Aubrey is a mid(ish) 30's gal, born and raised in Atlanta, but has affectionately called Charleston home for the last 10 years. She spent a good many years traveling the states and abroad after college while all of her friends were settling down and starting families. Once she settled here, she met her husband of five years through a series of random circumstances and friends- however, don't be surprised if he tells you it was MySpace! Ha!! They have three fur babies and just recently welcomed "the twirls" (twin girls) after years of struggles, through a combination of faith, science, and lots of love (and needles, and appointments, and amazing docs,etc..). She is an advocate for the infertility community and being real through the process of it and now mommahood. You can most often find her working out (or dressed like she did), drinking lukewarm coffee, or at a local brewery- yes, with her hubs and twirls in tow! She chronicles her escapades at For the Love of Mom Genes on Instagram and Facebook, and is revamping her blog so stay tuned for that.
