my story

Hi guys! Happy first blog post!

Welcome to my blog! I am Steph. I have always dreamed about having a blog one day! And I am so excited that today is the day. So many changes are happening these next couple of months. I look forward to this next chapter of my life + sharing it with you all! So thank you for being here!

So how did this all start?

We are a Military family. Having to move away from our biggest support system is already tough. But being far away from them when I was pregnant, + now while raising 2 babies is even more challenging.

When I was first pregnant with Kenny , I had no idea what to expect. During my 2nd trimester, I found out I had Cholestasis. ( I will go more in depth on this topic on a separate post soon). I never heard of this condition before and wanted to seek advice from other people who had gone through the same thing that I was experiencing. I started connecting with other mamas online + flash forward to today, I have formed many wonderful connections with other bloggers, mamas + influencers! This community is truly amazing!

Being a mama, I needed an outlet that was more than just my journal. I enjoy taking photos. So I started documenting my photos on instagram + being open about my motherhood journey. I soon realized that I had found my niche + everything just picked up from there! I enjoy being real + sharing the ins + outs of motherhood. I love being a mama + everything it entails. I want to be able to share my word with you. Whether you are a mama, a mama to be, a wife or a partner. Whoever you are. I want to be able to share my life + my experiences with you, connect with you + impact your life in some way!

Besides just sharing my motherhood journey on this platform, I plan on using this space to talk about other topics as well such as marriage, Military life, sharing recipes + so much more! Also if you have suggestions on other topics that you would like me to blog about, please let me know! Don't be a stranger! If you want to reach out to me, don't hesitate! I'm excited to connect with you!

Thanks so much for taking your time to read this post to get to know me!
