Hi There!

I’m so glad you’re here. πŸ™‚ My name is Stephanie Aleite and I’ve been blogging since 2011. At the time, I had been following some of the awesome veteran bloggers with RA like.. Hurtblogger, Britt Johnson. But I felt that something was missing… I wanted to read about someone who talked about the emotional side effects to being young and living with a chronic illness. I actually wanted to know how RA would affect me emotionally as a wife, a college student, and someday a mother…

So right after getting engaged, a friend of mine (thanks Adrianna!) suggested I start my own blog. I knew abosolutely nothing about blogging, but she suggested Tumblr and I got to writing right away. Never in a million years did I think anyone besides a couple close friends and my parents would read it. Nor did I think I’d still be doing it six years later! Recently, I relocated my blog from Blogger to WordPress-because they have an app and that’s so much easier for me because of my RA. But if you’d like to read more about my journey, feel free to keep reading below-posts which I imported from my old blog. Thanks for coming!
