HOW HAS BECOMING A MOM CHANGED YOU? I didn't know I wanted to be a mom until I was a mom. It has forced me to step outside my comfort zone in all aspects. I'm not an overly affectionate person but something just clicked with my dudes. They made it so easy to love on them and give them that safe space in me.
HOW DO YOU STAY CONNECTED WITH YOURSELF AND MAINTAIN WHILE ROCKING THE MOM-LIFE? I do yoga most days, I cook or bake something new practically every day and I take time outs. I know my limits and I know I can't function if I'm not practicing self care.
WHAT IS YOUR MOM UNIFORM? 98% black and gray if I'm being honest. I love a good pair of jeans and I'm obsessed with overalls right now.
WHAT HAS BEEN THE BEST PIECE OF ADVICE YOU’VE RECEIVED? "The days are long but the years are short." I struggled with PPD after my oldest son was born. It was the lowest point of my life and it didn't full come to a head until he was 6 months old. Someone randomly said that quote to me and a lightbulb clicked on. Flash forward 4 years and 2 more kids later and it is the truest statement I've ever been able to tell anyone about parenthood.
WHAT IS IN YOUR BAG? A million lipsticks, wallet, a pocket knife from my grandfather, IAMM sunnies, Aziz Ansari's Modern Romance, a lavender salve, lactation tea, and a bunch of tiny toys for the dudes in my life.
BEYONCE OR LAURYN HILL? I love some Bey but I have to go with Lauryn Hill. She has captivated my soul since I was 10 years old. I have seen her twice and I would pay any obscene amount of money to do it again. Listening to To Zion will bring me to tears at any given moment and not many artists can do that for me.
WHAT SONG ARE YOU LISTENING TO ON REPEAT? I've been going back and forth between Aphasia by Pinegrove and Solo by Frank Ocean.
CELEBRITY CLOSET YOU WANT TO RAID: Gwen Stefani, hands down. She has been my idol as long as I can remember and her style is just so real.
