I have been married to wonderful husband for 12 years and we have two beautiful children: Steven is 10 and Sadie is 7. My husband and I are both originally from Michigan, we moved to Land O Lakes 13 years ago. I have a bachelor's Degree in Human Resources and worked at a Worldwide Staffing Firm as a Branch Manager before deciding to stay home with Steven. Since then I am loving the adventures of being home, writing a blog, running, Jazzercising, cooking fun and most-of-the-time healthy meals, and every now and then I sit down with a good book ;) Be sure to follow me on Twitter, Pinterest, and Instagram!
