Hello again! I missed you. It’s been quite a while since I last posted and a lot has happened. Most importantly, I am now almost three years into motherhood! My little girl Lucie is my light and has taken over my entire world for the past couple of years. I love her to death and this mom thing has been sooo much cooler and harder than I ever could have imagined. I GET IT now when I hear of moms saying they feel they lose themselves and their identities the first couple years of motherhood. It is all consuming physically, emotionally, psychologically, financially etc… It is also completely true that no matter how large the sacrifices and how bumpy the ride, the rewards and joys of bringing life into this world are beyond compare. It really is an unimaginably intoxicating type of love. Mother Nature knows what she does because Lord knows I needed some type of intoxication to get me through those first few sleepless, crying, clueless, colicky months!
Even though I feel beyond blessed that I have had the opportunity to be a stay-at-home-mom for the past couple of years, I miss having another identity; another sense of purpose; a creative outlet. Since fashion has always and will always be a part of me, I decided to give this blogging thing another go!
Hopefully this blog can become not only a creative outlet to talk about my favorite things- style, fashion, culture, but also a means to provide another realistic perspective of a modern day mom trying to keep it all together in this dynamic, pressure-filled yet beautiful-when-we-take-a-moment-to-look world we live in.
I look forward to connecting with all you stylish ladies and Mamas out there!
