About The Missouri Mom

I am just living the dream here, someone’s dream, but it is a dream. 

For some reason everyone thinks it is important that I share a little about myself, sometimes I over-share, but I am sharing! 

In 2010, as a joke I started my first "serious" blog Adventures Among Us (which is still live) where I shared ideas for travel, events, blah blah blah! 

In 2012, my world was altered just slightly, so to close off my past in 2013, I started my new blog The Missouri Mom.  I also was economically forced to move to my hometown to live in my parent’s basement. Divorce can rock your world. 

In 2015, after declaring men were from hell, I met a man that could tolerate me and sometimes like me - so I married him in 2016. 

I spent 7 years working for the State of Missouri in the social field.  I loved every moment of helping people, hated every moment of the process and policies that tied me to my desk and phone.  

After surviving Covid as a state worker while caregiving for my aging father-in-law with Alzheimer’s, I resigned at 5am one morning because family first. 

In 2021, I opened my first little

Vogue Mom N Pop Shop in my hometown while also staring as the non-native Mayor’s Wife…..I am from here, he is not. 

In 2022, a friend of mine and l, opened our second shop the Old Lutesville Emporium, bringing an eclectic antique mall to rural Missouri.  

Here, on this crazy website, I share our life in rural Missouri, events in Missouri, travel stories, social media tips, family life, and my personal thoughts - some really personal and embarrassing for my family.  

So anyways....  feel free to connect with me on Twitter (@BeckyAdventure)Facebook (The Missouri Mom), on Instagram.
