And in that moment, I realized that the title of “mamanista” doesn’t fully express what I want this blog or my parenting to be about. It is not about the marriage of fashion and motherhood, but so much more than that!
Becoming a mother and figuring out what works best for you and your family is a “project” within itself. Then there are daily factors such as career, hobbies (fashion), activities (shopping), to add to the equation. Being able to master balancing it all is truly an art within itself.
Therefore, I am more than just a “mamanista”. This blog is about me. About who I am. About the challenges I will face, the ups and down in life, and my passions. It is about my love of fashion, of my husband, of my son. About how I want to grow as a woman, a wife, and a mother. About the values with which I want to live my life. And of course, my striving for perfection in all I do, even though I know perfection is unattainable.
So yes, I have expanded my horizons. It is quite amazing how some alone time and some inspirational, fashion related television can put things into perspective. So yes, dear Diary, I think that PROJECT: MOTHERHOOD says it all!
