- Did your family just move to the St. Louis area and you’re looking for cool family activities?
- You’re a local, but you just became a mom. (Congrats!)
- Are you visiting my awesome city because we have a free Zoo and so much more? Cool, I’ve got some tips for you!
But that’s not all I talk about...
Maybe you found me through Mitch’s really cool Minecraft Creeper Halloween costume and you’re wondering if there’s more where that came from. Yes! We not only love to do Minecraft crafts, my younger son is a board certified* Cardboard Artist. He’s been on TV and made his own logo.
*We made that up. Except for the logo…he really made that.
I believe in playing with your kids, whether it’s breaking out the crayons, chasing them through a maze at the Missouri Botanical Garden or letting them teach you how to play Minecraft!
I’m an at-home mom with a background in journalism. I’ve been a freelance editor and columnist for Patch.com and a stringer for the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. I’ve written for Boys’ Life, Missouri Life and few blogs here and there.
Every week I bring fun weekend plans to your email box via St. Louis Magazine, and I’ve done a few recipes and crafts on Great Day St. Louis and Show Me St. Louis. Recently I was really excited to get recognized as the Best Family Blog with a St. Louis focus from the Midwest Influencer Network, and last summer I was a finalist in Explore St. Louis’ search for a Summer Ambassador. Pretty cool!
Interested in working with me? I love reviewing kid friendly products and all things local to St. Louis. My boys are 9 and 18, so I don’t really do baby stuff anymore, but I’m hip deep in Hot Wheels, homework, XBox, Minecraft and all the noisy stuff that makes raising boys fun. We’re into outdoor adventures (both boys are scouts), arts and crafts, hiking, biking and all kinds of St. Louis fun.
