I had to be brutally honest with myself. 90% of my time spent in the app was scrolling, hearting, laughing, liking, and random commenting. Sure I offered commiseration, solidarity, and supports to mamas and other friends who needed it...and they did the same for me, but when I consider the amount of time I spent being useful and purposeful...Facebook seemed like a complete waste of time!
The title is 100% true, by the way. I did. And it was uplifting, enlightening, exciting, and terrifying all at the same time.
I wish much peace and love to everyone in 2018. May your families be happy and healthy, may your hearts be full, and may all your dreams be realized. ❤️
If you're checking in here, this is where I started working on my wedding gown, and it is lengthy. I detailed my process, trials, and tribulations journal style.
I always knew I wanted to design my own wedding gown whenever I got married. As a young girl, I never would have imagined that as an adult, I'd actually get to be the one to make it! I'm so very thankful that a $50 Kmart clearance sewing machine 6 years ago (updgraded since) and the help of YouTube led me to having the ability to be able to pull this off.
People often ask me about how we met and are shocked that everything we have built all spawned from social media before social media was even a real thing. But I like to think it’s not about how we met…it’s about how we have held on. We trust & we are patient with one another. We compromise & we change when we need to. We listen & we vent. We support & encourage each other to chase dreams. We appreciate one another. We cherish one another. And we love…we love through the good, the bad, through everything.
In regards to motherhood, we have tons of decisions to make straight out the gate.
Natural or medicated birth?
Breastfeeding or formula?
What parenting style will I practice?
How will I dress him...what if he wants to wear pink?
Will I go back to work? Stay at home?
As the children grow older, we have questions about screen time, friends, education, extracurriculars, you name it.
At some point in time...maybe two years ago, I had this grand vision of myself as a blogger. I saw myself writing regularly, always having something to post about. I even enrolled in a business course (and attended the e-sessions) on building blog traffic, making a blog profitable, and all that jazz. That was probably six months ago. To this day, my blog hasn't generated a penny of income. I'm 100% fine with that.
Happy Father's Day, also, to all dads everywhere doing the job: biological, adoptive, step, whatever your title may be. Y'all rock!
