Guest Post: Our Life on a Budget

Last week, I was a guest on Our Life on a Budget.  You can read the post HERE.  Today, I am honored to have Stasia as a guest over here on my the blog.  You will love her bio, her tips, and her blog.  
You can also follow her on BloggerInstagramPinterestFacebook, and Twitter
*Be sure and read to the end--I have a special announcement and proposition!
Without further introduction, here's Stasia...

Hey, I am Stasia from Our Life on a Budget
I am a wife, mom, preschool teacher, cloth diaper consultant,  unofficial campus minister (my husband is the actual campus minister… I just like to help him:), and probably a few other things that are slipping my mind right now. I like to do a little bit of everything.

Our family when sweet BD was about 1 month old!

I started blogging a few years ago, but never really got into it until my husband and I lost our first child through miscarriage (you can read a little about this journey here and here).  We were brought to an incredible low, but God really used writing on the blog as a way for me to heal.  Slowly, but surely I began writing more and more, and  have grown to love blogging.  As the name of our blog infers I intended to write all about living with in our means.  But as my blog grew and as I read more blogs, I realized I like reading and writing about a wider variety of topics. My favorite blogs are ones that I call “this and that” blogs, covering everything from budgeting, to parenting, to whatever else!  So if you stop by and visit {and I hope you do} you will really read a little bit of everything.

I am not even going to lie… this picture is super old… like before we were even married old.
My husband Andrew and I have been married for almost 5.5  years… in that time we have had 4 homes, lived in 2 states, and have had 7 jobs between the two of us.  And the funny thing is we are probably about to move again for new jobs.  I never really considered ourselves adventurers… but I guess we kind of are!  Speaking of adventure, we started our adventure of parenthood a little over a year ago with the birth of our precious "little"(she was 9 lbs 9 oz at birth so she was never really considered little) girl Bailey Drew.  She is a hoot and has a HUGE personality already!

So I want to share with you a couple of my favorite posts of all time! There are my posts that are more personal like the one about our daughter’s birth and ones that have become popular on Pinterest about things like tips and tricks of moving. But when I think about a post that is a little bit of both, personal and informative, my favorite is 10+1 Things I Have Learned from My First Year As a Mom. I love it because it shares some of the things I wish I had known a year ago, while also reminding me of the journey we have been on for the past year.

Thanks for letting me share! I hope y'all stop by sometime!
