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!
During the first few years of our relationship, Phil and I bonded over many things–but especially our love for travel. When we first met, I had already lived abroad in Europe for a semester in college; he had never ventured further than Canada but couldn’t wait to explore.
