I am Mommy to two beautiful girls and three crazy dogs, so my house is full of love and lots of hair. My husband Spencer and I love spending time with our littles, but while they’re sleeping I craft and he plays handyman since we are consumed with remodeling our home DIY style. I am a proud Rockfordian since birth, so I am passionate about the people, happenings, and assets of this city. If you want to get on my good side, show me a puppy and give me lots of chocolate and Keith Urban.
