The great loves of my life are my boys, maple bars, and hand sanitizer. I’ve been married to my very own dreamboat of a soulmate for seven years. We have a completely adored, silly, mischievous son, and a sweet, giggly little girl. I think that there is nothing in the world that's better than laughing so hard you can barely breathe. In our family we have a policy of making that happen at least once a day!
