A New Love

I love, love. I understand what love means, how to walk in love, and how to speak lovingly.  When I met my husband, I learned about a new love. I have never loved someone so much before, and getting married "sealed" our love. My husband knows all there is about me, and loves me anyways.

When my daughter was born almost 5 months ago, I learned about another love. [I really started learning about it the second I found out I was  pregnant]. The moment we heard her cry for the very first time, I'll never forget. This little person has completely changed our lives. I'm still awestruck that she is mine. She was part of me for 9 months. I felt her kicks, punches, and hiccups. I would daydream about what she might look like, and worry about things I had no control over.

Love is one of those emotions that can take you on a roller coaster. It will make you cry tears of happiness, but also sadness. It can make you scream with joy, and in anger. It can make you say things you need to, but also say nothing when needed.

My love towards my daughter makes me so excited to see her grow up, but also sad that she's growing so fast. I get so proud about all her little milestones, like rolling over, that I reminisce about how just a couple months ago, I still had to support her head.

As a new mom, I didn't expect how many times throughout the day that I would look at my baby and think "I can't believe you're mine". I am so blessed to be M's mama.

This new love has made my heart full. I didn't know what I was missing.

Review - Suzanne - Trusst Lingerie

I love this bra! One sentence isn't enough to sum up how great this bra is, but in all honesty, it's that good. While at Curvy Con earlier this month, as a platinum ticket holder, I was given a Trusst bra. With what I know now, I feel like that would've been enough to be the only incentive for being a platinum ticket holder. Suzanne ($88) Jessica ($98) Marjory ($82) I'm not sure about other women, but I have a hard time finding a bra that really supports me, and is also comfortable. With this Suzanne bra, I don't feel like I have to take it off the second I get home! I'm completely comfortable wearing it 12+ hours a day. On top of that, even after the 12 hours, it is still as supportive as when I first put it on! The straps don't dig in to my shoulders, the band fits comfortably, and the padding isn't overwhelming (Do you ever put on

4moms - Spout Cover

I just got this in the mail! I can't wait to try it out soon. I'll update this post once I get it all set-up. **UPDATE** I love this product! I'm definitely one of those people that love super hot showers/baths, and when I think something is cold, others  might think it's hot. This temperature spout cover is a lifesaver! I don't have to worry about the water being too hot when I make my baby girl's bath. It's easy to install (and you only need a couple batteries), and crazy easy to understand. If the water is too hot, it start beeping loudly and the screen starts flashing red. The screens give you an exact reading of the temperature too. I know 4Moms makes an actual baby tub as well, but I opted for the spout because I had a baby tub already (I love hand-me-downs!). I highly recommend this product for all moms, but especially those of us that can handle heat a bit too well. :) Blue: When you first turn the unit on, and when the

Review - StorkSak Travel Duffle Bag

This is the weekend bag that tops all other weekend bags. I've used this bag on flights, train rides, and road trips, and I'm still amazed at how much I can fit into it. It keeps everything nice an organized too, which I  love! I was not able to fit it in the overhead bin on the airplane I was on (it was a smaller plane), but it fit perfectly under the seat in front of me. It fit great in the overhead storage on my Amtrak train as well. It is so versatile too. The hanging organizer was a lifesaver on my last trip to NYC. I was sharing a room with two other girls, and there wasn't a ton of counter space in the bathroom. I was able to hang the organizer on one of the towel racks to keep all my toiletries together and out of the way! You can tell right away that this duffle was made with quality and for durability. The leather trim accents are beautiful. StorkSak even included straps on outside of the bag to hold your jacket! They made sure to create a trave
