Heyyyyyy guys did ya miss me? I decided to give myself a little time to test the waters, mainly to make sure my mood stabilized, thus far I’ve been feeling so much better. I can’t believe it’s been almost 4 weeks since giving birth to baby number 2! My little mama has me wrapped around her finger day and night. I’m finally able to break free and get back to this here digital journal. Albeit bittersweet, this is my final maternity editorial. I know you’re just as sad as I am to hear that news lol. Although, I may do a few maternity to postpartum style stories to show how I’m repurposing pieces!

Anyway, I had to share these photos, they came out so beautiful!! I know I say that about every set of photos, but hell that’s what I think. I’m bursting with creative energy I can’t wait to begin tapping into! The more I think of what a mother represents to her children and family, the more driven I am. The more I realize how powerful I am, actually how powerful all women/moms are, we’re the voice of reason I’m telling you!  These images embody a lot of who I am in such a bold and beautiful way. I’m visual, I’m creative, I’m passionate, I’m beautiful, I’m bold, I’m daring. I’m also a mess, I don’t have all the answers, I’m imperfect, I’m hard on myself, I’m working on myself, and I’m my biggest critic. But, the most important thing I am is this...ME! I accept all of me because I know at the end of the day I want the best for myself first, that’s important, so I can give the best to my family. Keeping who I am in the forefront of everything I do is the one thing in life I know I have to do. I say this all the time, if you aren’t together, you can’t possibly keep anyone else together!! Personal advice...NEVER lose sight of that!!

A lot of why I feel better besides my hormones being basically back to normal, is I have a pretty amazing group of people in my life. I can’t even thank my friends and family enough for always checking in and encouraging me. Over the past 4 weeks they’ve been constantly strengthening me with good vibes and energy. You know who you are, I truly love them for that.

All in all I’m feeling great...and it feels great to feel great again. So many women going through pregnancy hold everything in and nothing good comes from that!!! In even better news, the podcast is back next week, I’m talking co-parenting, which has been nothing short of amazing in my case and I’ll be spilling the tea on why. I’ll be discussing the backstory in a post related to my co-parenting podcast, so swing by next week for that.
