I’m Emma, 29 year old mama to Daisy and soon to be wife to Jon.
Firstly, thank you so much for visiting my blog. It’s something I’ve wanted to do for a long time now. I’ve typed a few posts before and set up a site many times, but never actually published anything. I thought that with so many other lovely blogs out there, why would anyone care what I’ve got to say?
At the moment, I use my free time to binge watch TV shows and browse Pinterest – not very constructive! I’ve come to realise that the only thing stopping me from doing what I want to do, is me. The kick I needed was a quote I read today. It was from a lovely book called Everyday Happiness, which is full of inspirational quotes; one for every day of the year. I happened to pick it up and flick through to today’s date (31st May). This couldn’t have been more fitting.
Since having Daisy, I’ve noticed that my mood can change quite quickly and the smallest of things can put a real dampener on my spirit. I’m not sure why and what exactly causes it, but I find that I can feel deflated very easily. Deflated. That’s probably the best word for it. Don’t get me wrong, I adore being a mother and Daisy is honestly the best thing that has ever happened to me, but it’s very easy to lose a little bit of who you were before becoming a mother.
The plan is to use my little space here to document our adventures as a family; a sort of online diary. Jon and I are getting married in September and we’ll finally all share the same surname. We hope to grow our family in the next few years too, bringing even more fun, love and happiness to the mix.
Here you’ll find a bit of everything… family fun, holidays, home decor, fashion, celebrations and perhaps a bit of baking (who doesn’t love a cake?!). It’s my own little sanctuary and I really hope you’ll stick around for the ride.
Welcome to Looking After Mama.
