one of my greatest struggles since becoming a mother is maintaining balance. there never seems to be enough hours in the day when taking care of le bebe, running a business, and managing a household-- not to mention sprinkling in a little self-care here and there. a goal of mine for the remainder of this year is to make a conscious effort to be fully present in whatever it is i'm doing. putting down my phone, stepping away from the computer, and truly, fully absorbing every detail. continuing to make time for adventures, playdates, and classes-- because though they aren't "work" they're just as important-- and time with my sweet, sunshine of a son is always the most fulfilling part of my day.
