My Personal Passions 

I have been married to my wonderful husband, Travis for 5 years.  We have two amazing little boys.  Alex is 4 and Oliver is 2, needless to say our house is always busy with our wild boys running around.  My world consist of spending time with all 3 of my boys and I wouldn’t have it any other way.  As a family we love to get loud, laugh a lot, play, and cuddle any opportunity we get.   I absolutely love being a boy momma!
