The Gallery Exhibit will be open to the public. Friends and families are always encouraged to attend.

Hi, I’m Miranda and I’m so excited to bring Dayton Moms Blog to our awesome city! Fifteen years ago I ventured to Wright State where I earned my marketing degree. Since then, I have been happy to call this area home. I’m a proud wife to my husband Ryan, who inspires me to always be better tomorrow than I was today. With his support, I am thrilled to start this wonderful resource for Dayton moms. This will be an exciting addition to my full time career & our five energetic girls! Yep, you read that correctly. Five girls. We have an amazing blended family and we live in a world of organized chaos. Organization out of necessity and Chaos because, well, we are out numbered!! Our daughters are eight, seven, six times two ( twins. yes. Identical! ) and our baby. Brooklyn, Ella, Addison, Payton, & Charlie, respectively. I’m known for my contagious optimism and easy going nature. The little things that make me happy are Panera iced tea & their drive thru. Seeing the sheer excitement of our oldest daughters when Charlie does something cute or new, and a great piece of dark chocolate. Finding an inspiring quote that hits home always makes me smile. I’m so happy you are here checking out the newest resource for Dayton Moms. It is my mission to make it your happy-place, your go-to, your one-stop-shop, your home for all things Dayton, all things mom. :: My favorite things about being a mom :: Knowing I have the power to change the world for the better & No one will ever question my caffeine (or wine) intake...reminder, I have five girls!
