I am Alexis Anaya.
I am the fiance of Shane Murphy aka ShaneHasABeard. Together we have 4 children (ages 1, 3, 5 and 7), with my two oldest coming from a previous marriage. Shane is an amazing step-dad and dad, but we face challenges just like everyone. I deal with Fibromyalgia on pretty much a daily basis and kidney stones on and off for three years, while staying at home with our kids, running my two Direct Sales business and working on the promotion and product line of @shanehasabeard. Shane is currently working two jobs (transitioning out of one and into another), always has his mind on new material for his Twitter account and suffers from OCD daily.
Take all that and add our wedding in September and a big move to another state in December and you have the recipe for our hectic but normal (to us anyway) lives.
Sometimes Shane and I look at each other and wonder if we will ever catch a break but then we realize, that would be boring. Now is the time to discover what we want. We are adults and face adult situations while at the same time still finding ourselves and defining who we want to be as individuals, a couple, parents and professionals. It’s such an amazing time in our lives and I am so excited about documenting it.
We are the Beards, it’s so nice to meet you!
