Becoming Motherful | A New Season
The blog is back...sort of. I probably would have laughed at my pregnant self 4.5 months ago if I would have said that I would be blogging again. After all, I have pretty mediocre style and now with a baby in my life, it's a good day if I am reaching mediocre. The truth is I missed having a creative outlet that was separate from work. Blogging every week gave me a little chance to reflect on the past week and record little bits and pieces of things I wanted to remember. So here I am, at it again. Not quite sure how this is going to go, but I am going to try to share parts of my motherhood journey. Sometimes it will be style (things you can wear while carrying/nursing/playing with a baby), maybe a little bit of our life at home, definitely won't be any cooking...unless cocktail recipes count ;)
In all seriousness though, I have been greatly inspired and encouraged by following other mothers throughout this new season of my life. No one can prepare you for how much your heart is going to burst with love for this little being, but also how challenging fitting into your new role can be.
With that said, let's talk mom jeans. I've been on jean buying binge since those old ones aren't as fitting (ha) as they used to be. These are pretty much as comfy as they come and paired with a pretty blouse, you will feel almost normal again. "How am I ever going to wear anything but a black t-shirt", this is what I've thought since having Wilder. There isn't a day or an hour that goes by that I don't have spit-up, breastmilk, or poop on me. The solution: a pretty black, machine washable blouse!
