About Kelly Acs

Kelly Acs (rhymes with hatch), spent her early years in San Diego, stuffing her face with rolled tacos, surfing, and pretending that she would never have to pay off her student loan debt. She met her Hungarian prince charming at a gothic bar, where she witnessed him do a super sweet (totally sober) somersault on the dance floor. She now spends her days in France eating macarons, taking photos for local families, and annoying French people with her questionable language skills. She is obsessed with spreading love, audiobooks, photography, introspection, and mastering lazy parenting techniques.
