I was born and raised in Michigan, went to Michigan State University (#GoGreen) where I met my husband, relocated to Virginia, lived the city life in a D.C. rowhouse and had a son, and then moved to the countryside of Maryland and had our daughter.
I have the hardest time drinking enough water throughout the day. But coffee? Yes, I don't have any problems sipping coffee throughout the day. I have at least 2-3 cups a day. I love the flavor and feeling of coffee ... it's so cozy.
I'm an Irish girl through and through and, as one could imagine, I prefer the mountains over the beach any day. My dream home would be somewhere in Banff or Ireland. One of the things I love about Maryland? We're so close to mountains!
I wanted to be a veterinarian when I was young. Oh, and I always thought I would have six dogs at the same time. Well, I realized that I hated math and science so being a vet was out. We rescued two dogs a year apart and love them to pieces.
Growing up, my bedroom was a little on the messy side. My Grammy would always do a room check when she visited to teach me how to keep a room tidy. Now, I'm all about a clean house. My obsession with cleanliness is a bit ridiculous, but it's the only way I can function.
I spent pretty much my entire childhood at the ice rink since I was a figure skater and my brother and dad were hockey players. I cried happy tears when I laced up my son's skates for the first time. One of my favorite moments ever was ice skating on Lake Louise in Banff.
My green thumb is a constant work in progress. My husband loves to joke around about me not having one, but I'm determined to figure out how to keep plants alive. We actually ate vegetables from our garden and I was one proud plant mama.
based on being simple yet true. By keeping sessions organic and having a go-with-the-flow attitude, the end result will be a photo gallery full of genuine moments that families will look back on and smile.
