Meet Your Chicks

Chicks And Salsa evolved out of women sharing stories about life, work, motherhood, and more over chips and salsa on a weekly basis.  What resulted were friendships coated in laughter and loyalty. We live our life confidently because of our life experiences and friendships.  On the blog we share what have learned along the way.
