Mom Spotlight – Victoria
Welcome back to The Mom Spotlight everyone! Settle in and get to know another great mom from the blogosphere. We may be on opposite sides of the country..we may be next door neighbors…We may believe differently, vote differently, parent differently….BUT, we can all learn from each other. Each and every mom has something she can contribute and share….tips, recipes, ideas…I love catching glimpses into the lives of other families, and taking away one or two ideas to try out in my own home….and, in the process, we become more connected to each other.
Today’s mom taking a turn in the spotlight is Victoria, owner and founder of ABC Creative Learning Inc. (They have some AWESOME toys!) You can also find her on her blog! Check her out and show her some love! Lots of great things can be found on her site!!
Let me know if YOU would like to step into the spotlight! This weekly feature will be getting a facelift in a few weeks…new questions..slightly different format…should be good! Okay..ready to meet a new friend? Here we go!
