I’ve been in love with the idea of creating a capsule wardrobe for over a year now. The idea of having a carefully curated and cohesive closet of clothing is such a dream. So, finally, I’m doing it!
So here we are, almost to the middle of March and I have yet to post a single yoga pose on the gram. I’d like to tell you that even though I haven’t posted on Instagram, that I’ve been consistent with my daily home practice… but that would be a lie. Before we go into self-bashing, let’s pause. Consistency is important, but so is balance.
I can’t believe it’s already March. We just kinda slid into Chapter 3 of 2018, didn’t we? This month is going to be a busy one for me. Between doctor appointments for the baby and I, finishing our taxes (ugh), and day-to-day chores, I’m going to need to carve out some me time. That’s why I’ve chosen to do a 30 day yoga challenge.
First and foremost, I’ve noticed a few new subscribers and I want to thank you guys and welcome y’all to this little blog family!
#Weekendcoffeeshare is a writing prompt that allows bloggers to create a more personal space aside from the curated content that is usually posted. This prompt facilitates a virtual coffee date between the blogger and the reader and allows for unadulterated realness. These conversations are raw and may not always make perfect sense to everyone. I discovered this hashtag (kinda late) and thought it would be the perfect addition to this blog seeing as how I’ve needed to get some things off my chest. Also, I welcome healthy and constructive conversation in the comments. Are you ready?
If you are anything like me, you’ve probably spent hours watching YouTube videos about what moms-to-be packed in their hospital bags. You may have even taken notes and shopped their links for that super spacious duffel bag they used. After the fifteenth video, however, your list is probably a mile long and you’re no closer to understanding what you’ll really need and what you can do without. So before you watch another “What I Packed” video, I’d like to share with you what I wished I packed in my hospital bag. I think this will really help you make those final cuts when it comes time to pack.
You probably just read the title and are wondering what the heck I’m talking about. I’m talking about the future. I’m talking about the most amazing thing since sliced bread. I’m talking about a major game changer for us millennial women trying to live this organic life. Okay okay, I won’t keep you in the dark any longer…
I’m currently 13 weeks postpartum which means two things. First, my precious little boy is three months old! Watching him grow has been so interesting and so fulfilling all at once. (As I write this, he’s discovering that the hand he shoves in his mouth 24/7 is actually his.) Secondly, I feel as though I’ve experienced enough of “the postpartum experience” to give my two cents. Before we continue, my list is full of TMIs and the like, so if that kind of thing grosses you out or makes you feel uncomfortable, stop reading now. If you’ve got on your big girl panties, I invite you to continue on.
