One year exactly since I sat down at this laptop and published my first blog post here in Whoa, Mamma Land. An anniversary I share with the sinking of the Titanic, which is quite fitting really.
One year ago today I was sinking. Happy on the outside but drowning, wallowing deep inside. Emotionally I'd hit rock bottom. I was a stay-at-home mamma, devoted to my 3 darling kids and my darling Mr WhoaMamma, full of love, but still empty inside.
I had forgotten to devote some of that awesome Mamma-lovin' to My Self.
But, one fabulous, sparkly, shimmery year on, this Mamma's certainly turned her Woes into Whoa's!
All because of this teeny weeny little blog and a community of Oh-So-Fabulous-and-Inspiring readers!
I'm still a stay at home mamma.
I'm still devoted to my spirited little girls.
I still swoon over the ravishing Mr Whoa Mamma.
But I'm no longer empty inside.
Today is the eve of Greek Orthodox Easter. Which is fitting, because it's all about Resurrection and Re-Birth. I'm typing this inbetween baking batches of cookies with my girls and preparing for our big family feast tomorrow. This Mamma feels like she has been resurrected and re-born. It's amazing what a little Self-Love can do.
This is my little piece of Heaven.
A wonderful world where I'm more than just a wife, mother, sister, daughter.
Casa de Whoa Mamma: my cosy little home where you're Welcome ALL the time!
