I wanted to slow down because my 2019 life felt so hectic and busy, but not in a good way. Working from home, in addition to other restrictions that the pandemic caused, grounded me and revealed what the heart of my life really entailed. It gave me a fresh perspective and appreciation for the things that really matter. Of course getting pregnant and having my first child changed my perspective even more. Having a baby slows you down in a very unique way! Now as 2021 begins, I am starting the year with this fresh perspective and making a new intention.
It is happening. I’ve put up so many Christmas decorations in our house this week. I never thought I’d be one of those people who did such a thing before Thanksgiving. But, with this year being what it’s been, I felt like our home could use some extra days of holiday cheer. It’s the little things like this that have kept me going during this pandemic. So it's no surprise I’ve really enjoyed picking out some affordable holiday decor.
There’s a lot of tips, advice and products focused on taking care of your newborn, but before Liam was born I found it difficult to find real accounts and meaningful information about what to expect for new mom life and how to prepare for postpartum.
