You guys…I love blogging. Four years ago I started Running to Bake and I absolutely loved writing, expressing myself, baking and sharing my journey. Since then, quite a lot has changed. I found I needed a space for not JUST baking, but cooking as well, so “My Real Life Kitchen” was born. I never really connected with that blog…it was also just not the right time. I had just gotten pregnant with O and work had completely taken over my life.
Becoming a mom was hard for me. Like, really hard. I was completely blindsided by how lost and confused I felt all the time. As some of you know, I really struggled with breastfeeding and I was not mentally healthy. Luckily, I got the help I needed (which included medication) and was able to heal and progress.
Since becoming a Mom last July, I’ve found my groove as a mother, but in the process lost my groove as myself. I also wasn’t expecting that. Yes, I am a mom, but I’m also an individual with goals, aspersions and challenges. Trying to find a balance between these two people has lead me back to the blog world.
I’ve been posting a lot of Insta Stories and I’ve had so many moms reach out to me and say “YASSSSSSSSSSS, thank you for telling it like it is” So, I wanted to carry those over to this space.
There will be a lot of poop stories, a lot of temper tantrum stories (both O’s and my own) as well as my journey back to connecting with myself. I know I’m not alone in this and for anyone else going through this (even if you’re not a mom) I want us to share in the adventure.
Spit up and Sippy Cups…here we go!
