Originating from England, Carly is proud as downhome punch to call Knoxville her home city now. London ain’t got nothing on the colors of an East TN Fall! When she’s not attached to her laptop jotting down whatever random and periodically inspiring thoughts that mosey her way, she’s attached instead to her husband and (almost 2!) kids, all of whom make her life a joy and a hoot day after day. She loves the outdoors, loves a bargain (who doesn’t?) and is thrilled to be a part of the KMB team. Follow more of Carly’s mama musings and adventures at her blog The Blossoming Bump.
