Welcome to Our Story

Mark and I have been together for over two years now so I haven't been in the trenches of step family life for long. I don't claim to be an expert, I'm not a trained professional, just another Mom doing the best she can on this crazy adventure called life. Well when you can't find what you are looking for, build it yourself.  So I decided it would be beneficial to start a platform where all of us newbies can learn together. Research is something I love doing.  About 6 months into this new life I had embarked on, I started googling everything I could about step-family life. Surprisingly enough there wasn't an abundance of information available. Don't get me wrong there are some amazing people out there doing incredible things in terms of helping others and blogging about their experiences, but I think there's definitely room for all kinds of perspectives because step-family life should seriously come with some sort of manual! I won't sit here and tell you I'm creating said manual, or that I have all the answers but what I wanted to create is a space where people can come and read about the trials and tribulations from another Bonus Mom learning the ropes, along side them.

A little about me...I am a Mom of 1, Bonus Mom of 3, Fiancee to this handsome guy! Lover of Music, travel, wine and great food. You can check out my instagram to see what I mean! I am a little Type-A, so the organizational skills are unparalleled! Health and wellness are driving forces behind the decisions I make on a daily basis but lets face it a healthy dose of caffeine to get you through the day can't be bad right!?

Next Steps...

I think the biggest help when you sign up for this life is to connect with others in the same boat. Reach out - I'd love to hear from you!
