Welcome! I’m Christin- The gal behind the blog.
I am SO glad you are here.
Let me tell you a bit about myself–
I am a Mama to 3 beautiful girlies or ringmaster of a small circus. I have a 3 year-old, Ella Grace & 11-month-old identical twin girls Wesley & Linley. I married my sweet, southern gent from Alabama and we share the same alma mater, Auburn University. War Damn Eagle! I currently live with my circus in hot and very crowded, Orlando, FL. I am a previous Special Needs teacher with my Masters in Education – I love working with kids, I love Jesus, being with friends & family, anything on the beach or water, good glass of vino and a small passion for all things fashion.
How did I decide blogging is where I would help others?
This past year has been a game changer for me. Having a 3-year-old was an easy subject when taking and posting pictures on social media. Then you bring in some twin girls and it’s just a picture fest up in this house. It brought a lot more followers and people curious about our lives- people asking where we got things for the kids, what we recommend for kids & how we make it look so easy. It started to actually bother me a lot because this is far from easy but people perceive things differently. Nothing is “perfect” but social media sometimes just shows the easy.
My truth– I run my house on celebrating the following things:
- a good baby bowel movement
- when the bowel movement is contained
- temperatures under 101
- if my toddler eats something besides a PB&J
- less than 10 tantrums a day
- if my toddler doesn’t demand fruit snacks for breakfast
- 5:00 wine
- uninterrupted sleep
Repeat. Ya feel me, moms? I wasn’t bothered because people were curious but because they thought/think we are “perfect.” HA! I have heard it too many times. Instagram is a photo reel people & it can truly do damage. We can all get sucked right in, day in and day out. I also know that IG and blogging can be positive and if it is here to stay, I am going to make my platform positive so that my daughters understand the capability of this tool.
I am so excited and ready to connect with you – I never in a million years thought my journey would be to write my heart to publish for the world to see or that I would ever blog in general. I am no author but I love pouring out my heart and living my truth- so here we are and I am SO glad you are here.
God put in my heart that he wanted me to be transparent and bold. This generated the blog name- (two things that take up my time) wine glasses filled to the brim and being a professional ass wiper. Excuse my language, God understands & loves me anyway! I am not perfect. It was clear I needed to touch on some messy topics and build a community so people didn’t feel alone. Here is to open truth, my realistic view as a mom, my initiative for Moms to give themselves grace and how we need a little wine and a lot of Jesus to get through life. I want to lead women to see the grace and not perfection in life. I invite you on my journey to seek less life chaos and more grace filled-confidence. I am pumped- let’s do this!!!
I am so excited to go on this journey with you Christin! God Bless you and Cheers🍷
