I'm Mrs. Arica Schmied. My husband and I are high school sweethearts. We have been together for 9 years and have been married for 4 of those years. Now we have a daughter that brings us endless "joy" and happiness. Ava Joy is the reason I was born. I am a labor and delivery nurse but my most meaningful accomplishment is being a mommy! I love to travel, read, run, drink wine / coffee, and go to the beach!! My greatest hope is to raise a sweet and compassionate daughter who loves to live life to the fullest.
