After a whole lot of contemplation I came back to how deeply I feel about putting my family first. Continue reading “The Struggle Is Real, But It’s Worth It”

The Date Night In by Date Crate Australia

What does the Date Night In mean? For me as a mother, before I found Date Crate Australia, I never worried about getting a date night in with my hubby. I focused on our family unit and never wondered what that time alone would actually be like. We were getting some time alone. And up until recently it was enough. Truly, I did used to think it was enough. But from the very first Date Crate box that I got to surprise my hubby with everything changed. Continue reading “The Date Night In by Date Crate Australia”

Yarrawonga – Life by the Lake

We love our little family holidays. So far we have kept to short stays in places we can drive to. We’ve been fortunate to have taken our dogs a few times as well. This time as they are both no longer with us anymore it was very different. Our recent stay at the Yarrawonga-Mulwala Big 4 Holiday Park was the first short getaway without them in our lives. But it was still amazing. Visiting places in the Murray Region always helps us to be at peace with Continue reading “Yarrawonga – Life by the Lake”

Finding Myself Again After Becoming a Mother

finding myself, motherhood

During my childhood and adolescent years I was surrounded by a lot of stronger personalities. I was the youngest of a large family. Our cultural background encouraged girls to have a calm and ladylike demeanor. Therefore my upbringing instigated a foundation for a timid and shy personality. I never actively tried finding myself and it didn’t occur until my late 20s. I was single with no prospects of the future I always dreamed of. But one day I woke up to Continue reading “Finding Myself Again After Becoming a Mother”

Shine Bright Mama Project – Friday Feature with Curvy Mummy

self-care

Self-care is something that is so easily put aside by women and the focus is rather set on their maternal instinct to care for others. I myself let this happen when I became a mother. How about you? I never thought about turning to others for guidance or just to point me in the direction of somewhere where I could learn about looking after myself. I tried making a new beginning of self-care when I had my second boy. But in doing it on my own I found myself trying to fit it in with everything else. When I came across Lisa Godlee’s Shine Bright Mama Project on Instagram I started learning so much more. One of the most important points I am now aware of is the importance of putting me first. I now Continue reading “Shine Bright Mama Project – Friday Feature with Curvy Mummy”

The past week has been one where I wish I could’ve changed so much. My mood has been awful. I have the determination to succeed still. But I’m not implementing it. My will to continue with this fitness journey is there but only just hanging by a thread. So what about motivation? It’s there, but certainly not as much as I know I need it to be. I’m questioning myself, can I really do this? I’m not proud to tell you right now that I’m experiencing a strong sense of self-doubt. Continue reading “Questioning Myself, Can I Really Do This?”

How Was Your Day Love?

how was your day, family life

Living as a one income family has its perks and perils. There was a time where it was the norm for the husband to be the sole bread winner. I remember the days where it was expected for a woman to be a housewife. Women stayed home to care for their babies and to be there when their older children arrived from school. Housewives have been portrayed in the media as pretty and well-groomed in the past. They always had perfect manners and greeted their husbands with; How was your day love? I mostly remember this in films such as Bewitched and Happy Days. Yes those are really old films but I loved Continue reading “How Was Your Day Love?”
