Hi there, my name is Juan-Ri. I am the proud rugby wife of Springbok Franco Mostert. We share two gorgeous girls, Joia-Belle and Jemi-Mílja, and we're currently expecting our first baby boy in December. 

We are South Africans but we currently live between SA and Japan.

Being married to a rugby player, means that we are blessed to travel, experience different cultures and get to live in other countries. It also means that we experience some challenges that come along with the territory.

Anyhow, you'll get to read all about it :)



If you like structured chaos, then you're in the right place :) 

We are far from a 'perfect family' but we share the deepest love, happiness, and compassion for one another. This is my team. I want to share all our real-life stories with you, from motherhood to being a rugby wife and everything in between - our unique journey.

My passion is my family. I pour my heart and soul into everything I do and write. I have one goal in mind, and that is to create a safe virtual space where you and I can freely share our experiences, thoughts, and insights. As strong women we can; learn from, support and build each other up in ways you can't even imagine.
