AlisonFort Worth Food Allergy Moms
Alison grew up in San Diego, California and met her husband, Sam, while attending college in Northern California. After a stint in Nashville and a long run in Washington, D. C., they moved to Fort Worth in 2012 with their son, now seven, and added a daughter a couple of years later, now three. In addition to her role as mom, Alison is an attorney and juggles this crazy, beautiful life with the help of a latte (or two) a day, the partnership of her husband, sweet snuggles with her littles, a good workout, and the ever important glass of wine with a friend. Admittedly, this all works better some days than others.
AmeliaArlington + Mansfield
Amelia is THE life of the party. She's loud, but has the weird southern trait of not being able to say "no." She does her hair every day and wears pink lipstick and matching pajamas to bed. Amelia is a balloon artist and can make the Cricut sing like the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. She's got a cross wall that she has collected from her world travels and, really, prefers every surface covered in gold leaf. Amelia's favorite food is Diet Coke and her grandmother's coconut pie. She is often found with a glass of wine that she has run through the blender with fruit and sugar, and she has a flat obsession for Arkansas football and a peculiar interest in Kenny Chesney. Amelia is a school based SLP, a single mom to three spunky kids, and a co-founder to Such Pretty Faces.
