I'm a stay at home in the southwest suburbs of Chicago with three awesome kids.  My days are filled with baby laughter, fort building and storytelling.  Staying home with my kids has been a long term goal for our family and I'm enjoying every possible moment.  My goal is to create a life I don't need a vacation from because this is my paradise!  I'm generally an optimistic, energetic and very patient mom who loves to bring out her inner child.

Our family is also living with a very significant food allergy.  My 2 year old son is the one who is allergic to peanuts but it's certainly an allergy that affects the entire family.  I'm very excited to share our knowledge and personal experience on how this has changed our lives.  My hopes are that, as our story progresses, I can provide knowledge, resources and a bit of excitement about awareness, prevention and someday even a cure for this awful allergy.
