My name is Alicia Marie and after meeting the love of my life and moving to Montana to be with him, I became a stepmom of two amazing boys. Amazing is the right word, but it should also be accompanied by difficult and testing at times. Everything I have done and sometimes still do in their eyes is in comparison and in competition with their mother. While you want to yell from the rooftops, you know it’s not the right thing to do. So instead…you write a blog to share with other Bonus Mom’s. I hope my wisdom, mistakes, and accomplishments help you on your journey as well. Enjoy the laughs!
I grew up in Helena, Montana and after high school, I moved to Phoenix to attend Arizona State University for my Undergrad and Grand Canyon University for my Master’s degree. I was able to obtain a job with the Department of Homeland Security working in both Phoenix and Washington DC. I now reside in Montana with my husband and his two boys. We enjoy hiking, camping, fishing, traveling, and sports. Go Griz! Go Seahawks!
