I’m Leslie Kvasnicka (ka-vas-ni-cka). I’m a born and raised Texas girl about to celebrate 10 years of marriage to my love Justin. Before kids, I worked as a pediatric nurse, and now I'm spending my days caring for just three kiddos...two brave and fun-loving boys, Logan (7) and Colt (2) with a feisty sister, Reese (4) in the middle. My list of favorites is a mile long, including cooking new recipes, group fitness classes, vacations with friends, creative projects, creamy coffee, the enneagram, patios covered in twinkle lights and texting in gifs. Hilarious memes are my love language. Follow along with my blog www.kvaschaos.com
