Bridget Black lives in Royal Oak. She has two kids – Bodie (1.5) and Maddie (4.5). Maddie is the coolest and kindest big sister, with craft skills for days. Bodie is all boy, and easy going. Their family is complete with her super supportive, (and good looking) husband, Jason. Her family moved to Michigan in the winter of 2016 from Colorado. Being away from all family and mama friends, Bridget's transition was slow, but the crew is adapting and loving life in The Mitten. She’s a working mom turned stay-at-home, and in her free time she loves to drink champagne (most days after 5 pm), find new places to dine, and be outside in the sunshine. Bridget’s looking forward to growing her tribe in the Detroit area and helping other mamas who are making the tough transition to a new city.
