Blog Maternity leave is officially over. My baby girl is almost 20 weeks old and loves rocking out in her Exersaucer (think of it as an equivalent to a Sephora shopping spree but for babies) so I now get some time to type type type away.
Over the past 4 months, I've not wanted to think about the JQ Lounge. I've been having a blogger identity crisis. "No- can't write about that or else it'll be a mom blog" is pretty much all that's been popping up in my head lately.
Mommy blogger was a 4 letter word in my household.
Don't get me wrong, some of my favorite people in the world are mommy bloggers! Its just a big adjustment when you become a mom because literally your life turns into 100% about your little one.. while at the same time.. trying to remain your fun and sassy self doing the things that make you happy. Its hard to remember what it was like before. And its the same with blogging.
Now that does not mean every post is going to be about babies.. I'm still JQ from the Block who watches an embarrassing amount of Bravo TV, reads US Weekly like its the Wall Street Journal, cracks up at goofy things, won't ever give into being a Justin Bieber fan, will somehow still be a magnet for celeb sightings, will always be on the quest for the perfect bronza, will never give up a chance to grab sangria with the girls, and will learn to curb (not kill) her love of shopping and all things pretty and fabulous.
Admitting it is the first step.
