We once heard a little quote that said "Teamwork makes the dream work." It's cheesy, but also true. If you've ever wondered who's behind the Milk and Honey curtain, wonder no longer. Meet our team!

What do you do with the rest of your time? I'm a mom to three busy boys, ages 10, 8, and 5, so I spend a lot of time driving to and from various activities and cheering in the stands at various sporting events. My husband, Josh, and I have been married for 15 years and we equally love to travel and to catch up on our many favorite TV shows. I love food, fitness, and fashion so most of my "me time" is spent on one of those things in one way or another.

What candy do you steal from your kids' trick-or-treat bag? Butterfinger, Krackle, Mr. Goodbar, Snickers, 3 Musketeers, Milky Way...The better question would be: "Which mini candy bars do you NOT steal from the treat bag?" I do this because they owe me for all the everything I do for them, including, but not limited to, taking them trick or treating. It's not stealing because I've earned it. :)
