We are now a family of 4!! I delivered our daughter at the end of December and she has been such an amazing addition to our family. Our oldest is loving being a big sister and has adjusted much better to not being an only child than we expected. My life is full and happy, but it hasn’t been without its issues. This pregnancy was incredibly difficult for me (she was over 10lbs at birth!) and my recovery has been equally as difficult. The healing process from my c-section has been hard, but I was not expecting the emotional imbalance to hit this hard.
With my first, I experienced a lot of crazy emotions–the top one being worry–since we were just at the beginning of the pandemic and we really had no idea what to expect. We purposefully isolated ourselves to keep our family safe. This time around we didn’t have to isolate, but I am finding myself feeling more isolated this time around. During the last, almost, 3 years since having our first I have felt a loss of self and the feeling has only increased with the birth of our second. My emotions are all over the place.
But I am trying to get back to me. Again. Starting with what I feel passionate about…makeup. I have begun to revamp this site as well as my Etsy shop which has included a who knew logo which I am in love with. I am also working on some new products that I can’t wait to share. While I don’t have tons of time during the day, I am taking my maternity leave to rediscover myself and my passions. Hope you all come along for the ride.
