Okay, ladies. I asked you all on Instagram several days ago what you wanted to read about on the blog this week, and many of you mentioned tips on achieving a better work/home balance. Some of your suggestions tied into this topic, with questions like ‘How to make more ‘ME’ time. All I do is give to everyone else’ and ‘How can I get rid of the working mom guilt?’ Clearly…the struggle (and juggle) is REAL.
I feel like I’m beginning to get to know you all a lot better, and you have also been getting to know me. I absolutely love this, because I blog and share my life with you guys with the sole purpose of creating a community that supports and inspires one another. I share parts of my life that I feel passionate about: being a mom, wellness, feeling good in your own skin, living your best and most authentic life (and of course, beauty, home decor, travel, and all that fun stuff).
Hey loves! I hope everyone had an amazing weekend. Last week was such a whirlwind for us as Brielle came down with a horrible cold and I had a crazy busy work week, so we were all excited to unwind and relax this weekend. I’ll admit, I have a difficult time doing nothing. I get antsy if I sit around too long, and I find I like to keep busy on the weekends with fun family outings, dinner parties or errand running.
Today Nick and I are celebrating our 5 year wedding anniversary, and it’s totally bringing me back to that special day we said our vows. It’s hard to believe that it has already been 5 years – time has flown by. With that said, we have been through more in the last 5 years of marriage than we have in the last 15 years we have known each other (yes, we are high school sweet hearts).
Finding balance in life is one of those topics that I think most people struggle with. We all have so many areas of our lives that we desperately want to juggle perfectly – family life, a job, home, friends…the list goes on. And what I’ve realized is that many of us put a ton of pressure on ourselves to achieve this “perfect” balance. When we can’t keep up, the guilt weighs heavy on us. I know personally speaking, I have struggled with this a lot.
