Find Your Happy Healthy Mom Place

I remember feeling like I just didn’t know where I fit as a brand new mom. Everyone who came over would say the same thing…”Isn’t being a mom just the greatest thing you ever did?” And while I agreed with them, I also couldn’t shake the feeling of being an imposter.

I felt like a stranger in my own skin. I’d look in the mirror and see a body that didn’t look like it used to and that I wasn’t sure was ever really going to feel like mine again.

I’ve always loved baking sweets and treats for the ones I love. (Seriously, ask my hubby. I used to mail him boxes of cookies when we were dating and living 6 hours apart.)
