing and dance along. You can ask for proof from anyone at the grocery store! My other passions are cooking, reading, mom’s groups, being involved with my church, and enjoying every minute I can as a SAHM.Project Manager; ContributorReadingI grew up in a very small town in southern Kentucky but have lived in Cincinnati for the last 13 years! Who says you cant have roots and wings? I love my southern roots but Cincinnati has so much to offer right in our backyard! My family currently lives on the west side of the city, which I am told is the “best side”. However, since I am not originally from Cincinnati I feel like I am able to see the beauty that is offered from all sides of the city. Cincinnati offers my children and my family opportunities that “back home” could never offer and for that, I am grateful. In my spare time you will find me doing anything and everything outdoors! I love collecting experiences and not “things” even though I am a sucker for antiques. Lastly, I am so excited to be on the CMB team!I was born in Cincinnati, but grew up in northwest Ohio. After graduating from Miami University, I worked on websites for the Dayton Daily News and Chicago Tribune. Before starting our family, my husband, Nick, and I moved home from Chicago to the west side of Cincinnati where he grew up. We've been here for 17 years now and have two wonderful boys. I'm currently a freelancer, specializing in web design, editing and content creation. Being a freelancer allows me to run my boys to their various sports, music and academic events, while allowing me to stay in the working world. In my spare time, I love to read, go to Pure Barre classes and travel whenever possible!I grew up in a small town in Southeastern Ohio where my grandfather opened Wilson’s Studio, which my father eventually took over. I attended Ohio University (yes, that’s one of the highest-ranking party schools in the nation) where I studied Commercial Photography. After graduation in 2010 from said ‘party school’, my husband and I moved to Utah. We enjoyed six lovely years there, granting us two little girls and some of my greatest memories to date. More recently, my husband was offered a position in Cincinnati, and we couldn’t pass it up. We knew how much it would mean to the (now) grandparents and our girls. After deciding to make the move back to the Buckeye State, we set up shop in Liberty Township and couldn’t be happier with the place we now call home. Don’t get me wrong, being a full-time mom and entrepreneur isn’t a walk in the park, but it’s one of the most fulfilling experiences I’ve had yet
