Happy Fourth of July!
Happy 4th of July! I hope you have a fire cracker of a good day. We're planning to keep it low-key but get a lot of work done around the house.

Introduction
I am an obsessive knitter, writer, foodie, photographer and Mother who once upon a time worked in social media marketing and public relations. My love for blogging and local reporting drives my desire to write about the latest parenting hotspot, the best place to brunch, where to get the best workout and who has the best local yarn store.
