Hi Mamas! I’m Elizabeth, Owner/ Founder of Detroit Moms Blog. I have four pretty awesome kids and one amazing husband. My life's chaotic, but I love every minute of it! I am a travel addict, take ridiculous amounts of pictures without ever printing, hosting is my calling and I collect more books than I ever have time to read. I look forward to connecting with you either online or off. See you soon!
