This little blog is two years old today! When I contemplated whether a blog celebrates an anniversary or a birthday, I decided that this blog on motherhood definitely celebrates a birthday. “Life with Levi” was born just shy of four months after I gave birth, during a time when I was frantically trying to find my way as a new mom. In many ways, I was trying to find my way back to my pre-baby self, and as all moms know (or will come to realize), that is impossible, and it is supposed to be that way. In one of many foggy moments spent scouring the internet for information on motherhood that would make me feel less alone, I came across Kristen Hedges’ blog, milk & moonlight. I wrote about that relief-filled moment of connection–of being able to relate deeply to her words. Her writing speaks straight to the confused, conflicted, but joy-filled (mostly) mommy heart.
Birthdays, of course, involve presents (yay!), and the birthday of this blog is no different. Since I cannot give this inanimate, online space a gift, I am giving a copy of Kristen Hedges book, Mama, Bare: The Birth of Mother, to one of you reading this post:)
