I'm so happy you're here! I'm not a professional writer, but I find it cathartic and hope my experiences can help others. Posts focus on parenting, stepparenting, growth, finding hope in the dark times and of course, wine.

Meet the face
behind the posts

Nice to meet you! My name is Stephanie. On the surface, I'm a suburban mom of two (one came out of my body (toddler) and one I inherited (teen)). But like most moms, there's so much more to my story.


I'm in my early 40s. Now you might think, she doesn't have that much life experience - but I've experienced highs and lows, joy and pain, success and trauma. We're all just trying to live our best lives, and every day for me is a work in progress.

I'm here to share and connect. Born and raised in Santa Clarita, CA, I was happy to leave "forever" when I ventured off to college. But life had different plans for me. My amazing husband brought me back to "awesome town" and now I'm here raising a family of my own.

I'm a mom, stepmom, wife, daughter, sister, friend, marketing professional and nonprofit youth baseball board member, trying to succeed in all of those roles. It's not easy, but it's life - and it's so worth it.
