People who know me know that family and truly authentic friendships are the things I value most in this world, you know besides ice cream. 

So who am I?

 I am a wife and a mother of two.  Josh and I moved here a little more than two years ago with our two kids. My entire backstory is long but you can know this, I lived in South Mississippi for several years as well as Pennsylvania, and I was born and raised in Ohio.  When people ask me where I am from I generally just laugh, because that’s a pretty loaded question.  I am from everywhere I have lived. I don’t define myself by one place I have lived or the place I called home until I left the nest.  It’s interesting to me how most people can say, without certainty, where they are from.  Unless you have lived in the same town or city your entire life I think that is a strange thing to be able to define. 
Alas, I ramble. Back to “who I am”…. As I said, I am a mother. Hudson is six.  He is one of the smartest kids I have ever encountered.  Yes I am little biased, but also he is just like his dad so he has a never ending need to understand things, which mean I look up a lot of random stuff on the internet and in books for him.  He likes space, dinosaurs, and art.  Brooklyn is 3 going on 13. She is every bit of me and I kick myself every single day for it.  She loves sparkly things, makeup, ice cream, candy, and singing.  If you could combine all of those things she would be in her element.

Josh and I got married in 2010 but our relationship had already logged several years prior to that.  We have 2 dogs and several fish in addition to our two human children. 

I don’t have a degree from any university but I pride myself on being one of the more hardworking people of my age (sure I am biased).  I never shy from a task and will learn any skill needed to get the job done.  I have worn many hats in many different positions, but the one I hold now is the one I like best.  I run the Old Town Cape social media accounts, do all of our design work, act as the brand manager for the downtown district, am the general voice for downtown, and am a juggler of many other duties. 

What do I like?  

I like my kids, my husband, my family and my pals.  I enjoy binge watching shows on Netflix when the kids are in bed. I love and am inspired by coffee, carbs, sweets, jewelry, and nature.  I love music of almost all genres and really love singing in the car.  I like reading murder mysteries.  I don’t really read much else.  Occasionally Josh will buy me a book that doesn’t have a death involved in it and I usually don’t read it.

What do I NOT Like?

I do not like people who are rude just for the sake of being rude.  You truly don’t know what someone else is going through, so why be rude?  I don’t like Cheerios, they smell like pee, in my opinion. If you want a more detailed backstory on why I think this, just ask me.  And I don’t like squirrels.  They are just ridiculous. 

What do I love about #DowntownCG?

I have always loved shopping small so it’s a perk that I get to do that all the time.  I love the relationships I have made with the business owners, strolls with my work-mates down Broadway and Spanish, and all the ice cream.  I love sitting by the river when the boats come in and listening to the Dixie-Land Band.  I love the feeling of community.

Because of your many journeys, your dad and myself have seen more of this beautiful country. Dad misses Pennsylvania because we always stopped at JEGS on the way. We miss the charm of Mississippi and the kindness people have there. We are loving all the fabulous parks Cape has to offer. What a great investment. You are in your element Samantha.
