I grew up in a small town in Southeastern Ohio where my grandfather opened Wilson’s Studio, which my father eventually took over. I attended Ohio University (yes, that’s one of the highest-ranking party schools in the nation) where I studied Commercial Photography. After graduation in 2010 from said ‘party school’, my husband and I moved to Utah. We enjoyed six lovely years there, granting us two little girls and some of my greatest memories to date. More recently, my husband was offered a position in Cincinnati, and we couldn’t pass it up. We knew how much it would mean to the (now) grandparents and our girls. After deciding to make the move back to the Buckeye State, we set up shop in Liberty Township and couldn’t be happier with the place we now call home. Don’t get me wrong, being a full-time mom and entrepreneur isn’t a walk in the park, but it’s one of the most fulfilling experiences I’ve had yetI was born in New York and lived in several states before settling down in my favorite city of all time - Cincinnati! I have a biracial family that consists of my amazing and talented husband (Derek) and our beautiful, silly daughter (Adilyn). I work full-time in addition to running the Cincinnati and Dayton Mom Collectives, am in school full time for my MBA, write and illustrate children's books (search "Author Courtney Jayne Snow" on Amazon), and am a registered and certified nutritional consultant (RNC/CNC). I still do my best to be the best mom and wife I can be! I love art museums, the theatre, the zoo, reading, and Cincinnati parks. I'm a foodie and always love trying new places to eat. I hope other moms find either enlightenment or humor from my posts!Hello, friends. I'm California grown but currently reside in the Dayton, Ohio area. I am a full-time wife, mother, and type one diabetic. I spend my time caring for my little family and trying to live my best life. I am married to an amazing man and we have two beautiful kiddos; Addie (b. Nov 2007) and Russ (b. Nov 2014). Together they make up my whole heart. Between juggling our busy schedules and trying to get healthy I also advocate fiercely for the JDRF. My passions include; reading, writing, traveling, learning new recipes, and making memories with my family. I look forward to sharing my crazy, hectic, mom life with you all.Hi, mamas! I’m Emily, born and raised in Springfield, Ohio, and now raising my family in the Champion City. I’m married to my college sweetheart (he’s from Springfield, too, and we knew each other in high school, but we didn’t make it Facebook official until our freshman year at Ohio State). We’re proud parents of a precious yet oh-so-rotten baby boy, MJ (b. November 2016), and a fur baby named Bentley. Needless to say, I am the queen of our household! I work full-time as a PR pro for a marketing-communication agency and am always striving to find the perfect work-life balance. I’m a Joanna Gaines wannabe, lover of all things rose gold and a self-diagnosed Target addict… I mean c’mon, what mama isn’t?!Content EditorSpringfieldI was born in Cincinnati, but grew up in northwest Ohio. After graduating from Miami University, I worked on websites for the Dayton Daily News and Chicago Tribune. Before starting our family, my husband, Nick, and I moved home from Chicago to the west side of Cincinnati where he grew up. We've been here for 17 years now and have two wonderful boys. I'm currently a freelancer, specializing in web design, editing and content creation. Being a freelancer allows me to run my boys to their various sports, music and academic events, while allowing me to stay in the working world. In my spare time, I love to read, go to Pure Barre classes and travel whenever possible!Hi! I’m Katie, boy mama to 3, wife of a picky eater, photographer, business owner, 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 love exploring local restaurants and shops all around Dayton and you’ll probably see me snapping photos to share on Instagram!
