A very special thank you to The Valley Breeze Newspaper Group and writer Ethan Shorey for their fantastic feature story on “RI Loves: The ABC’s of Rhode Island on January 21!
“RI Loves: Showing Love for the Ocean State from A to Z” is an alphabet book for preschoolers “highlighting all that makes this state great,” says Austin, from Rocky Point to Nibbles Woodaway (the Big Blue Bug).
Austin grew up in Smithfield and now lives in North Providence with 3-year-old Gwen and her husband Patrick. A 2001 graduate of the University of Rhode Island, with a degree in communications and an English minor, she is expecting another girl in March.
The Valley Breeze Newspaper has been something I’ve read for a very long time, and now being a resident of North Providence, it was very exciting to see my husband, daughter and myself included in their coverage. – Jill
