Since boot-strapping Bloom and Speak with her husband, she has slowly gone from being a work from home mama to a stay at home mama. When she is not looking after her son, she is hiking, doing pilates, blogging at Sweet Julian , chilling with the husband, or painting something. She always enjoys a good iced cup of cafe au lait or her husband's special brew of buttered coffee to help her get through her very busy day. Follow her on [Pinterest] & [Instagram].
