Thank you for visiting my blog! My name is Colleen Mallory. I grew up in Ohio, and our family moved to Charlotte, North Carolina about four years ago to get away from the cold weather. My husband and I run a business together, and I have been blogging on that site for years. Recently, I decided to expand our blog topics to include some more personal stuff. I am a teacher at heart. Brian and I have three boys, Addison, Riley, and Logan. Addison is a 24 year old artist, aquarist, and daddy to Lucy. Riley is 19, off to college soon, and quite the movie aficionado. Logan is 14, a rock climber, and loves to act. Luscinia Arlandria (Lucy) is our beautiful and amazing granddaughter.
