Rori has lived in Farmers Branch her whole life. She works part-time as an editorial consultant at a local college. She loves Target, Starbucks, Netflix, The Happy Planner, writing, reading and sending real mail. And she is trying to accept the fact that she will never catch up with the laundry. You can often find her on Instagram @MadeByRori and @PlansByRori. She met her husband, Zach, in college and they have two living children. Miles (2012) and Aurelia (2015) keep their parents busy and keep their home filled with laughter and shenanigans.
