Looking for Writers & Reviewers
With all of the hustle and bustle of purchasing our first home, I have been thinking about adding a few contributors to the blog. Being a one-woman show is great, and fits my introverted personality well, truth be told, I miss working with and collaborating with other people on a more regular basis.
I’m a North-Central Ohio Lifestyle & Parenting Influencer located just south of Norwalk in a beautiful tiny town called New London. Married to the love of my life, raising 2 wacky & wild teen boys, and trying to keep the fur off everything from our 2 cats.
My website focuses around raising our 2 sons, my marriage, taking care of 2 cats, my personal struggle with being a plus sized woman, anxiety, depression, being crafty, learning how to become a DIY’er, and working from home.
