Hi guys, so thankful you’re here! My name is Stephanie, I’m 27 years old,  married to my favorite human Gavin Burkard and live on the Central Coast of California with all our babies, Wyatt ( 2 years) and Rosie (7 months), Labrador Retriever Tank, and our 1966 Bronco!

In 2016 I was tired and bored with every social platform I was a part of. Natural authenticity was becoming a thing of the past and it all lacked what I valued, realness. I decided that I was done feeding myself ideas and images of unrealistic lifestyles of those that I identified with; a twenty something healthy wife and mother.

I decided to start my own blog with the idea that if I couldn’t find the sort of authenticity I was searching for, then I might as well start sharing my own. I began sharing my life in hopes that I could be to someone what I couldn’t find for myself, and my hope is you’re here for that reason! I write on things I value, and consider this community of readers and people I come across through blogging as one big massive community full of wonderful people all trying to find positivity and inspiration!

Our Kind of Real is my life. It is real, raw, happy and uplifting all at once. Everything from postpartum fitness, motherhood, and beauty favorites to my favorite travel essentials… I cover it all, and do my best to keep it as real as possible!
