I am so excited to be joining in with Suzanne of The Glorious Mundane today for her Outside The Frame Link-up! I love the relationships that I have formed through blogging, which is why I’m joining in today! I love getting to know new bloggers and mamas :) Today is all about introductions, so I’m going to tell you way more than you ever wanted to know about me ;)
This is my beautiful family :) I’m Autumn and the writer of this blog (obviously). I’m a stay at home mom, and I’m also in the process of getting my real estate license. I have a degree in marketing, and used to be an event planner for a big restaurant in Pittsburgh, before leaving to stay at home with the kiddos. My husband, Charley, is a contractor who also flips houses. We are really excited about being able to work together once I get my real estate license. Our dream is to have our own show on HGTV! Just kidding. Kind of ;)
Caleb and Kyleigh are Charley’s kids from his previous marriage. Caleb is almost 13 (what?!) and Kyleigh is 9. Charley and I have two little boys together, Luca (4) and Enzo (20 months). The four of them are inseparable and they make me want to have ten more. Serious baby fever over here.
I often get asked if it is difficult to be a stepmom and have a blended family. Honestly, it can be so challenging at times. But as time passes, things do get easier. Co-parenting, the schedule, going from house to house – we have a lot of it dialed in now. I wouldn’t trade our life for anything :)
We live in the suburbs of Pittsburgh in an old Victorian that we are constantly working on. We love it here and never want to leave. Our favorite things to do as a family include camping, cooking/baking, spending a day on the golf course, going to the museum and science center, and movie nights at home. MY favorite things include reading, roaming the aisles of Target, wine, and Italian food :)
