Hi, I'm Allison: This is me: a mom who is a little bit crazy. I have four kids, three here with me and one who didn’t make it past 13 weeks gestation. I am a Licensed Practicing Counselor who is passionate about helping women and teen girls, donuts, lattes, and potlucks. Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day. No fancy food for me…I am a burger and fries kind of girl. My husband is super cool. His nick-name is scary Derrick. My favorite activity: sitting next to my man. I just love sitting next to him and hand-holding (he is not too passionate about the handholding). The one thing I would like to do before I die is visit Paris.
