ABOUT US

Hi! I’m Arieal….

Welcome to my motherhood journey

My Journey began with the birth of our first son, Travis in 2018. Shortly after, I gave birth to to our second son, Tristian in 2020.

I started this blog as a way to connect with more moms wanting to build a positive community around caring for their children. I have survived my motherhood journey thus far with well practiced routines, also trial and error.

Raising 2 under 2 was a challenge, yet we survived, with minimal breaks/adult time. We’re located in a city with no family or close friends. So needless to say, our world revolves around our kids.

I’ll be sharing many facets of our life- good/bad/indifferent. I hope you find value in the content and find our blog as an add resource to help you find solutions, humor, inspiration, etc. in your journey!
