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 Brackney home. My husband, Jay, and I have the most gregarious little boy named John. My former self was obsessed with photography and books.

I’ve become a master at reading bedtime stories in character voices, kissing boo-boos, and answering all the curious questions my son throws my way. And I wouldn’t change it for anything.
