About Amber Baxter
It all started with the birth of my first child. Me and my husband were over the moon but had a million questions! Our oldest is now 11 and we have added 2 more! After 15 years of marriage and 3 kids…. I have learned a lot. Being apart of mommy groups online and in my hometown have helped me navigate this, sometimes messy job, of parenting. I started volunteering within our school district as soon as my oldest entered Kindergarten… I quickly realized, as prepared as I thought I was, there were things I had no idea my kids would face in school. I became a regular fixture at my kids school. Parents would come to me for help with resolving a wide variety of parenting issues and I realized how good it felt to help out other moms. I wanted to do more! My love for blogging and writing about parenting was born! I was born and raised in the great state of California, a Los Altos native. I love connecting with other moms and sharing experiences. Before I was a mom I was a women with goals and dreams. I still have them and pursue them. I love helping other moms to see that they can too! Being a mom is a life long title so I will keep writing about my adventures in parenting until I am chasing around my grandkids!

About Amanda Walton
Hello. My name is Amanda Walton and I am a mom to four amazing children. My children are Andrew (7/2003), Althea (7/2008), Huxley (10/2009), and Adeline (12/2011). I love being able to stay home with them while I pursue my passion for writing. I hope to raise my children to be realistic individuals who are unique and passionate about the things that they enjoy most in life. I also hope that they are environmentally conscious and that they have a deep respect for others and their feelings. I am married to a great man who is the yin to my yang, Shane. We compliment each other and I am always happy to spend quality time with him. I have spent over the last ten years writing and blogging my way through different positions. Currently I run the blog Simply Shawn N Jenn and am editor of Real Family Travel Magazine. I also have a number of re-occurring articles with different publications and have ebooks published on Amazon. Among my many interests are a love for travel and visiting new places. I love being able to take our children on adventures. Fortunately thanks to our work schedules we are able to do a lot as a family as well. I also love reading, listening to music and am passionate about writing. I am a huge fan of jam bands like Phish, the Grateful Dead, Mike Gordon, Les Claypool, and more! I have always been fascinated with the history and culture of the San Francisco area. On more times than I can count someone that I have met has asked where I was from. When I tell them that I am from rural Illinois they tend to be shocked and tell me that they were expecting me to say some place like San Francisco. My husband and I hope to be able to relocate to the Bay area one day sooner rather than later.

About Lorin Sayres
I am a wife to Derek and mother to Gavin (6) and Liv (4). I began blogging in 2013 after the loss of my own mother, as means to cope. After all the blogging and coping, I realized what I really wanted to do was just be a mother, that’s when I left the corporate world and settled into back into my roots. Now, I am adjusting to life at home, proving to sometimes be quite interesting, I currently dabble in the art of Elsa and Anna conversations, buffing hardwood floors, and towel folding. I enjoy writing, gardening, jogging, crafts, sewing, reading, baking and cooking, and my guilty pleasures such as some TV shows I watch when my kiddos are in bed. I really love to travel with my husband and children; this is a skill that we have become pros at. We are currently planning our first trip to Disney by surprising our children for Christmas. Among our favorite places to visit are Texas, Arkansas, and California, especially the San Francisco Area. Who does not picture Robin Williams on a Trolley as a woman and not get a warm feeling about San Francisco? You can read more about me on my website, Life I Liv.

About Shannon Johnson
I am a stay at home mom of two little girls Ainsley (2 1/2) and Ava (16 months). They are fifteen months apart and keep me very busy! I am also a fitness coach for moms who are needing to figure out how to take care of themselves again with exercise, nutrition and other self-care practices. Before having kids I taught Kindergarten for eight years. We also traveled a lot before having children and San Francisco was one of our favorite places to visit. I love children, my time at home with my family, writing and helping women be the best versions of themselves so they can be the best for their families.
