Finding Magic in Motherhood: Realizing Your Identity

This week’s feature is from Anndrea Boren, owner of Peaches to Poppies – a San Diego based wedding coordination and styling service. Anndrea is not only a dear friend of mine, but also a wearer of many hats: she is a wife/mother/florist/event planner/stylist/houseplant connoisseur/Jill of all trades! We met while both working at BHLDN (a wedding line by Anthropologie) in 2016 and became fast friends. She was a mentor to me throughout my first pregnancy + during the early months of motherhood, and has given me wise and sound advice on marriage over the last two years! I asked her if she would share some of her wisdom on finding your identity outside marriage + motherhood for my readers, and ya’ll…we’re in for a treat!

Go-to coffee order: “a decaf latte with no sweeteners!”

Favorite indulgence: “probably french fries!!! Especially truffle fries, YUM. Like seriously, I can eat them anytime and they make me so happy.”

Favorite thing to cook: “I cook a lot of Mexican food! I feel mostly confident to say I have ‘mastered’ Spanish Rice. It took me years, and now it turns out right almost every time!”

Thank you Anndrea for being a part of our Real-Girls: Wives community! Finding magic in the midst of motherhood + marriage is something  we are all doing, together. Read below for Anndrea’s essay on Realizing Your Identity! Xo, Becca Continue reading
