Deena Shinn's Mother, Liz
"My mom is the person who showed me the kind of woman I wanted to be, but would think I'm foolish if I told her that. Because even though she's craftier than Martha Stewart, everyone's favorite baker, incredibly smart, unbelievably thoughtful, and even pretty funny (sometimes), the one thing she's terrible at is believing how amazing she truly is. But I will keep telling her, because I know how lucky I am to have had such a wonderful person in my corner, for my very first steps and all of the big and small ones after that."
