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 and social media management, Facebook ad management, PR services, influencer outreach, email marketing and more.)
I have two amazing daughters, Miss C and Miss A. Both my girls are teenagers now and when I started this blog, Miss A was a baby and Miss C was just three.
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 definitely 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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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 like beautiful Los Cabos, Sandestin and St. Augustine, Florida. We’ve also enjoyed local Tennessee travel experiences, such as Wilderness at the Smokies and Gatlinburg Falls Resort. A few years ago we traveled to Orange Beach, Alabama and fell in love with the area. Afterwards I 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; 1,777 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
