I am Mom to two beautiful, sassy, extroverted (didn’t get that from me) little girls; Nora (2009) & Meredith (2011). I am a certified child life specialist, but have found my passion project in nurturing this community here in Dayton as well as its sister site in Cincinnati. Motherhood is so many things… powerful, challenging, exhausting, rewarding, life-changing and amazing to name a few. My hope is that you are able to find something that enriches your life through this site, whether that is as simple as a helpful resource, support from local moms or a laugh at the end of a hard day. So glad to be on this journey with all of you!Follow. Lead. Develop. Design. Write. I do all of those things here at Dayton Moms Blog. I am Mama to two kiddos and there are two things I know: parenting is hard and parenting is holy. It’s power and helplessness. It’s exhausting and exhilarating. And in between all of those extremes are lessons, about our kids and about ourselves. It’s my pleasure to capture some of those and share them here.Hello Dayton Mamas! My hubby and I’s love story began at the University of Cincinnati and we now have 2 little kiddos. Our daughter, Harper is full of energy, loves to dance and learn and our newest little joy, Kenneth is such a fun loving little guy! Born and raised in Cincinnati, we now live in Monroe, right in between Dayton and Cincinnati – the best of both worlds! After the birth of our son, I left my Marketing + Business Development job and transitioned into a SAHM working with the Dayton Moms Blog and soaking up my little ones during these early years. I love great food and wine, an incredible cup of coffee, Cincinnati sports (even when they break my heart), and spending time with my family.Originally from Louisiana, my family and I moved to Dayton in the fall of 2015 after my husband completed his commitment to the US Navy. I’m a SAHM to two sweet little boys (born in 2014 & 2016), and I love getting out and exploring everything that this city has to offer with them. My hobbies (when I have time… ha!) include crafting, photography, & baking.Project Manager; ContributorCentervilleHi! I’m Katie, boy mama to 2, wife of a picky eater, photographer, business owner, exercise enthusiast, and food lover. I grew up in Kettering but moved away for college at Ohio University where I got a degree in Commercial Photography. After graduating college I moved to Columbus where I fell in love with my husband and the charm of the capital city! We quickly found ourselves back in Dayton after having our first baby. I never really thought I’d end up back in Dayton but we soon realized how much we wanted to be close to our families after starting our own! We love being back home. I love exploring local restaurants and shops all around Dayton and you’ll probably see me snapping photos to share on Instagram! I run my photography business from home, Blink of an Eye Photography, and even though trying to get things done as a work from home mom is anything but easy, I wouldn’t want it any other way!Social Media Manager; ContributoVandaliaAlthough born and raised in northern Cincinnati, I have settled in Troy for the long haul. I’m a wife to a wonderful man who doubles as an attorney and mother to our little girl, Kensington. I use my English and Writing degrees as a full-time Director of Communications during the day and do everything Moms Blog at night. Along with eating too many chocolate chip cookies, I enjoy ignoring the dishes in the sink and laundry in the dryer. I may not be the best housewife but I believe I was made for mommin!
