In a little over a day, I will be on a plane with this lovely lady, on our way to Nashville for an amazing week with some of my favorite people, and while I will be missing my family something awful, there will be lots to occupy my time – FABULOUS sessions, speakers, and to top it all off, Chris Mann, Joe Jonas AND Rascal Flatts!!
I’m equally excited to meet lots of new (and not-so-new) attendees, so for them, a bit about me:
I am a Southern California born (but Southern bred) mom of 2 squirrely boys, ages 9 and 6. I spent 15 years as a hairstylist, and it was my dream job – I got paid to be social, make women GORGEOUS, and play in makeup, mousse, and curlers. I decided to become a stay-at-home mom when my oldest was born 13 weeks premature. I discovered blogging after my youngest was born in 2005, and was looking for other moms to connect with. Domestic Chicky was born in November of 2005 as a way to share my awkward attempts to be a modern day Martha Stewart.
Don’t laugh – it could happen!
I may not have the cooking and cleaning mastered, but I did have the accessories! I fell in love with Aprons, and founded The Apronista in 2007 to share my love for aprons. It quickly grew as more and more people fell for aprons, and last year I turned it over to the fabulous Shawnee, whose love for aprons is equal to my own.
I also developed a knack for blog design, and launched Design Chicky around the same time – I have been blessed to work with mom bloggers, food bloggers, gossip blogs, and even a few corporations! I love coaching new bloggers on the ins and outs of blogging and social media.
In my spare time (HA!), I have followed a lifelong love of photography into a business I am passionate about as well. I love taking pictures of adorable babies, families and kids, but I REALLY love doing boudoir. Not glamour shots, or Maxim style, but just showing EVERY woman that they are beautiful and SEXY.
On the personal side, I love GLITTER, cupcakes, books, flea markets, Pinterest, vintage anything, dried mango, good coffee, funky eyeglasses and a really good steak.
