I started this blog in Dec 2010, I wanted it to be a way to share my life experiences and read other fellow bloggers’ stories. Like many of you, I was pretty scared, nervous and excited to open up my heart to a whole new world (blogging) that I have no experience in, and I’m glad I did because it’s been such a wonderful journey so far.
The decision to name my blog “purse meets diaper bag” is so in line to all the changes and new experiences I have been having since becoming a mom in November 2011. A lot of my life, and what I blog about, is finding that balance between the woman in me that is still growing and changing and how that merges with this new mommy side of me that is revealed daily.
My husband and I celebrated 8 years of marriage this year! I absolutely love being a wife (yes even during the challenging times) and sharing our life experiences together. We have two beautiful daughters, Celeste who is a couple months shy of her 6th birthday and Elysse who will be 3 in January, which means many experiences to share with you all! We also have an old English bulldog named Biggie that we adopted in December 2009. He’s about to celebrate his 9th birthday and has been a part of our family for 8 years.
Right now I’m really on a course of being more mindful of my health and fitness. The first few years of being a mom and transitioning into that new role were really tough for me. As you can see (or will see) from some of my past posts, I struggled a lot with how to merge who I was pre-motherhood and now as a mom. The balance between fueling myself, which is super important, in order for me to pour all of me into my family can be challenging when you are juggling many things. It took me a while to find my course and each day I am learning new ways of personal growth as a woman, wife, and mom.
I love God, my husband, daughters, family and friends and work every day on becoming a better person and learning to be flexible and not let the little things unsettle me. I absolutely love interacting with people and feel it’s so rewarding when I’m helping someone out.
I sure hope you’ll stick along for the ride and I look forward to learning and building a connection with you too!
