I just love watching my daughter Daphne observe the world. The way she sees things is so different and fresh and it really has brought an element of magic and wonder back into my life.
I have become more patient and less Type A. I honestly feel like I have less anxiety than before I was a Mom, as having children gives you much better perspective on things. You realize there are just so many things you cannot control and that is OK and sometimes even wonderful. I have also (begrudgingly) become more of a morning person.
Daphne age 5, creative, funny, sweet and a little bit shy.
I would say my #momstyle is “dressy casual.” I love to dress up and I am almost always in heels, plus I live in a warm place that lends itself well to skirts and dresses. That was honestly true before I had my daughter and is still true. I own a retail store so am frequently in front of customers, I am generally pretty dressed up every day – heels and a romper, cute shorts with a girly top, or a dress. I dressed this way before Daphne and during pregnancy and aside from the months I was at home with her at the beginning and in leggings and a breastfeeding tank every day my style has remained remarkably consistent.
