Working Mama

Before I became a Mum I had adult conversations daily with ease, felt put together, confident and I didn’t feel like I was going to forget everything. I’m currently finding my new normal as a working Mama and life is so full on right now but I’m trying my best to keep it simple.

Lets start with why

For as long as I can remember I’ve enjoyed writing. But it’s something I’ve never really made time for. I’ve always felt too busy and often the things I let slip, are the things that bring me the most joy. When I write I wind up absorbed by my emotions, completely lost in the moment.
