Lori Orlinsky

Lori Orlinsky is a wife and mommy of two little ladies who are obsessed with the girliest things life has to offer. As a result, Lori's day frequently starts and ends with dress-up parties, trips to the American Girl store and DIY spa treatments alongside her daughters, Hayley and Ellie. While her days are often messy, complicated and exhausting and she can never find the secret to peeing alone, they're also filled with laughter, joy and priceless family memories. Lori is part of the Chicago Parent Blogger Network and is also a children's book author.
