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. Now, my life is consumed with ridiculous amounts of laundry and building blanket forts. 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.
