Are you a morning or night person?
Morning! I actually wasn’t for the longest time but since having Ford I love my mornings. I need that little bit of me time in the morning before I start my day with him because I’m so exhausted by the end of the day that I have nothing left to give to myself for any sort of self-care. I love to get up, write in my journal, have my morning drink, and work out if I’m feeling up to it. It just really gets my day started on the right note!
Are you guys getting married still?
Yes! Unfortunately, COVID put a stop to our original wedding plans but we didn’t want to postpone like most people are. Since we have Ford it doesn’t feel right to wait another year to get married. We are ready to make our family official and maybe start adding to it!
Did you expect to have kids in your 20s?
I didn’t expect to find my person in my 20s so I definitely didn’t expect to have kids in my 20s haha I always wanted to be a young mom but for some reason just didn’t see it happening for me. I’m so glad it did though! Things always have a way of working out how they’re supposed to.
Is there anything you would do different with next baby?
I honestly can’t think of anything. I loved getting Ford on a sleep schedule and good routine from the start. The only thing I would maybe change was to try harder to nurse the next baby instead of pump. I really didn’t enjoy pumping and I think it took away from a lot of those special newborn moments with Ford. I will either try to only breastfeed or just do formula from the start!
What do you miss the most about Ford being a newborn?
I miss everything. You take so much for granted in those first few months. Everything is new and stressful and I didn’t stop and just soak it in as much as I should have. I miss him being little, I miss his little noises. I miss rocking him to sleep. I miss my baby being a baby!
How did you know you were ready to launch your shop?
I don’t think you’ll ever be 100% ready for anything in life. You just have to go for it! Tomorrow isn’t promised. I was dreaming about it for a while so I just took a leap of faith and I’m so glad I did. Opening The Donut Shop has been such an amazing experience and I’m mad at myself for not doing it sooner!
What is your dream vacation once covid is gone?
Hawaii!!!! I have been dreaming about it forever. That or Italy. We were supposed to take our honeymoon there so whenever we can head that way safely I think those are at the top of the list!
I always love answering your questions and getting to share this stuff with you guys! Hope you enjoyed this September Q+A: My Birthday. Let me know when you want another one!
