Hey friends! It’s been forever, no lie. I can’t even tell you the last time I logged on here and tried to bust out a blog post. Maybe Christmas? I’ve been feeling like I’ve hit a creative stump (slash writers block) and instead of forcing anything I’ve just been going with the flow. Posting on Instagram when I’m inspired but trying not to feel the pressure if I don’t… it’s been freeing and kind of disappointing at the same time. And I know, that totally doesn’t make sense but sometimes that’s how it goes with feelings.
SO, in my unintentional search to get inspired I’ve been keeping my eye out for something that would push me out of my comfort zone a little bit. Luckily, I had my good friend Bre announce that she was once again hosting Catch Me At the Luxe collaborative event and even one upping herself from last year with two events over two days. Last year was awesome and so much fun to be a part of which I shared HERE. This year Day One was all things motherhood with the Luxe Mama Shootout which I was so happy to attend. What could be a better fit!?
Sometimes a girl just needs to hang out with some other mamas who are going through the same things, right? Mamas need friends! I think this is so important and sometimes what helps keep me sane. To know that you aren’t the only one out there that’s a hot mess or who once in awhile doesn’t actually leave the house till lunchtime haha. It’s hard keeping friends that aren’t in the same stages of life as you are and making mom friends can seem so daunting. But, having adult relationships is so key to your happiness… because sometimes you need a girls night, to leave the babes at home and drink some margaritas. AMEN.
So this is me… two girls under 4, a brand new entrepreneur (more to come on that next week!), 31 year old mama who is looking for more mama friends haha. Here’s to stepping outside your comfort zone, taking those much needed breaks and meeting new friends!
