I am a stay at home Boy Mama to Hunter & Duke- the loves of my life! These days it seems we are non-stop busy busy BUSY! I was born in Chicago but grew up and still live in North Scottsdale. (I lived in San Diego for a couple years in between & still spend a lot of time there). For 17 years (before having my boys) I worked as a TV News Producer/Reporter. I am blessed I still get to keep my foot in the door and freelance at the station every once in a while. My hubby Scott and I try to plan some sort of "adventure" every weekend to get out & about with the boys whether in town or out, but I must admit I love nothing more than curling up with a good book and a cozy blanket! I am always looking for a good book recommendation- so please send it on over!
