In 2017, I fell in love with reading mommy blogs and watching mommy Youtubers. The moment I found out I was pregnant, I begin researching and trying to learn all kinds of things related to being a mom. Before I was pregnant, I would read blogs here and there about something I was interested in. I looked for workouts, DIYs, meal ideas, makeup, and hair tutorials. It wasn't until I was about to become a mom that I got so into it. I loved being able to take a look inside someone else's life who was going through some of the same things I was. I was deep into everything that was pregnancy and twin pregnancy-related.
I continued to turn to other mommy bloggers and YouTubers after I had the boys, and let me tell you. It really got me through some hard times as a new mom. During this time, I felt overwhelmed with this enormous new responsibility and everything that came with being a new mom, and I felt so alone even though I had the most amazing partner and family, I still felt alone. I was a young stay at home mom of twins, and my days were filled with crying babies and nipples so raw they bled. I needed help and didn't know how to ask. I was embarrassed to ask for help. I didn't want to seem like I wasn't capable of what I thought I was born to do. I quickly turned to mommy blogs and videos, and I instantly felt comforted and like wasn't alone. I felt understood. Watching other mommy's deal with the same daily struggles, I dealt with made me feel like I was going to be okay.
Over the past two years, I have focused on my role as a woman and mother and what my real purpose here is. I still haven't quite figured that out yet. Because I was so influenced by other women and mothers, I have decided to go ahead share this season of my life with you all following along. Opening up my life to others is totally scary and totally not something I would typically do. Writing has always been a passion of mine, and so is helping and connecting with others. Being a working mom now, of twin boys has taught me so much on how to be more efficient and intentional with my time. Capturing these little moments and sharing them with you guys is just another extension of me. This is my outlet to share my experiences and moments in my life and what inspires me. Hope you follow me along!
