My passions include my children and supporting other women who have children. That’s how this entire thing started!

I wrote my first children’s book when I was a child myself. My first editor, my mom, Della, instilled belief in me that I could be a children’s author one day. The dream laid dormant until I became a mother. With the pen name of Tiffany TuTu, a nickname given by my kindergarten teacher, I decided to write a book on a warm spring day during quarantine, because, why not?

I'm so glad I just did it! When I experienced how much fun my son, Brigden, had when he read my book, I began hoping I could bring joy to other kids and moms. I realized I had this passion inside of me to support other moms in feeling empowered, strong, joyful and supported! That passion paired with God's grace are the reasons why you are reading this right now. How cool?!
 Here's a little more about me. I live in the Midwest with my husband, three children, a cat that doesn’t age, endless dinosaurs, countless babydolls, and a few tutus, of course.
If you swung by my home on any given day, I would probably be holding a glass of tea and wearing no socks or shoes!

I make friends easily so I guarantee we will become really close really soon :) So thrilled you stopped by!


hey friend!

i'm so glad you are here!

I worked in retail pharmacy for 9 years and then transferred to a different pharmacy. For ALL of my pharmacy career, I worked more THAN 40 hours a week because I enjoyed the work so much, but then I had my first child 5 years ago and everything changed. I knew I wanted to spend as much time as possible with my children. I now have two kiddos and work one day a week in the pharmacy. The rest of the time is spent creating content and new book ideas for you and your kiddos :) 

I'm a Pharmacist!

After an evening hot yoga class, I was so sweaty I had to take off my pants once I got to the car and threw them in the back seat. It was dark so I felt safe. On the way home, I was rear-ended. Of COURSE, this would have to happen to me when I didn't have on any pants! I scrambled to find my yoga pants that were drenched with sweat and tried to put them on by the time the driver walked over to my car window. The lesson from all of this is: Yoga pants are your friend, don't take them off!

I once got into a fender bender without any pants on!

Melanie and I hung out for the first time at an ice cream social in second grade. On the way home, Melanie asked me if I wanted to be best friends. I said, "Yes!" and we spent the rest of the drive home memorizing each other's phone numbers (In the 80's you didn't have phones to memorize them for you)! We've been best friends ever since! We don't see each other in person very often, but we talk almost every single day! 

I've had the same best friend
since second grade!

I didn't always use to be this way. I wore socks until I graduated from college, then one day I realized I was all grown up and I didn't HAVE to wear socks if I didn't WANT to wear socks! My feet don't sweat or stink so it isn't really a problem and I can use my sock budget on more shoes! I do keep one pair of socks on hand for when I go through airport security. If I ever give up flying, I will throw those socks away too!

 I only own ONE pair of socks!
