We're a quirky group, but we all bring unique things to the table and we think we make a pretty great team! We'll be bringing new posts to you regularly, and each contribute something specific. I (Kylie) will be doing most of the writing, Laura Lee does most of our photography, and Jessica is the queen of new ideas and editing perspective. Want to see something specific on the blog?

XO,
