Mommas! A moment alone is a rare thing once you bring little humans into this world, right? But do you remember the days of being single and lonely? Maybe not, but I do! I remember feeling lonely in my 20’s and dreaming for the day to be surrounded by my future family someday – a husband and babies! And now that I have that, I crave maybe even just a visit to the restroom or the mailbox alone some days. haha So I always like to reflect back on those lonelier days when I wondered if I was ever going to be a mom who is constantly tripping over toys on the floor and carrying a baby on my hip. And now I’m living that! And I LOVE it…even on the days when all I need is a moment alone, I remind myself that THIS is the life I dreamed of having one day.
Which is why no matter where you are in your journey – whether you’re single, married with no kids, a mom to 5 kids, a working mom or a stay at home mom – just appreciate where you are because someone is out there wishing for what you have! Guaranteed! I know that can be hard to do when you’re in the thick of it, but living in a grateful space is so much MORE rewarding & fulfilling than living in a “grass is always greener” space. I promise! Give it a try this week!
Another thing I’m grateful for is summer layers! I’m still working on this “mombod” of mine and I do feel good about getting workouts in and making healthy meal choices, but I’m not going to lie…I still feel very self conscious in summer time because I don’t want to expose certain parts of my body. But at the same time, I don’t want to sweat my a** off wearing long sleeves and jeans all summer long. So I’ve found that one of my fave combos is a light weight dress with an airy kimono or cardi over the top of it. I love how comfy and summery this outfit is and you can adapt it to so many different occasions.
I am obsessed with this lace cardi I found on Amazon – it’s so airy, can be used as a swim coverup or over any outfit, like a cute tank & denim shorts or over a cute maxi dress. It’s stretchy and comfy – no itchy lace here. AND, it’s under $30!
