Megan is originally from Michigan, and still misses the snow and cold weather of the Midwest but loves the charm and family friendliness of Charleston. She has lived in Charleston for a little over five years with her husband, Caleb, two children, Alice and Atticus, and their rescue husky, Zoey. They can usually be found downtown exploring all of its nooks and crannies or at the beach any time of year. Megan writes about her day-to-day adventures, and challenges of motherhood on her blog, The Mom in Progress.
