Dani Wade

Dani Wade
Dani was born and raised in South Carolina where she met her husband. They married and dove into the Air Force life shortly after, moving to Texas where they have lived for over fourteen years. Dani is a stay at home mom of three wild little boys who constantly keep her on her toes. If the boys don’t have her on the run, the dogs usually do with their mischief. She enjoys reading, watching way too much TV with her husband, and “running away” kidless to pretty much anywhere. You can follow her family’s adventures here at www.troublecomesinthrees.com. **Picture credit to Blakeman’s Photography**
