Welcome! I’m a 48-year-old Nashville working mom who loves social media, fashion, travel, rescue dogs, and a glass of red wine or margarita on the rocks (preferably while at the beach.) I launched my blog in 2005. My first tagline was Blogging Between Deadlines and Diapers Changes and my blog has evolved from one of the first mom blogs to more of a lifestyle blog. Like you, I try to juggle it all – work, motherhood, marriage, carpooling, homework and hormones.
Looking for my business website? Please visit Little Black Dress Marketing. I can put together a custom proposal for your business and offer a full suite of content marketing services (blog management, social media management, Facebook ad management, PR services, influencer outreach, email marketing and more.)
I have two amazing daughters, Miss C and Miss A. Miss C played soccer and travel soccer for years and is now a sophomore in HIGH SCHOOL (I can’t believe we have a high schooler in the house!) She just went on her first mission trip to Mexico in June. Miss A plays the bassoon, just taught herself to play the ukulele and has her own bath scrubs business with her BFFs called Pure Pineapple.
Although I live in the suburbs, I’m really a country girl at heart. When I was a kid I had pet chickens, read lots of Nancy Drew and couldn’t wait to get my driver’s license so I could cruise “town” with my friends. I’m a Leo, barely 5 ft. 2, and afraid of heights and opening cans of biscuits. I met my husband in high school and he puts up with my many blonde moments, hence my blog’s name.
I blog about everything from parenting to our beloved mutts to whatever else tickles my fancy, such as fashion and travel. I’m definitely not at a perfect mom or Martha Stewart. You’ll find more dog hair than DIY at our house!
I am a jeans, t-shirts, and boots mom, although I once got my glamour girl on in Beverly Hills.
I enjoy partnering with brands and I reach an audience of moms who wield major purchasing power! Email me at email@example.com if you are interested in a sponsored post and click here for my media kit.
As a professional blogger I’ve been fortunate to collaborate with national brands:
I love to write about family travel and have reviewed fantastic destinations such as the Westin and Sheraton in gorgeous Los Cabos, Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort and St. Augustine, Florida, my husband’s old stomping grounds. We’ve also enjoyed local Tennessee travel experiences, such as Wilderness at the Smokies and Gatlinburg Falls Resort. Last fall we traveled to Orange Beach, Alabama and fell in love with the area. I recently returned for a girlfriends’ getaway experience.
Social media? I am a fan girl:
- 6,558 Twitter followers; 1,943 Facebook fans; 4,366 Pinterest followers; 1,771 Instagram followers
- Former featured blogger on the Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt Wishing Well blog and monthly contributor to the ADS Security blog

I have a journalism degree from Western Kentucky University and I am past president of Femcity Nashville. I work as a contract PR professional and content marketing writer and I’d be happy to help you with any copywriting or social media management needs you may have. I own Little Black Dress Marketing here in Nashville and I help clients manage and optimize their social media and blog content and I ghost write for a best-selling wellness author and counselor.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
