Story
Introduction

I'm a city mama at heart who is trying to find joy and balance in the suburbs. I'm a mom to 3 amazing kids and one beautiful angel. I used to live in heels and dream of traveling the world, she now lives in her minivan and dreams of a clean kitchen.

Motherhood is Sticky, so I write. You can enjoy the mess at Peanut Butter in my Hair

Because the journey is better with friends, founder of Bigger Picture Blogs

When I moved to the suburbs I learned, you don't always have to go to the city to have fun. So I created Little Lake County
