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.
