Hey there, Earthlings! Welcome to the zany world of The Real Parents ( Jesse & Tia )The Dynamic Duo – that’s us, the two lovebirds with a penchant for wrangling not just business deals and design dilemmas, but also our two mini-mes who are as wild about adventure as a squirrel is about a bird feeder.

Coming to you live from the mitten state (yes, Michigan!), our family is all about diving headfirst into adventures (sometimes literally), cultivating our own food empire (one tomato at a time), and savoring the zestiest flavors life has to offer (because who wants a bland life, right?).

Our blog is like the family van – packed with travel hacks that could make Lewis and Clark green with envy, gardening gold nuggets that’ll turn your thumbs greener than a grasshopper, and homesteading how-tos that make Little House on the Prairie look like amateur hour.

Not only do we spill the beans on our top-secret travel spots (shh, don’t tell the tourists), mouthwatering bites (calories don’t count if they’re delicious, right?), and all the products that make our world spin ’round (we’re looking at you, multipurpose spork), but we also lace each tale with a dollop of humor, because let’s face it, life’s too short for boring blogs!

Blogging isn’t just what we do—it’s our jam, our salsa, and our soul food! It’s our digital scrapbook where we get to share the ups, the downs, and the loop-de-loops of living this chaotic, beautiful life with you, our extended cyber family.

Oh, and did we mention we’re also business owners and designers? When we’re not playing superhero in the realm of entrepreneurship, we’re crafting designs so enchanting they’d make Picasso throw down his paintbrush.

So buckle up, buttercup! If you’re into getting your hands dirty in the garden, living the vagabond dream, or just want to eat your way through life’s buffet with a couple of Michigander mavericks, you’re in the right place. Let’s laugh, learn, and leap into this blogging adventure together – it’s going to be a hoot!

Stay adventurous, stay hungry, and stay tuned!

Cheers, The Real Parents 🌽🚗🌻🍕
