I was so excited about the baby and planning of the events leading up to her birth like the baby reveal and the baby shower. Every time I would feel a flutter in my stomach I would talk to my "Butterfly". Pretty soon everyone was calling her Butterfly and she wasn't even here yet.
As the months went on, I knew she was going to be something special. She was so active; Butterfly did all kinds of turns in my belly. I thought it came from all of the spicy food that I was eating and boy, did I eat my share of spicy foods.
I didn't gain a lot of weight with the pregnancy at first, only about 20 pounds. So, I felt good, but then I gained another 20 pounds and everything started to change!
Carrying that extra 20 pounds was tough, but things got even worse after the baby was born. My relationship collapsed. I didn't feel sexy anymore and my freedom was gone. I thought that I lost myself. I was a first time mom and I felt like I didn't know what the heck I was doing.
Every time I looked at my daughter I knew that I had to pull myself together, so I started meditating and journaling. I had to find my strength again. That's when I realized my strength was dressing up, but I did it on a budget.
Dressing up always made me feel good, so I decided to launch my blog The Budget Boutique to help other mothers who wanted to bounce back on a budget and feel good about who they were again. The more I planned out my outfits I knew I was on to something. Blogging brings me so much joy. It's still very new, but I feel like I've found myself again and the road ahead looks pretty damn amazing.
I hope you enjoyed this article.
Until Next Time
