About the Author


Small town girl.  Lover of stories.  Believer in God, family, America, and in finding beauty in both the past and the here and now.

I grew up alongside my five siblings as our parents dreamed and worked and picked themselves up time and again while creating their small business .  Interestingly, I married my high school sweetheart, who now co-owns his own small family business with his brother- the same business that he grew up in, working alongside his dad.  We have five kids of our own (who are pretty cool, if I must say so myself), and both understand the grit and determination it takes to build our own dreams.  I feel honored to share our story here and join my parents and brothers in their desire to create a welcoming, positive spot – where we can share stories and resources for those wanting to make memories with the people they love the most.
