Wife to Zach, mama to Zoe and Eliza. We also have a Great Dane, Olive (the best and worst dog). They are my very favorites.

celebrations should be just a little bit over the top (particularly Valentine's
If I had to choose one meal

University of Georgia graduate. Georgia will always feel like coming home.
