A Little About Me…
Hey, I’m Stephanie and I’m so glad you came to my blog for a visit! Wife of 7 years, mother of 1 (so far), photographer, health nut and now, a blogger! In my spare time, I go on long walks with my son, while also taking photos of our amazing Colorado landscapes. I enjoy cooking, DIY projects and binge-watching TV shows. 😉 My husband is not home a lot because of his job. When he is home, we love playing outside with our son, barbecuing, and watching movies. I have a big travel and adventure bug, and I hope to pass that along to my son as he grows up.
A Little About This Blog…
One big reason for starting this blog is so I can share how to live a wholesome and fun life as an individual and as a mom in our crazy world. My other reason is wanting to start my own business and successfully work from home while raising my son.
The big “push” that happened for me into starting this blog was when my husband decided to find a new job. This was very recently (about 1 month ago) that he decided to switch jobs so he could be somewhere that had a pathway to being your own boss. At that same time, we were struggling with money. Bills, tax time, food are always a necessity but we are so tired of living paycheck to paycheck and barely having wiggle room. So, hubby took the new job, meaning he was only going to be only 1-2 days per week. We both don’t like that being the plan in the long run, and I FINALLY said: “It’s time to start a blog!”
In the past, whenever we have had financial hardships I have looked at starting a blog because they can be a great way to make extra income or a living. But I never wanted to put in the time and effort, AND I was terrified of failure. Truthfully, I still am but I KNOW I can make this happen and be successful with it.
I came up with the name “A Cup of Stephanie” so I could convey the different joys, things and experiences in my life. You’ll find a bit of everything here. Originally, this blog was in the lifestyle niche because I wanted to write about EVERYTHING. However, having watching many training videos and reading other bloggers’ advice, I have committed myself to writing about healthy living. My focus will be to bring my fellow mommies and women a better understand of what it is to eat clean, exercise and use natural/holistic remedies in their lives.
I will always strive to base my posts on my own experiences and research. Many of my posts are based on what I do or practice in my life as a work-at-home-mom, and if I haven’t experienced something, then it is RESEARCH TIME.
It is so exciting to see my blog come to life, and I love daydreaming about where it is going to be in the future.
