Inspirational Parents #4

My first Inspirational Parents post a few weeks ago started off the series with a fabulous blogger. It was so popular that I thought it was time I brought you another inspirational parent blogger.

Amy manages to balance parenting two teenagers and a toddler with running her highly successful blog, working as a freelance writer and being incredibly glamorous whenever a camera is around. So with…
