Naomi Alvarado
Naomi moved to the area in 2009 years ago from Jackson, MS after graduating from the University of Southern Mississippi with a degree in Fashion Merchandising. She immediately fell in love with the area and the local community. She met her husband Chris in 2010 and they got married in 2011. Their son Hayden was born in 2012, and it has been nonstop crazy-train ever since. Naomi began writing her blog Preschool & Prosecco in 2015 to chronicle life as a mom and all the lessons she has been learning through parenting a special needs child, along with delicious recipes and easy crafts. She is a stay-at-home-mom and the booking manager for her husband. In her free time, Naomi loves all things music, friends, food, wine, coffee, 30A, and Andy Cohen. You can follow Naomi on her blog, on Instagram, and Facebook
