About Me

Welcome to Wife Atlanta Life. 🙂

I’m Valerie.

I’m a few years away from forty but still look like I’m approaching thirty. I am married to Stephen, who is a super sweet, loyal and hard-working man. We have been together for twenty years and we have five children. We have two boys and three girls. We’ve been growing our family (or trying to) for almost the entire time we’ve known each other. Unfortunately, we experienced miscarriages as well as secondary infertility so it took us a long time to complete our family.

By the name of my blog, you can tell that we live down south. Well, we have a pretty relaxed lifestyle here in the southern heat. He works in concrete and I stay home with the kids. We homeschool and always have. Our oldest just graduated, our second is in high school now, and our youngest student is seven doing mostly first grade work. We also have a two year old who may or may not be autistic and a spunky baby who is approaching her first birthday.

I have been blogging pretty consistently since I started my first one (it was called Atlanta Mom of Three) in late 2012. I stayed with it until mid-2015 when I needed to step back from blogging for a little while. I tried having a private, journal-styled blog during that time but it felt too lonely so it didn’t last long. In the spring of 2016, I started a new blog (called Living Lighter in Atlanta) and regularly posted there for over a year. I again needed time away from an audience so I stepped back. Since then, I have tried a handful of blogs but none have felt right. I’m feeling good about this one and hope to post here for a long time to come!

I hope you find Wife Atlanta Life to be encouraging and insightful. Thanks for stopping by!
