Meet the Team : Blake



Hello CBMC ladies, my name is Blake and I am so excited to be joining this amazing network of women and most importantly other mamas! I am excited to meet new faces and grow and already amazing community. I am originally from Arizona, so coastal living is very new to me but I am ready to dive in head first. I currently am a stay at home mom and part time blogger/ Instagram Content Creator. My husband is our full time provider and an amazing father to our four year old Daughter and baby boy. 

Blake ShanksMOM:

Our family enjoys going out on staycations and exploring marine life. We love aquariums, zoo’s, and of course Seaworld. We haven’t always been this way; and that’s why I love writing about encouraging other families to live in the moment, explore, and enjoy life to the fullest. This came about after many years of infertility causing us to want to be more present in our daughters life rather than dwelling in our current problems. We took a difficult time in our lives and chose to create happiness, which I understand is easier said than done but never the less prioritized joy. Now I love sharing those joys with others, and meeting like minded mama’s who also enjoy doing the same. 

Blake | In and Out | Coastal Bend Mom CollectiveCOLLECTIVE:

Joining the CBMC is my next adventure, and I can’t wait to share that with you! There is such a powerful message in women supporting women and building up a community. I truly believe that which is why my social media door is always open for inclusive, supportive, and authentic conversations. My Instagram is somewhere we’re every mom should be able to be themselves and find joy that you aren’t alone in parenting. (We all know how difficult it can be) I hope you enjoy my content, as I am excited to share it with you.

She is married to Rad Brad and has two boys, Hudson and Finn. Elisabeth enjoys all kinds of music, singing at the top of her lungs - especially in the school drop off line when the kids are getting out of the car - being outdoors as much as possible and is a complete and total proponent of NOT having a television in the living room.
