Hello Dallas Mamas! I'm so proud to be writing for Today's Mama and hope my blogs are helpful and fun. After reading a few of my blogs, you'll learn a little about me and my family. We love spending our time together and finding cool local events. Born and raised in California, I'm a little celebrity obsessed :-). However, I'm also an avid reader and enjoy art and music. I am a firm believer of seizing every moment, working hard, and becoming the best.
