Whitney is rediscovering Nashville with a toddler and baby after spending a few post-college years (Go Blue Raiders!) exploring other cities in the South with her high school sweetheart turned husband. She is a stay-at-home-mom to two boys, and no, she is not trying for a girl. Sometimes she puts her former marketing career skills to good use by designing kid-centric decor on Etsy. When the kids are napping, she enjoys cooking, reading, and rearranging the playroom for the 87th time.

Me Too — On Sexual Harassment and Assault

"Me too." Two little words with a powerful punch. Two words that state unapologetically and without question: I, too, am a woman who has been sexually harassed or assaulted. Alyssa Milano started the viral campaign with...

I have a million reasons to not host a play date. My house is never (legit NEVER) immaculate. I am weird about the foods my kids eat. My first inclination is strong introversion. And...
