The WOMAN: Keyonda Pyles is a 30 something mom, wife, blogger, self-proclaimed socialite, advocate for literacy, and vision consultant. As a published Freelance Journalist, her love for writing produced early. After college Keyonda started sharing her daily life of being a mom and a wife online and began getting questions about where was the coolest place for a family outing to even where she shops for shoes! Realizing that she was an influencer Keyonda birthed an online forum. Arealurbanmom.com was created to answer all of those questions while sharing her life with the world.
The Family is based out of Chicago, IL. Keyonda married her High School Sweetheart Dennis and they have two amazing boys together. Dennis and Keyonda enjoy pushing their date night adventures to the max and even go on #baecations to keep the flame going in their marriage. Spending quality family time together is a priority and The Pyles’ make sure to explore with their kids no matter if it’s an educational venue or at an amusement park as long as they are together. Dereon the oldest (turning 10) of the duo is into technology, movies, and the latest dance moves. He wants to be a lawyer and has already planned to attend Harvard. Chance (soon to be 2 ) is the newest addition to the family. He’s a huge Mickey Mouse fan and is extremely active, but he does enjoy taking a break from calling shots to eat his food and whoever else’s food that is in his reach.
