I’ve been struggling to produce regular content as of late, in case you haven’t noticed. It’s not that I haven’t been doing anything (although for several weeks during my first trimester that was exactly the case!), but I am still trying to figure out how to transition into motherhood. I am not typically a “tell-all” kind of person, so the odds of me sitting down and writing all of the gory details of my pregnancy are highly unlikely. However, my life is drastically changing and that means changes will inevitably be coming to this space as well.
I will obviously still be cooking because we have to eat and I am incapable of eating fast food or boxed dinners (the horror!). So those of you who come here for the sweet and savory will not be disappointed, I assure you. I’m also already planning our first vacation as a family of three, so if you stop by for travel tips – never fear. But I’m also hoping to add in more about pregnancy and motherhood as well.
As I’m learning and growing (literally) I want to share bits and pieces of that journey with you all as well. If I stumble upon good advice or great, stylish products, then I want this to be a place where I can gush over that too. Speaking of, if you haven’t read Bringing up Bébé by Pamela Druckerman, then you need to drop everything and pick it up now. I cannot recommend this book enough and I am so glad it was the first book I read after finding out I was pregnant. It’s chock-full of practical tips for raising children who sleep, wait patiently, and eat real food. Not to mention, plenty of advice and reminders for parents to calm down and retain their identity as individuals and spouses after delivery. Pretty excellent stuff.
I hope you will all hang in there with me as I figure this new role out and exactly how it’s going to fit into the blog. 2017 is looking to be a very exciting year!
