Ariel is a busy mother of two, lifestyle blogger and freelance writer. She’s always had a hidden passion for writing, but recently she decided to pull up her big girl panties and set it free into the world. Ariel lives in Edmond, Oklahoma with her husband, daughter, son and dog. OCD should be her middle name because she loves making lists and planning ahead; with her, a simple backyard barbecue is never simple, it’s a production. In December 2014, after two long years of foster placement, Ariel and her husband adopted their two children. This is her story of changing from a 40+ hours a week workaholic to a reluctant stay-at-home mom.
