Hi. I’m Leah, and I am far from perfect. But then again, aren’t we all? And isn’t that what makes each of us unique? In my own life, I have found that I spend way too much time worrying about what others think and trying to live up to some ideal that I will never reach. I have a career, but don’t look the part of a polished career woman. I am a mom, but sometimes say the wrong thing or don’t do the ‘mom-like’ thing. I don’t wear mom-jeans (are those still a thing?) and even though I like to bake, I seldom have time for it and have accepted that I bring store-bought cookies to community events. I’d love to impress the world with my hand-crafted and lovingly-made gifts and goodies, but sometimes I just need to keep my sanity. And sometimes that means sipping a glass of wine and watching the Hallmark Channel instead of rolling out dough to make individually-decorated gingerbread cookies at 10 p.m. I love my son and know that in order to be the best I can for him, I need to take care of myself. Yes, that is easier said than done. I am a work in progress. Join me on the journey to being more forgiving and nurturing toward myself, while also being the best mommy and wife I can be.
This is a (*judgment-free) space where we, as moms, can celebrate our uniqueness and imperfections. And where I promise to share (some) photos that haven’t been photoshopped and openly declare daily victory even when the house is still a mess. It’s a harsh world. Let’s be kind to ourselves, and each other.
