WELCOME TO MOTHER OF BEEES. 

ABOUT ME //  
Hello, I'm Autumn Boucher. I moved coast to coast as a child but my family finally found it's home in the good ole' Midwest. Growing up I was exposed to many cultures and languages, picking up a little Spanish, French, and Armenian along the way. I took the fast track in life and became a mother and wife all before the age of 20 years old. If you know me personally you know I've always been the nurturing type and this "huge transition" became a natural one for me. I have a beautiful and supportive husband who I have been with since the young age of 15 and now a decade later he is still my favorite person and best friend. I also have three beautiful little ones, a boy and two girls. If i'm not posting here i'm probably homeschooling, oilin', knitting, making something yummy, enjoying family, or settling in with a good book. Want to chat? Find me on social media! 

ABOUT BLOG//
Gypsybeee.com started in 2012 as a partner to my vintage shop and a way to connect to my customers and vintage lovers alike. This space quickly grew and changed to cover many of my interests from knit and crochet, to art, design and beyond. As my blog content changed so did my blogging experience. Gypsybeee.com became a full time business for me and helped me to stay at home with my little ones while still fulfilling my personal love for design and social media. In 2014 I used my skills as a social media enthusiast and did work for a local clothing franchise as their head of social media marketing. After that experience I took a break from the web to focus on family but returned in 2015 to start an entirely new journey. Now this space is for inspiration, family, motherhood, holistic wellness, and everything real, simple, and honest.

WHEN DID YOU START HOMESCHOOLING AND WHY?
I started homeschooling in 2012 when my daughter was just 3 years old. Since then I've also started homeschooling my son who is now 5. At first homeschooling was a way to get a jump start on learning, since my husband and I are both quite the academics and have a thirst for knowledge and learning. After the first year I fell in love with the quality time homeschooling gave us as well as the quality of education. My children learn at their own pace and being home with one on one time gives us the opportunity to blaze through the subjects they find interesting and come easy to them while slowing down and really focusing on the subjects that they need a little more help. You can learn more about our homeschooling journey here.

WHAT KIND OF CAMERA DO YOU USE?
I shoot all of my photos for the blog with either my iPhone 6+ or my Canon Rebel t5i and a variety of lenses.

WHAT DO YOU EDIT YOUR PHOTOS WITH?
All of my photos are edited with the After Light app, VSCO, or Photoshop Lightroom 4.
