Back In The Groove
I think one of the hardest things about postpartum is getting yourself back in the groove when nothing is the same. Your old groove said, "smell yah later and don't let the door hit you on the way out." There's virtually no way that things could ever be the exact way they were before. As parts of my body have been returning to their former positions I'm feeling more myself everyday. I've definitely found my 'new normal' and I wouldn't trade it for anything in the world!
Everyone's recovery from childbirth is different and I think that we all have certain things that make us feel like ourselves again. I've found that I need to have human interaction, a gym routine and be able to express myself through my wardrobe. I get so much joy out of being around people whether it's at the gym, church, the grocery store or just a little coffee shop. I have to have that interaction for my mental health and to keep my spirits up. My in-laws once told me to try having the baby adjust to our lives, instead of us changing everything about our lives to adjust to them (within reason, of course). I knew that I didn't want to lose my identity while figuring out how she works into everything. So far finding our balance has been wonderful for us!
I've always enjoyed shopping like the next person and having something new makes me feel rejuvenated -- and even more so when adjusting to the post mom-bod. Ha! With the weather having warmed up, I'd taken a hard look at my Spring wardrobe and it needed serious freshening up. I wanted to be able to find something that resonated with my edgier side but still said, "I'm a mom, don't whistle at me." Pink Blush is so on point with their current Spring selection so I did what any girl would do and I said "yes," to the tank! I love the stretch and flow of this material as well as the subtle acid wash. The lace-up back just really sealed the deal and I'm back to beefing up my Spring collection one Pink Blush item at a time! I think Audrey approves of the tank, too.
