In 2019 I resolved to drastically reduce my waste–garbage and recycling. I first wrote about it in a blog post in March, three months into the year. Since it’s now June, I figured it’s time for another quarterly update!
This is a blog post I’ve been itching to write for a long time. I keep drafting it in my head, and then deadlines and everyday life get in the way. Oh, #momlife!
My 2019 New Year’s Resolution was to become more eco-friendly. The funny thing is that I used to be much better at this. When I was a teenager, and during my undergrad years at university, I was a hippie! Anyone who knew me during that time would attest to it: I brought my own container to restaurants for leftovers, I wore hemp clothing, and I worked at a health food store (a store that I still love and frequent).
What happened to that hippie girl? I’m not sure, to be honest. She never truly went away, but she stepped aside for a while while I took on an office job, planned a wedding, went back to school, and had a baby. Although I always prioritized natural products, I fell into the convenience trap. But now I feel like that side of me is back, full-force, and full of excitement.
Here’s something that’s been on my mind since before J was born. How much of him do I share with the world?
It’s a huge cliche to say that having a baby changes everything, and yet it’s so true. I now feel like there are two lives I’ve lived: my life before being a mom, and my life as a mom.
Welcome to my newly renovated site!
I’m way overdue for posting anything, for several reasons.
Since having my son, J, last summer, my priorities and interests have shifted. For the first few months, motherhood was all I could focus on. Those of you who have children can understand how all-consuming the newborn period is! After that, I managed to make time for my pressing deadlines, housework, and family—but still not for hobbies like blogging!
