About Maven:

I love books, babies, and baking. I've also been known to dabble in chemistry and playing the organ. Someday I plan on being one of those semi-famous mommy bloggers who specializes in cooking/baking/photography/digital editing/parenting (/sarcasm). Email me at maven(at)theboard(dot)byu(dot)edu!
