Announcement: New Weekly Series On Marriage And Motherhood

I have a big announcement! A new weekly series is starting today, over on my Instagram…

✨THIS IS HOW WE DO: MOTHERHOOD + MARRIAGE✨

We’ve all been there – you’re in the thick of it, and pick up the phone to ask your friends, call your mom, look up Bible verses, Google and search Pinterest – trying to find a clear answer to *thriving* during the daily struggles of balancing marriage, parenting, motherhood, finances, working, time management, friendships, meal prepping, cleaning, going “green”, working out, getting enough sleep….and the first thing you ask or type in is: “how do I do/say/manage/balance/get ____?” Continue reading

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
