A while back I decided to change my blog’s title/name from Thoughts In My Heart to the more apt “Purse Meets Diaper Bag”. For all my original followers thank you SO much for sticking by me through all the adventures and stories, and if you’re new to my blog I sure hope you’ll decide to stick around.
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.
I decided to change the name of my blog because “purse meets diaper bag” is so appropriate 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 7 years of marriage last May! 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 5 now and Elysse will be turning 2 in a few days, which means many new experiences to share with you all! We also have an old English bulldog named Biggie that we adopted in December 2009. He just celebrated his 8th birthday and 7th year being part of our family.
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!
