TIME ✨All of a sudden, it doesn't seem as important anymore to have my daily to-do list checked off. When Amaya is awake in-between feedings or even sleeping on my chest, the world around me stops.

The dishes: They can wait.

The laundry: It can wait.

My emails: They can wait.
⭐️
Work packages: They can wait.
⭐️
Texts: They can wait.

As someone who's Type A with OCD, I always made sure that things were tidy and in order at all times. My inbox would be filed into appropriate folders and handled before bed each night and a mess in our apartment was unheard of. ⭐️
Now, this little mama is challenging me to breath and enjoy the moment more than I ever have before. It's not easy, but I finally realized, it's OK to leave things "undone" and just BE.

New favorite body care collection, @aveda Stress Fix. Have you guys tried it? 👍🏼 I’m late to the game, but the brand just gifted it to me to help with motherhood. 🙏🏼 So far, the oil is my favorite, but I can’t wait to indulge in the entire collection. The moisturizer comes in two different consistencies and bath salt is luxurious. The scent... on another level of aaahhhhh. 🌿

OUR ADOPTION PROCESS & LEARNINGS 👉🏻On the blog this week, I have a few posts up to answer all of your questions about the adoption process and team of experts who helped to make it all happen. (👆🏻Link in profile.)
🌟
I love answering all of your DMs and hope these posts answer a lot of your questions. If you're looking to adopt or know someone is, I'm more than happy to connect and share. ⭐️

YOU ARE STRONGER THAN YOU THINK. ✨ Today, as I celebrate being a mother and am beyond grateful that Amaya Jo came into our lives, I'm also yearning for the one I lost. 💫
Between the commercials, media and social media posts, the hype about Mother's Day is completely insensitive. Yes, mother's deserve to be celebrated, but many people hurt deeply on this holiday and I just want you to know that I see you.
💫
Whether you're on your way to motherhood and it hasn't been easy, lost a child or even a mother of your own, I see you. I feel your pain and I want you to know that you're not alone.
💫
As someone who's been to hell since we started trying to build a family, I can tell you that it gets better. It finally did for me. The one piece of advice I have to offer is to have faith. With hope, you will be able to build a family even if it's not exactly the way you planned. The Universe laughs when we make plans. Surrender to it and continue to have faith.
💫
You are stronger than you think and one day you’ll feel peace. *

LOVE✨ Nine years ago today, he took me on our first date. We went to Haru in NYC for sushi and saki, a martini bar for my first (dry up with olives) and then a dive bar for dancing. Oh, what a night!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
❣️⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We've been inseparable ever since and while I always loved him with all of my heart and soul, I never knew until this trying year how much I needed him, too. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
❣️⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
To say I'm lucky is an understatement. This man has brought me the greatest joys life has to offer. He's stood by me throughout my darkest days. He's the best partner in life and I'm so thrilled that we are now raising our daughter and puppy together. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
❣️⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
When people ask me how we met and I tell our story, (we've known each other since high school), I shock myself every time simply because of the fact that he was always there! You know what they say... you have to kiss a lot of frogs until you find your prince. In my case, I opened my eyes at the right time in my life to settle down.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

MOTHERHOOD ✨ Motherhood to me, I’ve come to find, is a matter of unconditional love, care and support with the intention to raise a child to thrive by living with compassion, gratitude and an eagerness to learn while seeing the world through eyes of love.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🌟⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Today on the blog, I share my journey to motherhood through pregnancy, loss, grief, adoption and joy. It's been a horribly trying year, but here I am, a mother to two daughters, Ava (my angel baby) and Amaya. My post is an honest update and reflection on where I am today. 👆🏻Link in profile.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🌟⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I also added a "Motherhood" column so you can catch up on the details of my journey to date and continue to follow my learnings and baby girl.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
