When i first had kids i totally lost myself. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
like you couldn’t find me anywhere. i was a nursing, daniel tiger watching, p***y training mama who didn’t know who she was or what she liked to do anymore. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
whenever i do anything i go all in and this was that idea on steroids. motherhood is all consuming. your body changes inside and out, what you do with your time changes, your priorities shift, what you google is different... the list goes on. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
i remember my first mother’s day as a mom of two and my husband said “ go do something fun for just you!” sounds glorious right? it wasn’t for me. in fact, it was a catalyst for a break down. i looked at my husband and said “i don’t know what i like to do or who i am without my kids. that has to change and i gotta figure it out asap.” i mean... let’s be honest, there were a lot more tears in this conversation then i’m mentioning but if you know me, you know i could cry at a diaper commercial, every episode of grey’s anatomy for 10 years, and certainly a big life crisis. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
so i set out to find myself. to find out what made me feel creative, laugh, what i like to do not to be productive, or care about the outcome, but just for fun. through this process i’ve gained a true sense of self, confidence in who i am now, a new personal style that represents me in this moment, and an ability to be an even better mom. it also has reignited my love for my work with you and that has been one of the most rewarding parts.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ i share this because i know so many of us lose ourselves in our work, our kids, our marriages. there is nothing more powerful than truly knowing who you are. it’s an ever growing and changing process for me but i’m committed to loving myself in the moment. my way of helping women in their closets involves figuring out who they are right now. not who they used to be, not who they want to be, but who they truly are. i’m here because i’ve been there and we are in this together. ✨✨✨
This time last year i was playing with samples and designs and planning the launch of my homeware for the following year. little did i know i would have a few distractions and adventures along the way. the countdown has begun to becoming a mummy for the first time... 3 weeks left! 🙌🏼🙆🏽♀️ it’s amazing how time flies. #tbt#3weekstogo
Anyone else get kinda sad when their b**e hits a new milestone? mine just turned 6 months the same day their first tooth appeared! sure am gonna miss that gummy smile. part of me wishes they’d just stay little forever 🐛
Finally got to try out @cacao70 with my bestie and it was amazing! i absolutely love chocolate and the fact that most of the menu was chocolate based was like my stomach was sent to heaven 😋 i have no clue why i waited so long to try it out! my wallet and diet are not happy that i went, but that’s okay because i got to see my bestie and that was the best part 😍
Okay so i absolutely love love love this glomama right here💕 @iamcreesummer and i really love how she calls herself a pirate. a description ive always referred to myself as but that for another post. back to the video lol)
thank you @greatbigstory for the story. it was always so dope as a kid to see someone of color as a cartoon on tv. what’s doper is being able to show your kids the difference you made in the world. #thesegoals#mamagoals#gomamaglo 💕💗
2018: where you can build a 5 figure fitness business from your phone while being demoted to the back seat to feed your 10 week old... oh and your 2 year old is pretending to trick or treat the whole time and it’s not even halloween yet 🙈
can’t wait to see what 2019 has in store!
I’ve never been one to be organized or want things to have a specific place in each room until we got ourselves a house. our apartment was so small that it didn’t have enough room to have specific places for things or things hanging on the walls because we knew it was going to be temporary. when we got the house my mind started thinking about all of these amazing ideas of how i wanted everything to look. 9 months later after moving in and after a busy wedding season i am just now taking the time to get things the way i want it finally. i started with my office and now i am working on my room. i have a highlight on my profile where i am showing snippets of how it’s coming along so take a look if you care to follow along. being a housewife means i get to do the decor, right?! 😍
Ich genieße gerne die stille 💛 ....das foto ist noch vom wochenende und es war einfach so wunderschön hat mich an meine zeit in #österreich erinnert ich bin ja mehr oder weniger am dorf groß geworden (klein stadt 😜) bevor ich mama war wollte ich aber schon immer in die große stadt es konnte nicht hell laut und schrill genug sein 😜
aber jetzt mit der kleinen maus kommt die sehnsucht wieder mehr zum ländlichen....ich hoffe wir haben bald wieder bisschen mehr wald 🌳 und wiese neben uns 💛
welches team seid ihr? stadt 🌃 oder ländlich/dorf 🏞
