Samantha Schultz is an almost 30-something Loyola University Chicago law school graduate who started blogging over five years ago. Having a family shifted her life perspective. She is now a part-time paralegal at a nearby law office so that she can be home with her boys (Charlie, 3 and Jack, 1) most of the time. Her blog, The Peanuts Gang, documents her life at home with her sons.
