It’s that time of year, we get to welcome spring with cute dresses and little sweater vests! The kids are bouncing off the walls – like bunnies! – and are ready to get out of the house. What a perfect way to kick off the season with egg hunts and Easter celebrations!

Alexa is a Midwestern girl at heart. After dragging her husband across the country to live on the beach in South Carolina, she realized there is no place like “home." Shortly after becoming engaged, the couple moved back to WI to “settle down” surrounded by family. Alexa is somewhat of an adrenaline junkie. Before becoming a mom, she could be found skydiving, cruising around on a motorcycle, or practicing her aim at the shooting range. As a stay-at-home Mom, her days now revolve around cuddles, play time, diaper changes, feedings, walks, and sneaking in some Netflix during nap time.
