Emily, with Grant and Callie
Hi! I'm Emily, wife to Luke and mommy to baby Grant (and furry, four-legged Callie). Although on the later side of my 30s (but just barely!), I'm a newly minted mom and I couldn't have asked for a better parenting teacher than my curious and always-on-the-go son. When Grant was born last year, I traded in my professional hat, which included many years of marketing/communications/graphic design in the art museum world, to stay home with him. I've learned so much in the first 10 months of his life that I often tell people 'this IS my first rodeo' because he keeps me on my toes. I love cooking, crafting, and generally being creative. When the weather is nice, you will find our whole family outdoors. We love exploring our community and beyond. I'm excited for the opportunity to contribute to Mommy's Block Party as I navigate the waters of toddlerdom!
Look for some posts from Emily, soon! Welcome to the MBP family, Emily!
