Maggie Mizelle

Maggie was born and raised in the tiny town of Sandpoint, Idaho, but moved east for college and stayed. Her husband is a Virginia native and refuses to leave the Commonwealth, so they reside in NoVA. She is an at-home mother to a son, 5, and a daughter, 2. She is passionate about birth, breastfeeding, house plants, finding things on Craigslist (where she met her husband via missed connections!), and most of all, knitting. A fan of folk music, family, fiber arts. Not a fan of temperatures over 80 degrees, fake plants, the whiny voice of a 2-year-old. Instagram: @maggiemizelle
