It wasn't until I became a mom that … Continue reading Mom: We Celebrate You
Some days are a lot harder than others. Some nights Lucia doesn't sleep.. such as the past two nights. This morning I actually found myself frustrated that she wouldn't go to sleep, which is silly because she's 2 months old and is awake for a reason. So I thought to myself, why am I feeling … Continue reading Self Care as a New Mom
Before Lucia, I had all the time in the world to clean. I'm a weird one and I actually enjoy it too, so now that I don't have the time I use to have, I get this weird itch. Nesting helped a lot during pregnancy, I ended up purging half of my house. There was … Continue reading Busy Mama Spring Cleaning
