About

Life Without Pink is a mom’s guide for raising boys! You’ll find everything from cool gadgets, daily adventures, to personal stories, and tips for parenting boys.

Hello there. I’m Tina!

I have two very active boys {8 and 6 years-old)} and an extremely hardworking and supportive husband. We’ve been together for seventeen years and happily married for over ten!

After my second son was born, I was laid off from my Marketing Management position. I decided right then that I would take the time to build something from home so that I could be with my boys.

Four years later, I’ve finally made that a reality and I work full-time in social media right from my couch!

Motherhood is by farthest the hardest job I’ve ever had, but nothing on earth compares to how rewarding and whole it can make you feel. My blog has been such a blessing for me and has helped me realize the parenting struggles I sometimes face are completely normal.

The main purpose for starting my blog was to share my experiences raising boys and the challenges that sometimes go along with it. I want to give them a good foundation so they grow to be confident, strong, and respectful men. On my blog, I share my experiences and tips that have worked for me and hopefully will help other moms. 

Both of my sons have a ton of energy, so it’s important to keep them active and outdoors. I write about all of the ways I enjoy my family from camp outs to art projects to a backyard mini golf course.
