Originally from Rochester, NY my husband and I moved to Cincinnati in 2011 for his job. I am a stay at home mom to two boys, Jacob and Lucas, who are 18 months and 2 days apart in age!. My husband and I also have a dog named Freckles. As a family, we enjoy time outside at parks, going on walks, the Bengals, and exploring all Cincinnati has to offer a young family! I also enjoy reading, catching up with friends, being crafty and scrapbooking in any free time I have.
