Stephanie and her husband are Corpus Christi natives who relocated to the RGV in 2017. Stephanie's passions are travel, Hanson, Disney, motherhood, and writing. Stephanie is a 35-year old work-from-home-wife and mom to three little ones (5, 3, and 1), and one in heaven. She has a B.A. in English from the University of Dallas and adores writing a whole lot about… well, everything! Stephanie previously wrote for the Corpus Christi Moms Blog but is now incredibly excited to begin and share the next chapter of her family’s lives in the ever-friendly RGV!
