City you live in: Queen Creek

A typical day in my life includes…

driving kids to school, fulfilling orders, cursing at my computer, coming up with new ideas with the girls, more driving, some sort of game and dinner with my family and then trying to make it up to at least until 9:00 so I don’t feel like a total loser.

I was born…

in Michigan, stayed 40 years until my body fully rejected the cold and my husband fully rejected my complaints about the cold.

My favorite thing about Arizona…

the weather! But the sunsets are a close second. I make the kids look at them every night.

I’m listening to…

Billie Eilish because I’m not like a regular mom, I’m a cool mom.

My family…

is pretty cool. No seriously, I am amazed that I had anything to do with raising these cool little people and my husband is pretty cool because he supports all of my ideas. I have a lot of ideas. Ok, maybe he doesn’t support them ALL.

If I could have dinner with anyone, it would be…

Ellen DeGeneres.  Ellen, if you’re reading this, call me.

One thing I cannot live without…

seriously, one thing? Phone. I mean family!

When I was younger, I wanted to be…

a teacher until I realized that not all children were as perfect as me. 

I’m inspired by…

people that go after their dreams.

The one person who motivates me is…

again, only one?? Fine. My husband. 

If I could change anything in the world, it would be…

this is hard.  There is a lot I want to change. I wish people could just be more peaceful. Wait, did I just ask for world peace? Well, now I sound like a pageant contestant.

The perfect day would be…

waking up in a beach house, drinking coffee while listening to the waves and then my lunch with Ellen.  And then Ellen and I would go karaoke. Then my husband and I would have dinner on the beach and my kids would be quietly playing in the sand. 

My first job was…

at a clothing store called Merry Go Round. I used to get in trouble by my manager because I was too honest with people. I used to tell them they shouldn’t buy certain things. But joke was on my manager because I still sold a ton and we worked on commission!

My favorite escape…

a good book!

My life…

is better than I expected and I expected a lot. But I have a thankful mindset so I am thankful for a lot of things that many people would over look. This makes you a happier person.

I’m currently working on…

building my business. There is so much to know and educate myself on.

Always…

find the humor in situations; life is too short to take yourself too seriously. I love to laugh and I love being around people that make me laugh.

Never…

chase people. The right ones won’t make you chase them.

Favorite Quote…

“What if I fall?  Oh, but my darling, what if you fly?”  Erin Hanson

Biggest Dream…

to eventually mentor girls to be business owners.  As soon as I figure it all out…stay tunedJ

My Pet Peeve(s)…

arrogance and ungratefulness. 

More about Valerie…

I started Mila Marie Bags last year with my two daughters, Milla and Claudia Marie.  It’s a line of handbags that you can design yourself and then change up depending on your mood or your outfit.  We have backpacks, everyday bags, beach bags and evening bags.  The straps are interchangeable and there are also interchangeable accessories for the front.
