After fulfilling a childhood dream of one day living in a high-rise building in a big city (eight years in L.A. and 10 in Manhattan), Mary Beth is now partially fulfilling another childhood dream. As a kid, she envisioned her four gorgeous children running through the idyllic countryside while she created pottery in her studio. Well, fast forward 30 years and there is no pottery studio and only two kids but she has the idyllic countryside part down. After studying business and art, and then working in corporate marketing, graphic design as well as event planning and development, Mary Beth is now happily blogging. Always thrilled to find a great family-friendly event to share, being the editor of CT Mommy Poppins is right up her alley.
