5 Things You Didn't Know About Me
- I always have raw almonds at the bottom of my purse.
- I order a cheeseburger for lunch at least twice a week.
- I never pass up an opportunity to go to the bathroom.
- I always take the stairs!
- I am on a quest to make #delish a household term.
I am a Missouri-native, wife, mother of three and lover of soft serve, man shoes and feather boas, I consider myself a creative catalyst that inspires my friends, the CherylStyle staff and our followers to think outside the box and make the most of the everyday. When I'm not concocting new recipes or producing photo shoots, I am channeling my inner-Julia Child with spot-on impressions. I love “testing” cookie recipes on a regular basis so I can eat the dough because I am totally not interested in eating the cookie once it is baked. After hours I can be found snuggling with my three kids, dogs or one of my kids’ many reptiles.
I founded CherylStyle as a way to share my ideas and experiences with other busy moms who want to make their families feel special, yet feel time strapped and over scheduled. I assembled an awesome team and built a brand to create and share tips, original #recipes and #crafts that are aspirational but most importantly, achievable. I'm currently working on a cookbook and developing my own television show.
