AboutOur Blog Life

Jennifer & Roy Wakumelo

A Lifestyle Blog

You’ve found it, our place of creative expression and genuine recommendations. We are tech nerds raising two awesome kids in our home in the sunny southern US. We live a balanced and busy life working from home, and sharing the joys we experience every day with our beloved minis! We love helping people, so much of what you’ll find on our blog will be related to sharing our knowledge and recommendations. We only write posts and curate content about products & services that we trust, use and believe in!

 We’re a couple of happily married millennials living our best life. Put simply, we are work from home nerds obsessed with our awesome kids. Having blogs to share helpful content with our readers makes us feel enriched while documenting our journey through life. Blogging also gives us a creative outlet, satisfying our need to build beautiful things together. Follow along for fun posts about everything we love about our lives!

 

Our Journey To Here…

When we first started blogging years ago on our food blog, Real Food To Heal, both of us were working outside of the home, 40+ hours per week with an hour commute each way. While there were so many things we wanted to share on the blog, we simply never had enough time to do it. We found ourselves in a situation where we had more halfway finished drafts than blog posts, and put down the computer to spend time with our precious babies, or catch up on sleep. Now that we have a far more balanced work and home life, we are making up for lost time with more web design and blogging! Oh, and we wanted to talk about way more than food, so here it is! If you found Our Blog Life from our original blog, Real Food To Heal and only wanted food content… sorry. Our Blog Life is a more balanced blog that shows the real Wakumelo Family, the ones behind the spicy Instant Pot recipes!

We intend to share as much as possible to entertain anyone who stumbles across our online outlets. Prepare yourself for cuteness overload and dad jokes, discount codes on fun things and random giveaways, along with plenty of straight up cool stuff we can’t wait to share with you! We do take part in affiliate programs, utilize ad networks and partner with brands on collaborations that relate to products or services we love and use ourselves. These are the common ways that bloggers and content creators can be compensated for their creative work and also earn small commissions for placing ad content on their sites. We choose to only partner with brands that we would recommend anyway, and only use trusted industry leading ad networks on our blogs. 

Make sure you get on the VIP list below for the latest, including discounts, freebies and exclusive content! If you are a brand looking to collaborate with us, fill out our contact form and we will be in touch! We are PR friendly and work with brands that we believe in and enjoy using ourselves. Make sure you check us out on social too, we love hashtags, selfies, cute kid pics and coffee!

Home & Family

Technology is completely ingrained in most people's lives, and we love to share things we find helpful in our home & lifestyle

There are so many ideas that stem from wanting to care for ourselves, and we love share about the latest trends and classics

Stay In Touch With Us on Social Media

We do love sharing on social, and would love to connect with you there as well! DM us and let us know you found us through the blog! We stay pretty active and love engaging with our audience. We also run giveaways more often on Instagram, so make sure we are connected there! See ya soon, friend! 

don't forget
to follow us On The 'Gram!

The episodes are about 30 minutes so it’s perfect for getting ready before leaving, a car ride, or unwinding and having a snack after school. For us, it’s a great alternative to screen time and still engages the kids in a fun story. The amount of screens kids have to be on for school these days is so high, and we love to have them be able to stay entertained but still be present in their environments to enjoy time doing activities aside from watching TV or playing on their devices.
