Meet Krystal Hurst
Dallas Moms Blog Owner
From a fourth grade teaching career in Richardson to managing a letterpress studio in the Design District of Dallas, Krystal finally found her calling with the not-so-simple life of motherhood. But motherhood can be lonely!
It was only through an open call for contributors that she stumbled upon Dallas Moms Blog in 2012 and found the sense of community she’d been looking for. Since then, her role has grown from volunteer contributor to Managing Editor and now, Owner.
Krystal has a passion for Dallas; a city she’s lived in her whole life, and wants to continue the tradition that was started with Dallas Moms Blog–building a community and uniting the moms who live here.
She’s been married for her best friend and husband, Tim, of almost 14 years and enjoys spending time with her boys, Mark (2011), Zachary (2013), Nathan (2015), and baby boy #4 due Summer 2018. Her passions are eating cheaply, traveling often, and photographing every minute of it!
Dallas Moms Blog was founded as the first Sister Site of City Moms Blog Network in April 2011 by local moms, Lauren Kimmel & Casey Gilliam. The site was sold to Krystal Hurst in 2012, but we thank these women for being a part of DMB’s history!
