A few weeks back I received an email from a long-time follower, and amazingly talented stepmom blogger, Beth from Babbling Blonde blog.
I love Beth’s story, her perspective and her commitment to following her heart!
Beth grew up in small town West Virginia in a super conservative, rural dot in coach country, USA. About 5 years ago she moved to Pittsburgh and ended a 7 year relationship with her college boyfriend… about a year after that she realized she was in love with her best friend Jen, who had an incredible 3 year old daughter.
Jen and Beth moved in together in 2016, and Beth official became a stepmom in 2017.
Obviously being in as same sex relationship makes Beth’s story a little different than the standard stepmom blogger, so when she had trouble relating to what she saw online, she started blogging about her own experience.
In this episode Beth and I talk about all things stepmom life, including Beth’s transition from single and straight, to not only being in a same sex relationship, but having an instant family.
We also tackle her family’s reaction, what it was like to move to a small town where her partner’s ex had deep roots, her biggest mistakes as a stepmom. what makes being a stepmom in a same sex relationship even more complicated and one of the habits she thinks that stepmoms should break.
I love this episode and I just adore Beth and I’m so excited to introduce you to her!
