I am a Cincinnati girl, born and raised. After a brief hiatus to attend the University of South Carolina (go Cocks!), my husband and I moved back home with a 1 year old in tow (she's now 10!). Since then, we have added three more kiddos to our family (ages 6, 4 and 2), and I am lucky enough to hang out with them all day. We love reading, getting crafty, and making huge messes that we will definitely clean up...tomorrow. When I'm not surrounded by children, I dabble in exercise, enjoy reading a good book, and can frequently be found binging on Netflix with my favorite guy. About a year ago, a Pinterest “I can do that!” project painting little superheroes for my son turned into an Etsy shop (etsy.com/shop/woolyllama) which I manage to run in my “free time”. I may be slightly sleep deprived, but I wouldn't trade a minute of my crazy, busy, wonderful life!

I am not a put together kind of girl. Most everything I wear has a hole (or two, or three). Those rare items that are without, are most likely speckled with grease stains or...

Real Heroes

A few weeks ago, while running errands with my two youngest children, my 4 year old son got unusually quiet. After a few moments, he spoke. “Fireman, policeman, ambulance man.” Another pause, and then, “Hey...

Going Gray

My children like to point out on a relatively frequent basis, the patch of hair near the front of my head that has turned a much lighter color than it used to be. I never expected...
