New Beginnings

Being a mom has really made me think about who I am as a person and what want in life. I’ve definitely become more sentimental and in touch with my feelings, which I’m viewing as another plus to motherhood. I’m just a big ol ball of emotion – in a good way – and I’m embracing it in all its strange glory! For example, the other night I put Basil down for bed and decided I needed to look at pictures of him. Why, you might ask? Well, because I missed him of course. Was he approximately 3 feet away from me and in view? Absolutely. Did I cry a little cause he’s the cutest baby ever (I may be slightly biased)? You betcha! Strange, right?

Proof that Basil is, in fact, the cutest baby ever.

I’m not sure if I’ve got some serious mom-brain going on, or if I’m evolving and preparing for this new chapter, but I love everything about my life. I love everyone around me, I love that I get to spend my days at home with Basil, and I love that I live somewhere so beautiful! I just feel so lucky.

I don’t regret anything I’ve done in life other than that I wish I would have realized sooner that I can do what makes me happy and not feel guilty about it. The day I decided to move with the love of my life was the best step I could have taken for a better and happier future for myself. Oftentimes I do miss my old life, but the past is in the past for a reason, and I’m all about the present and the future.

I’m not religious, but I do think things happen for a reason. I think I needed something new and important in my life and that’s why Michael and I happened to re-meet each other after 6 years – thank you cheap beer and Snapchat! I think that I needed a reason to keep bettering myself and that’s why I was lucky enough to carry our baby and now live this amazing life with him.

So, who am I now? I’m still Izzy; I’m just the mother of a beautiful baby boy. I’m fiancé to the most amazing man I’ve ever met. I’m finally happy! I’ve always wanted to be able to honestly say that I’m happy, and now I can! I’ve never been someone that can just do what I want for me, but I’m learning that I can do that sometimes, and it can even be good for my family (happy wife = happy life, eh?).

So, if this new stage in my life makes me a sentimental ball of emotion, bring it on! I’m ready to take on whatever life throws at me and I couldn’t be more excited to see what the future holds for me and my little family!
