Who & What Inspired Me To Take the Plunge…

I have been thinking about starting a blog for while now, actually years but I always seemed to find an excuse. I have no time, life is too hectic; I like to spend all my free time with Max when I am not working; I’m in school again- there is no way I can do both; I’m pregnant; Esme was just born and now Max is home for the summer with me; and the list goes ON. And then, I started to build a relationship with someone I knew for a while from afar. Most people know her as Geri the photographer but I know her as Gera, one of the most selfless, thoughtful and clumsy people on this planet, lol. And all of a sudden I was so utterly inspired, to the point where I had so many ideas I didn’t know where to start – I still kind of don’t know where I am starting so bear with me here. She is an amazing street style photographer @geri_1221 with endless an endless amount of inspiration who works with all the bomb bloggers in the tristate area. She is a true definition of a SUPER WOMAN- Mom, Wife, Photographer & the list goes on.

Fast forward a few months, I ran out of excuses as to why I shouldn’t start this adventure. Life update- I am currently home with my 8 month old baby girl Esme, while Max is in school. I still can’t believe my first born started kinder this year! While there are days that I find myself with so much time on my hands there are other days where I feel like I need an extra 24 hours in the day. When I do have extra time I am repurposing furniture, making tutus, cooking, cleaning, decorating, SHOPPING and loving my husband and kids.  Mommin’ is HARD, so is being a wife, especially when I have my own set of standards. I’m 26 years old and I finally feel like I am finding myself and my purpose which isn’t so easy with all my responsibilities but I am learning to be a little selfish.  

I am so proud of myself for taking the time out of my crazy and busy life for doing something for me and simply ME. I am just another millennial mama trying to get it all right in the crazy world we live in; or at least right in my family’s eyes. So, I encourage you to join the ride with me, laugh with me, cry with me and grow with me. Because no matter what happens at the end of the day if you are learning you are growing and if you are growing you are learning. Thank you from the very bottom of my heart for reading my madness and I look forward to sharing many more significant posts with you all!

Thank you to my Gera for kick starting this fire in me, I will always be grateful to you for that.

Love your latest girlfriend,

Alessa
