Mandie is a freelancing momma to two spunky girls, ages 5 and 2.5. In a former life, she blogged frequently, slept in a lot, and loved to sew and sell on Etsy, but now she sleeps very little, changes a lot of diapers, and only gets to sew when prepping for her next sewing class. She enjoys play dates, grown-up dates with her husband Gabe, and pretending that she has a green thumb. Oh, coffee and great restaurants, too! She's pretty active on Instagram, too, at @mandiesegura.
