Being a stay at home mama is one of the best and hardest things I’ve ever done. Our days are as equally as beautiful and wonderful as they are immensely challenging. Finding that balance between giving Jude everything he needs and trying to find a minute to give back to myself is probably been the biggest challenge, especially since moving away from our friends and family. For myself, nap times are sometimes the only time I get to really recharge and so I try and take every advantage during this precious time to do just that. And while I do often have to use this time to get on top of laundry or the pilled up dishes, or that pile of dust I’ve ignored too many times, I try and always incorporate something that will help me feel uplifted and refreshed.
Welcome to the new Chalk White Arrow. As you may be able to tell, a lot of changes have taken place over here. There are still tweaks to be made and a few things that need changing … At this point in time, life is seeming to take longer than I plan for, but I appreciate you all being patient with me. Starting Monday, things will be getting more consistent around here. My goal is to get at least two posts up a week and possibly increase post frequency a little as we go along. A big THANK YOU to all of you who have stuck around … to those who have remained loyal readers, who send me kind words, who have always been supportive … This blog remains because of you.
Until then, you can find me on Instagram
