  1. I know it’s cliché, but my kids are truly the best gift I’ve ever received. Being a mom to my twin boys is the best!
  2. My nickname in high school was Tash . . . pretty much the longer someone knows me, the fewer syllables my name has!

  13. My favorite book series is Harry Potter! I recently finished reading the series for the first time with my boys!
