The oldest of seven, I was born on February 14th, a Valentine baby. I’ve lived literally all over the country, but am happy to have finally settled down and I call Binghamton home. Out of all the women in the world, my husband picked me and I’m blessed because Jay still romances me, even though we’ve known each other for over a decade. Together, Jay and I have the most gregarious little boy named John. My former self was obsessed with photography and books. Now, my life is consumed with ridiculous amounts of laundry and building blanket forts. I’ve become a master at reading bedtime stories in character voices, kissing boo-boos, and cuddling a toddler to sleep. And I wouldn’t change it for anything- my life is now complete.
