Parenthood was a complete wake up call & although I've heard from MANY before me on just how life changing it really is, I (quietly) thought I could find a balance within it all as soon as I walked out of the hospital and boy-oh-boy was I wrong!! I know having twins was the game changer so I shouldn't be too hard on myself, yet I am shocked that even after all the advice thrown at me & the endless supply of online information, for the first year after becoming a mum i was really walking around in a haze. (new mums will know exactly what i mean!) I don't know what i would of done without the wonderful support from family & friends, & especially my superman of a husband.
Nowadays I wear motherhood quite easily & comfortably. Of course, some days are better than others & it all came down to that one thing - balance. Once Hubs & I figured out & followed through on a routine that suited all family members, life slowly but surely became easier & it feels like someone has released the valve on that pressure cooker.
I love that I'm able to spend more time on Olive Farm & those creative juices have been a flowing! My latest obsession (aside from Pinterest) has been hand beading. I've been doing so much of it lately that I'm sure it's going to hinder my eyesight. Hubs has to constantly remind me to take breaks & stretch my fingers to avoid RSI haha
In a few weeks I'll be joining forces with a lovely bunch of people to do a much anticipated photo shoot. I'm very excited & if it wasn't for this healthy routine I'm instilling on my life i would be in absolute pieces! so yay for balance!
