As a new mom, I found myself struggling to balance it all . . . wife, mother, and career. I just kept thinking that I had to “find a balance” to make all of this work and to still remain me. So the journey has begun. With a year of motherhood under my belt, and a schedule as crazy as ever, I am ready to begin pursuing a long time goal . . . starting my own blog. Yes, to many that might not seem like a big deal, but to me, having one place to get as creative as I want, talk about products I love, and things I am passionate about, is the best way I can think of to finally have an expressive space that is all my own. Besides being a mother (my most important job), I am a creative assistant by day, working for a company, doing ads, marketing, visual display, buying . . . the list goes on and on. Although this might sound great, and it is very interesting, I needed an outlet for everything else creative that is constantly reeling in my brain, followed by the little voice that is constantly telling me to “do something about it!” With all that being said, the idea for the name of this blog “love and foster,” means to love life and foster creativity. Friends, family, and strangers thanks for the support. I hope you enjoy what I have to say.
