hello and welcome!

This is my first time participating in the Ultimate Blog Party and I'm looking forward to meeting and learning from new friends out here in blogland!

So, for the newbies, welcome!


I'm Megan. I live in the beautiful Pacific Northwest with my husband and our nine month old twin daughters, Ruthie & Afton. The doctors tell us they're identical. We can totally tell them apart. So we don't know!

I started blogging in 2008, right after I got married and we lived in Southern Oregon. I was working a high-stress nonprofit job and my downtime was spent baking and crafting, and I wanted a place to share and decompress.

Fast forward four years, and now we've moved, finished our degrees (Andy's added a Masters), sold our stuff and backpacked Europe, and added two new little surprises to our family. It's been a wild ride, and it's amazing to see the subtle evolution of this blog from its beginnings as BohoMeme to now, The Boho Mama.

I write mostly about my new life as a stay-at-home-mama and the craziness that having twins brings, with some recipes, crafts, travel adventures, reflections, and local Portland delicious-ness (Coffee!) thrown in to keep things interesting. I'm also working on my first e-book, and I'm super excited about it!

I'm also on Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, Etsy, and Instagram (megkimmelshue).

I look forward to meeting you, and thanks again for stopping by!

  1. Happy UBP! Your girls are beautiful! I know the phrase "you must have your hands full" has probably already become old and tired to you, but hey you have TWO so of COURSE your hands are full! :) At least until they are walking, right? hehe I had kids in two sets, with two 6 mos. apart (my daughter & stepson) and then two adopted kiddos 21 mos. apart, so I've been there. I'm in the Northwest too, in Eastern WA. Nice to "meet" you!

  2. What cute twins! I love the name Afton. I have never heard it before. (I gave my boys unusual names.) Stopping here from the party. What is your ebook going to be about?

    1. Thank you Amanda! I hope you're feeling better. We named Afton after a Robert Burns poem about a river in Scotland. My ebook is all about supporting and boosting your milk supply using foods. It's been a fun project and a little bit of an obsession :) Your boys are so cute! Mine were early, too.

  7. Your daughters are precious! I LOVE the Pacific Northwest. I lived in Seattle for a few months just after I graduated from college. I think I left a little of my heart there. Stopping by from the upb 2012! Nice to "meet" you!
