I'm 25 years old. I live with my boyfriend, step-daughter and son (and a fish!). More on them later. I work full-time and am the youngest of three children. I grew up in a small, rural community. Now, I live in the Chicago suburbs. What a change! Boyfriend and I met 2.5 years ago. I work in the finance industry and have for the last few years. I enjoy spending my free time baking and cooking and taking care of my family. The above picture was taken after my first day back at work following a 12 week maternity leave. That day was one of the longest days of my entire life. I couldn't have been happier to be reunited with the littlest love of my life. This is our story.
