WHAT CREATIVITY MEANS TO ME

As I recently shared here, I’ve finally started to get back into painting for the first time since having Naiya and it feels so liberating. I don’t think I realized how important it is to have this creative outlet that allows me to completely decompress until I became a mom.  New mom life is so rewarding but it can also be beyond draining! Painting has become my secret sauce for true relaxation and I’ve  greatly enjoyed infusing it back into my life at least once a week. Sharing what creativity means to me today along with some recent creative mother-daughter moments with Naiya and I below.

HOW TO BALANCE BEING MULTI-PASSIONATE

Last week, I finally had the chance to paint for the first time since Naiya was born. It was only for about an hour but I walked away feeling like I found a little piece of my pre-baby self again.  It made me realize just how much my life has chanced since becoming a mom and how much harder it’s been to give my creative passions as much attention as I’d like.  Between mom-ing hard, commuting to work and #girlbossing, I barely have enough time to breathe, let alone create. This has been driving me crazy!
