Victoria is a wife and mom of two. Her journey to motherhood was not easy, as their first child, Joshua passed away shortly after birth in 2013. Today they continue to remember him as they raise his little sister, their joyful 3-year old rainbow daughter, Madeline. Victoria and her husband, Patrick, were both born and raised in Kansas City, Missouri and are both die-hard Kansas City Royals fans who love spending time exploring the city with their daughter and finding new and fun things to do around town. Victoria is a full-time working mom, working for the same school district that she graduated from and that Madeline will be attending in two short years (time please slow-down). Victoria has a passion for creating and spends way too much time pinning new crafts, recipes, and party ideas on Pinterest. She blogs over at Life with Madeline - www.lifewithmadeline.com
