Take a glimpse through Kelly's Instagram feed and you'll immediately know that this mom couldn't be more in love with her two boys, Winston and Ezra. From co-sleeping with her 8-month-old Ezra, to making sure that her 3-year-old gets his "big boy" alone time, Kelly shares the triumphs and challenges of motherhood. As she gears up to launch her professional photography website, we asked Kelly to share how her hometown of Findlay, a small town in northwestern Ohio, influences her parenting style.
1. Describe yourself in 10 words.
I am a restless multitasker who can't sit still.
2. What do you love about the city you call home?
We are very family-oriented. Both of our parents live close, and having them near has been a huge benefit to us and our children.
3. How does the city affect the way you parent?
Being limited on kid-friendly activities, oftentimes we have to think outside the box—like maybe chalk-painting our faces.
4. What's your favorite staycation destination?
We love taking our children to the many parks that are in our area. They are safe with a lot of green space, and always wear the boys out!
5. Share one secret place that makes your hometown special.
My in-laws own a local coffee shop (Coffee Amici) that we frequent. It is a great little place, with a welcoming feeling as soon as you walk in. We can't get enough of it.
