I’m Christine and this is my lifestyle blog where I love sharing anything and everything from our day to day life. I am a mama to two earthside babes, Luca (born feb 2020) and Elora (born oct 2020), and three babies now in heaven including our son, Liam born and died in November 2019.
My early motherhood months back in 2018 inspired me to begin on my blogging journey, it blossomed out of a need and desire for me to connect with and relate to other new moms. I felt alone and isolated, I was battling PPA and PPD, but once I started connecting with other moms and sharing truthfully about how it was really going, my whole perspective changed and I decided I started building this community.
Then when we lost Liam in 2019 I became part of a club I never wanted to be in and I acquired a voice and a mission I also never wanted. I talk a lot about baby loss and mental health and I will never stop talking about it because the more we talk about it and normalize these feelings, the closer we get to breaking the stigma. Which is something loss moms desperately need.
On my blog you’ll find real, relatable motherhood content including maternal mental health posts, baby loss resources, baby/toddler and new mom product favorites, plus a bit of style, beauty, home and gardening. Gardening has truly become a form of therapy for me over the last year since losing Liam and going through a global pandemic. I am extra happy to connect with fellow garden lovers on here!
Fun info: My family owns a farm and apple orchard here in NY which, before I became a mom , was my entire life. I ran the farm store for eight years and fell in love with it; I joke that the store was my first “baby.” Needless to say, I learned a ton about farming/growing food which is where most of my gardening knowledge comes from but I am also certified by the New York Botanical Gardens through their continuing education program!
I hope you have fun here and enjoy my ramblings, my goal is that maybe you’ll feel a little less alone, a little more inspired and maybe learn a thing or two! Heck, I’m hoping it does the same for me!
