In the coming months we would like to take you behind the scenes at Family Friendly Cincinnati and introduce you to the fabulous ladies who write for this blog. Over the years we have all shared with you some of our favorite things to do and see around town. Now we want to take a moment with a little Q&A to let you get to know us each a little more!
The faces behind Family Friendly Cincinnati: Michelle H.
About Me: I used to work full time in the corporate world. After having my first child I knew I wanted to stay at home. It took 3 years for it to happen, but now, 5 years and 2 kids later, I am a stay at home mom to 3 kids with more responsibilities than I could have ever imagined. I love volunteering with school and church. I started a garden this year and am in love with it. Each year I’ve tried to expand my horizons a little more and this year I’ve finally started writing.Where you can find me on the web: I’m Living the Good Life and Stuff By Michelle
This business/organization is important to our family: The library–any branch. Reading is important for both children and adults. Our entire family enjoys reading and participating in the many programs offered by the library.How I spend my “Mama” time (when I can find the time): In the evening, by myself at Reality Tuesday Cafe with a book and a chai tea. In the early, early morning before school starts I love to work out at the gym with a friend–and then stop by Reality Tuesday on the way home!Favorite place to shop with (or for) the kids: Let’s be honest, there is no place I like to shop WITH the kids! But, FOR the kids, I love to hit the thrift store, GAP Outlet or a yardsale. I love getting a good deal. I hate paying full price for something that will only be worn one season. I found my daughter’s Easter dress at the Gap Outlet for $4.When I’m not blogging you’ll find me: Helping with homework, making dinner, reading a book, volunteering with church, school or scouts.A local non-profit that is close to my heart: Keegan’s Spirit Foundation – A family from our church had twin boys. One had many, many heart problems. This foundation was started to honor his memory and spirit, as well as help other young people who have heart problems pursue an education.
My favorite blogs to read: The Bearded Iris, stark.raving.mad.mommy , Jennsylvania . To stay sane, I need to read something funny. These do it for me! I have also recently become a Pinterest addict!
