Annie moved to Richmond in 2015 with her husband Robbie and their two young children, and they've since added a third to their brood. Annie grew up on a farm and thought she could never live outside the Blue Ridge Mountains, but she has grown to love her new city, and enjoys exploring it via foot, pedal, and minivan. She has a rich knowledge of the local doughnut culture, and enjoys reading, crossword puzzles, cooking, dance parties, and long walks without having to push a stroller. She majored in English and History at the University of Virginia, and is excited to get back into writing while connecting with this wonderful community of Richmond moms. You can also find her writing at Mothering Beyond Expectations.
