so new, yet so familiar.
and isn’t that what motherhood is…
a soul comes into our lives with such force.
such beauty.
such significance.
and in a single moment you meet.
everything changes.
yet nothing changes.
so new, yet so familiar…

32 days postpartum.
creating life, supporting life.
my body in a constant state of change.
just like it always is, and always will be.
I honor my ability to transition
and detach from what was.
instead falling in love with what is.
I am powerful in my skin.

the newborn haze ☁️ clouded mind, aching body, sleepless nights… in between the euphoria, the gratitude, the disbelief that she is mine. it’s tears and prayers and middle-of-the-night feedings. it’s introducing myself to my body yet again, day after day, in all of its changes. it’s falling in love over and over — with myself, my daughter, my partner, my family. it’s the miracle that is life and our innate ability to love someone so new, so infinitely. it’s creation and growth and heaven’s way of saying hello, i’m here. it’s the single most beautiful, fleeting feeling i’ve ever known, in all of its hard days and all of its best days.

the week before we met our daughter, we came to the water on a warm december night. we prayed, and manifested, and visualized this little soul that would soon be ours. the sky turned pink and golden as the sun went down, and I felt my daughter all around us. we didn’t know her gender then, or her name, or what day she would arrive, but every part of me could feel her. she was near.

and now, until forever, every golden sunset will remind me of her. it will bring me back to this night, with my husband and our son, listening to the waves, waiting for her…
