I’ve been a member of Collective Bias for a few years, but this is the first year I’ve participated in the virtual holiday gift exchange, and I’m so glad that I did! Why? Because it gave me a chance to “meet”  Jamie Rippy.

Jamie and I have a lot in common, though she’s much younger and much better looking (check out her adorable family here). She’s a North Carolina native who’s married with two kids. She loves to cook, care her family, and attend to her two toy poodles while she works, blogs, and enjoys being a mom.

I knew I’d like her the moment I read her Pinterest profile, “The totally stressed out, in-over-her-head, professional nothing who’s cooking, taking pictures and blabbing about her kids over at” I love someone who can poke fun at herself and looks at life’s lighter side.

Want to catch up with Jamie the self-titled Head Mama, Owner, Editor, and Writer in just one post? Check out her “Top 10 Posts of 2013.” What made her list?
