Meet Lee Ann, Our Portland Moms Blog Owner
Kids :: I have three boys (Mateo – 10, Zane – 6, Kyle – 4) and a daughter (Daphne – 1.5)
Day In 5 Words :: Hugs. Hustle. Focus. Love. Repeat.
Major Life Influence :: Without a doubt, my own parents have had the greatest impact on me. They are kind, giving, and patient, and I feel lucky to have been raised by them.
Go-To Mom Hack :: Google Calendar is my life. I have several different calendars, each one is color-coded, and everything goes in the calendar, always. And I share different calendars to important stakeholders (husband, parents, sister) to simplify planning. I also use an app called Tiny Calendar which displays all my calendars and those I sync with in custom views. Essential!!
Biggest Guilty Pleasure :: International soccer. It’s going to be trouble when the World Cup kicks into high gear!
Favorite Vacation Spot :: Barcelona!
