Hailing from a small town North of Green Bay, Aly met her husband just after high school graduation and they married four years later. One Army deployment, a house purchase, several years, and a pregnancy later, they made the move to Green Bay. Finding they fit in with the small city, family friendly lifestyle, they made Green Bay home. After a few years of working in the health insurance field, baby #2 made an appearance turning Aly into a full time Stay at Home Mom. Aly is passionate about books, buying yarn (and starting projects), playing with her boys, Veterans mental health, and Hallmark movies.
