Seek The Simplicity

Because sometimes just meeting up downtown with some friends is all you need to feel like yourself again. Or maybe just a spur of the moment photo shoot postpartum is enough to make you feel alive.

Motherhood is tough–probably the hardest job there is out there. And being home with babies or toddlers all day can drive you a bit nuts sometimes. Yesterday, I had some much-needed “me/mommy time” and it felt great.

This “me time” mostly consisted of me drinking coffee and listening to my colleagues complain about work while I grinned in silence because I’m on leave, but hey, stop judging. It was our fun.

For me, it was having time to myself, but for them, it was a way to finally interact with someone, given that our job is very isolating (teaching online).

The point of this blog post really is that, “me time” is important. OK, the real point of this blog post is to show you these awesome photos because what else am I supposed to do with them? Haha.

Whether you’re a SAHM, WAHM, Working mom, it’s important to have a moment to just do things by yourself or meet up with friends without the kiddos.

It’s been almost a month since I had our third child and I’m learning that there is a moment for everything.

Be content in the season you’re in and seek the simplicity in life.

Mommy Time

As a mother and a wife, I am mostly occupied throughout the day with taking care of my baby, spending time with The Hubz, and handling household responsibilities. Mothers are always busy doing something! So, any chance I get to just have one hour to myself and unwind, I jump at the opportunity!

Every now and then it’s okay and important to just have some time to yourself.

I had an interview downtown this morning, so after the interview I had the chance to check out Lola Coffee Bar. It was so good to just sit there and relax that I didn’t want to leave!

I enjoyed some great coffee, a delicious chocolate croissant, and a good book!
That’s what I like to do with my “mommy time “.  Sit in a great cafe and read or write!

Mamas, how do you enjoy your “mommy time?”
