As an Army Brat, I’ve lived all over the country, but have been fortunate enough to call Orange County home for nearly 20 years. In 2008, I received my Bachelor’s degree in English Literature from California State University of Fullerton. Since then, I’ve enjoyed writing both professionally and personally. I have a small obsession with crocheting (and all things yarn, really) and enjoy reading, spending time with my family, and sipping on a nice glass of red wine. My husband Justin and I have been married since 2012 and recently welcomed our daughter Samantha Jewel into the world. As a new mom, I look forward to being a part of Anaheim Mom’s Blog and connecting with you all through my posts.
