I've been an at home mommy for over 14 years. My 2 girls Marissa (14) and Jessie (8) bring me so much joy. My husband Jim cooks for me, makes me laugh and thinks I'm beautiful without my makeup on. What more could a girl ask for? I'm a social media enthusiast. I ♥ Apple, iPhone, cars, the beach, Disneyland, all things creative and techie. I drive to Hollywood. A lot.

I help manage our daughter's online store Check it out for unique and fun gifts for girls, including bath bombs, emoji pillows, iPhone cases and Marissa's Polaroid Instant Picture Hanging Kit.

I share my passion for cars on WhyThisRide™, a website with car reviews & interviews of car owners who love their ride!
