Hi, I’m Denise.

Hi, I’m Denise.

I’m so glad you found stlMotherhood! I’m Denise, a St. Louis blogger mom with a couple boys and a passion to share all the fun stuff you can do in this awesome city! 

Official Explore St. Louis Summer Ambassador Search.

I believe in playing with your kids, whether it’s breaking out the crayons, chasing them through a maze at the Missouri Botanical Garden or spending hours learning Minecraft with them! 


I’m an at-home mom with a background in journalism. I’ve been a freelance editor and columnist for Patch.com and a stringer for the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. I’ve written for Boys’ Life, Missouri Life and few blogs here and there. 

I get around! Every week I bring fun weekend plans to your email box via St. Louis Magazine, and I’ve done a few recipes and crafts on Great Day St. Louis and Show Me St. Louis. Recently I was really excited to get recognized as the Best Family Blog with a St. Louis focus from the MIdwest Influencer Network, and last summer I was a finalist in Explore St. Louis’ search for a Summer Ambassador. Pretty cool!

Interested in working with me? I love reviewing kid friendly products and all things local to St. Louis. My boys are 9 and 17, so I don’t really do baby stuff anymore, but I’m hip deep in Hot Wheels, homework, XBox, Minecraft and all the noisy stuff that makes raising boys fun. We’re into outdoor adventures (both boys are scouts), arts and crafts, hiking, biking and all kinds of St. Louis fun.
