January 19, 2016 in I Adore Mom Life, I Adore What I Love

I am still the same person I always was but over this past year, my life has changed tremendously! For one, I’m a mom now! And I adore every aspect of the job.  Yes, I do consider it a job, but the best job in the whole wide world. Some days are AMAZING and some days are tough, but no matter what, there’s something to be said about looking at your child’s face and melting… because that’s what I do 24/7. MELT.

Given that I Adore What I Love has finally made it’s comeback, I want you to be the first to know that all your favorite things about it are not going anywhere.  I am still just a blogger blogging about what I love and adore. Whether that be my favorite sunglasses, all the makeup, my obsession with the newest app on the market, the best gifts for your bff’s bday, what I’m making in the kitchen, or the things that I’m doing on a daily basis.  These elements of the blog are here to stay. OBVS!

But there’s a huge aspect of my blog that’s going to be new for you and me. I AM A MOM NOW. And I am going to incorporate all things baby into my everyday posts. If you’re into that, you’re welcome. If you’re not, just skip over those posts! No biggie. 

Check out Brody’s monthly pics that I’ve taken over the past year. If you follow me on Instagram (@danaivy), you’ve already seen them but there’s a different perspective when you look at them side-by-side. I mean, seriously, who doesn’t love baby pictures?!?!?!

I Adore What I Love - I Adore Mom Life - 12 Months of Brody {months 1-12: the changes that are capable of happening in a year amaze me}

And one more thing: not sure if you’ve already noticed this or not but the blog has an updated look to it. One of the major changes is that there is now a stationed top navigation bar that showcases the blog menu. On the menu, you’ll find a new section entitled I Adore Mom Life – click there for everything having to do with #momlife! {Pretty straight forward, no?} This will be the first post in that area but stay tuned, because I have some amazing I Adore Mom Life content coming soon!
