I’m a career mom whose life was turned upside down with the arrival of our sweetest blessing in 2015. Married to the love of my life & residing in Jacksboro, Tennessee where we were born & raised. Topics of interest include: all things Jesus, reading, Christmas, fall, Harry Potter, the zoo, fountain Coke, and Disney movies. If you like any or all of those things, we can get along. I write about my wins and my woes with motherhood and my family on my blog You, Me, & Harper Capri.
