Confession: I kind of wanted to post this picture on my blog or Instagram a few days ago (when the picture was taken), but I chickened out because even though I think it’s a beautiful picture, I don’t see it as ‘blog beautiful’, if that makes sense. But, when I saw this linkup, I knew I had to share it.
Because this is what my world now looks like. This picture was taken after a long day of entertaining visitors in our home. As soon as guests leave, I tend to strip down to the bare minimum. I don’t always wear clothes, my hair isn’t done and my makeup isn’t on, I can’t leave the house as easily as I’d like to – so the couch is my resting place of choice for the majority of my time, and I have a mini-human who depends on me to be a constant milk machine. Speaking of the mini-human, we don’t always dress her, so she just hangs out in her diaper unless we have a reason to put her in an adorable newborn-sized outfit.
But I find this life to be beautiful, even if it’s not always convenient or fun. Another person depends on me for all of her needs, and that in itself is mind-blowing for me. Being a mom has made me feel beautiful and important in a way that I’ve never felt before.
