I am from suburban Chicago and grew up with a zest for learning new things. I practiced law for seven years before taking a break to pursue more creative endeavors. I am a mom to two young kiddos and, in my spare time (ha!), like to pretend I'm a back-up dancer, craft cocktails, and run long distances. I published my first book this past summer, maintain an active freelance content creator business, and blog family-friendly activities, DIYs and celebration fun at Not-So-SAHM.
