Courtney was born and raised in Louisiana where she met her husband (of 13 years). Since then they have moved several times, but finally feel very settled in NW DC after moving back a little over two years ago. She has three energetic kids: Cormac (2010), Evangeline (2013), and Solomon (2016), and a new baby Antoinette (2019). She thinks motherhood is absolutely wonderful, but she is constantly challenged and stretched in ways she couldn't have imagined. She spends her days talking legos, playing dress-up, and chasing her toddler. We all know motherhood is challenging so she wanted to band together with other mothers to start this site to inspire, learn, and grow together. She loves morning coffee, chocolate, chatting with people since she's an extrovert, a clean house (which is rare these days), and finding good deals. She dislikes when her kids don't listen the first time, she abhors littering and doesn't enjoy clothes shopping.
