  • Abbie

    Hi, I’m Abbie, super mom, and busy-bee who moved to Plano from London, England with my husband and 2 kids, Jesse and Lucy, in the Summer of 2013. Plano Moms was my lifeline when I arrived as I didn’t know anyone or anything about my new city that I now called home. When I’m not being a Plano Mom or being a taxi service to my kids, working out, cooking and reading (when I find the time!)
