- I'm a 30-something New Yorker (Go Giants!!) transplanted to North Carolina by her husband. I'm the mom of two beautiful boys, Braeden Rhys and Gage Leman, and Hudson (named for the river), our barn cat from Wayne County, NY. I knit, sew (especially baby things and easy projects with step-by-step tutorials), bake (from scratch, please), and cook. I've worked in fund raising for 11 years and can't imagine doing anything else but don't feel like I've found my calling.
