OUR STORY

Posted by Joselyn Cherry on

CURIOSITY. PASSION. DRIVE.

5 Little Pumpkins was born out of a life change that was totally out of our hands. I had worked part-time from home in various fields from Finance to the Non- Profit industry while we raised our children over the last 11 years. While my husband worked in the IT field. After 15 years, his company closed its doors.  We decided we all needed a break! 

NORTH BY NORTHWEST

Enter, the GREAT ALL AMERICAN road trip.  We drove across the country from our home in Georgia, up the West Coast to Seattle. It was an unforgettable travel escapade that would redirect our journey forever. 30 Days. 5 Kids. 

5 LITTLE PUMPKINS

 Oh did I mention that? We have 5 little pumpkins. 3 girls and twin toddler boys, that are literally the wind beneath our wings. (Add in our adult son, who isn't so little anymore, and if you're keeping count, that makes 6!)  

Yep, it was time to get back to work!

THE DREAM

While we both looked for full-time jobs, we thought about how we could experience the same time freedom and quality of life we had just spent during our momentous travel with while working from home together?  

MAKING THE JUMP

Inspired by our travel and leading with our passion for wine after an unforgettable anniversary trip to Napa, we initiated our Wine & Wanderlust Lifestyle Blog.  Refining my experience in marketing and e-commerce, and my husbands IT background, we opened a website as a way to create income from home. 

ALL IN

So this is it. Both of us working full time from home while taking care of our small village. As they say, the days are long and the nights are even longer.

What motivates us to keep going is "the big picture". Our desire to use our gifts in a fulfilling way while enjoying the adventure.
