Who are you a mom to? I'm mom to Piper! She'll be 18 months old on the 12th. She's the perfect little blend of silly, sassy and sweet. She's quite the chatter box, loves reading, dancing, and singing, and is too clever for her own good. She too LOVES to start her morning at Stroller Strides with her friends.
Would you rather fight one horse-sized duck or one hundred duck-sized horses? Either because they both sound SO cute - I would try to wrangle & tame them because who doesn't want a pet giant duck or miniature horses?
What gets you out of bed every day? Family.
How do you stay fit when you're not working out with FIT4MOM? Running after my child, mostly, but we really enjoy hiking as a family when we have the opportunity.
How do you practice self-care? Always a hot bath, usually a good beer. Saltwater, if time permits.
Where did you grow up and how did you end up in Richmond? I grew up in northern Fauquier County on a working family farm - my whole family still lives on the property! After college I lived in the Outer Banks for a bit, where I finished up everything with a final internship. I loved it and ended up staying much longer than planned. After that (winter of 2009) a couple of my sorority sisters and I decided to move to Richmond. Curt moved here shortly after me, and eventually we moved in together. So, we just kind of landed here.
What is something you're proud of?.... Jonah Hill retweeted me once. Does that count? LOL
How did becoming a mother change you? There's 1,000 amazing things Motherhood has done for me. It truly is the greatest blessing. The immediate thought that comes to mind is that I'm a puddle of emotions these days. Like 24/7. I cry at commercials like anytime at all.
What is your favorite thing about fall? EVERYTHING! The foliage, apple picking, pumpkin spiced lattes, the traditional events, sweater weather. Better question is what do I NOT like about Fall and that answer is NOTHING!
When was the last time you dressed up for Halloween? Last year Curt and I went to the Wes Anderson party at Quirk and dressed up like Richie and Margot Tenenbaum.
