Mama of the Month: APRIL

What do we love most about Our Village?


Every month we celebrate a mother who is a part of our village, and share a bit about who she is.

This month we are celebrating our girl, Karissa. She has been with us for a few months and having her has been a ray of sweet sunshine! She has the brightest demeanor, and a "down to earth" personality.

Here's what Karissa had to share with us!

Name & Age: Karissa, 34

Little One's Name & Age: Hannah, 15 1/2 months

What are Some of Your Favorite Things About Being a Mom? I love watching her explore her world and learn new things; it is really fun to watch her turn into a little person! However, my favorite are all the cuddles and love she gives me!

Tell Us a Few Things About Yourself! I am originally from Pittsburgh, PA, and moved to FL about 3 1/2 years ago. Before becoming a SAHM, I got a Master's Degree in Architecture and worked as a home designer. I love painting, art, reading, traveling, and drinking with friends!

I Couldn't Survive Motherhood Without... Technology! Before Motherhood, I swore there would be NO screen time, but reality set in, and you gotta do what you gotta do as the say.

What Gives You Motivation to Workout? My sanity! I am a much better mom and wife when I get to blow off a little steam! I also do it for the energy and body image... I feel much better when I can fit into my clothes!

What's Your Favorite Thing About Living in St. Augustine? Sunshine, beach, and friendliness of everyone here!
