Growing up in a small town in Northwest OH, I will never forget the first time I drove the cut in the hill towards Cincinnati and my new city revealed itself! I felt so proud at that moment to be a Cincinnatian. After graduating from BGSU, I took a job here and soon met and married my husband, Greg, a Bearcat from Cleveland. We both quickly embraced all that is Cincinnati. We are blessed with three children, a pair of girls (Emma, 12), (Olivia, 10), and our little guy, Grant, who is 4. I recently became a stay at home mom to homeschool my oldest daughter. Together, we do a lot of exploring around the city. I am the author of My Life From Home lifestyle blog, where I hope to inspire a love of fashion, style, and all things home. I also cofounded a local charity event, Swap for a Change, to benefit local women’s charities. We had our first fundraiser last spring and hope to make it an annual event. I am obsessed with Stitch Fix, throw pillows, coffee, and decorating, however; on most days, you will find me carpooling my kids around the area for all of their various sports, school, and church activities. Life is busy, but I wouldn't have it any other way!
