Wives with Lives is a lifestyle blog dedicated to all of the facets of being a wife with a life! My goal is to create a space where married women can learn, laugh, love, and uplift. With all of the things happening in the world and all of the pressures we face, it’s great to have a space where we can just be…

I have been married for a few years now and I thought it would be awesome to connect with other married women, but didn’t really see what I wanted out there. So, I decided to create it!

I want to encourage real life conversations about marriage and life. Life is hilarious, difficult, emotional, scary, joyful, and adventurous… but most of all it is real! So, I celebrate the real you – a wife with a life!

I encourage you to read the articles, watch the videos, interact and post comments, and join our community on Facebook. There will be more coming soon as we grow, and we look forward to you growing with us!


Who is this Wife with a Life – Shakira?

I’m the quintessential eternal optimist… rose colored glasses… glass half full kinda woman. I really do believe good things will happen and what does happen is for the best. No my life hasn’t been all sunflowers and sunshine, but I choose to see the good. I also tend to be very logical and strategic and believe in planning and I’ve never met a list I didn’t like!

I’m married to an amazingly supportive and wonderful husband and we currently live in NJ, although we’re both southerners at heart! I work in marketing and enjoy what I do. I enjoy traveling, eating good food, having awesome adventures, traveling, watching movies and tv shows (sic-fi/rom com), hanging out with friends and family, traveling, bothering my husband, cooking, reading, making memories, traveling, planning things, taking pictures with my gangsta camera, and whatever else comes across my email! I’m pretty open to anything and love trying/doing new things and meeting new people. I’m not sure if you caught it, but I have a severe case of wanderlust. I also believe in supporting your community so I serve on a junior board, am a mentor, and a proud member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc..

Nice to meet you and I hope to see you here often!
