Get to Know Our Co-founders! Megan and Vicky

What an amazing week this has been! We are just so excited about all the positive feedback we have received, and are even more motivated to make Jacksonville Moms Blog a success.

Monday begins the official start of our blog. Our goal from the beginning has been to connect local Moms with each other and with valuable resources around town. We’ve already seen some great connections being made this week and that certainly validates all the hard work our team has put in.

Here are some of the things that Jacksonville Moms Blog wants to accomplish:

  • Mommy-to-Mommy connections! Jacksonville is HUGE and we want to bring all Moms together in a fun, useful online community.
  • Learn how to SHARE! How many of us have already said that to our children today?!? But seriously, we want to share what we know, learn what you know and spread the word about amazing finds in and around Jacksonville.
  • Mom perks! Offer Moms and families great deals on amazing products and services. JMB readers will reap the rewards offered by our local partners!
  • Give Mom a break! JMB wants to organize some amazing evening events for our readers. Moms Night Out!

We hope you enjoy your time on our site and we especially hope you learn some valuable information, get some good mommy advice and connect within your local community.

If you’ve been following our contributor spotlights (and we hope you have!), here is some fun information about us. We are thrilled to be the founders of this site and welcome your thoughts and feedback!  Enjoy!

Megan Kilis

Mom to feisty, curly-haired charmer Kingsley.

A few of my favorite things: FOOD- I love to eat! Facials (although I never get them anymore), living room performances by Kingsley, Bravo, date nights, comfy dresses, cowboy boots, fall when pumpkin arrives- pumpkin squash, pumpkin lattes, pumpkin doughnuts and pumpkin bread (but I hate pumpkin pie!) and vintage Lilly Pulitzer.

Best kept secret in Jacksonville: The French Pantry

My best mommy talent is surviving a year of sleeping an average of 3 hours a night.

Vicky Lane

Vicky Lane

Mom to energetic “I don’t take naps anymore” Brendan (almost 3) and sweet “I must be held at all times” Audrey (3 months).

A few of my favorite things: Making my husband laugh, when Brendan says “Mommy I love you” and sweet Audrey says “ahh-goo,” eating and food in general, Halloween, new restaurants, big cities, beach towns, headbutts from my cats, new running shoes,, Top Chef, Survivor, The Bachelor, and family walks on the beach at dusk.

Best kept secret in Jacksonville: The chef’s table at Medures and the salted dark chocolate chip cookie at Lillie’s coffee shop.

My best Mommy talent is typing one-handed while holding baby, training sweet Audrey to be asleep by 8:30, giving us two on one when attempting to put Brendan to bed.
