Andrea Lahouze

Andrea Lahouze writes and edits health, home, pets, and kids & family content for Mpls.St.Paul Magazine and creates branded content and advertising features for Studio MSP. She is editor of the award-winning kids & family blog and e-newsletter The Fam, highly anticipated by its 3,500 (grand)parent readers. A Minnesota native, wife, and mother of two, she is also adept at finding ways to let the kids splatter paint, food, and glitter on walls that are not hers. Andrea can be found chasing after her daughter at the Minnesota Zoo while babywearing her other daughter, gallivanting with toddlers around the Minneapolis Institute of Art, walking her two basset hounds, skipping rocks in Grand Marais, rocking family pajama dance parties in her living room, and in rare moments of solitude, savoring a chai tea latte.
