As a longtime Orange County native, I love all things OC: The Angels, the mouse, the beach and everything in between. I’m mom to big brother Hunter and baby sister Mekenzie as well as two rescue pit bulls named Jack and Zoe. I met my husband Kevin shortly after graduating from CSUF and have bounced around north Orange County ever since. Follow me on my adventures on my blog: Elena B in the OC at www.elenabosch.com.
