Despite the hot and humid summers she loves Atlanta and all that it has to offer for her and her family. After becoming a first-time mom, writing became an outlet for her to openly share all about motherhood; the good the bad, and the ugly. After blogging on her own for some time, she was thrilled when she found the Atlanta Mom community. A former teacher and now stay-at-home-mom, you can usually find her chasing around her boys.
