So I’ve struggled and prayed for days over whether to share this, honestly it can be a little terrifying to share things that I know might cause people to have powerful reactions, but I feel my heart being led to share, so here goes. I read a post in a mom group the other day, and it broke my heart into shards. The thread started by a mama pouring her heart out that she didn’t know how difficult it was going to be having kids, and that basically, she’s utterly miserable.
My heart BROKE. Broke for her, broke for her kids, a miserable mama does not make for a happy home for growing little ones. This mama was not prepared for the reality of motherhood. And her and her children are paying the price.

Sponsored post, but as always, I only share things I love and give my honest opinions every time!
I have recently realized two things:
- It seems that I will be nursing indefinitely.
- My wardrobe…had become pitiful, one might even say pathetic. I have been desperately needing to revamp my closet and am THRILLED to be partnering with PinkBlush as I do so! (but like literally, anybody else still have t-shirts and leggings from high school?! Just me?! Please say it’s not just me! Haha!)

As I’ve been breastfeeding for nearly four years, I have definitely had the time to find what I do and don’t like, and the things I do really need to support myself as I nourish my children. A good bra is a non-negotiable! All three of my children have been solely breastfed and I have pumped and donated (and still do!) so it is important to me that my bra can both be used as a pumping bra and easy to use to breastfeed (ain’t no mama got time to be changing bras through the day!). Today I am featuring the Ollie Gray Everywhere Bra in The Bitsy pattern. Shop Ollie Gray Anywhere Bra and use code Olliegraybras10 for 10% off (valid until end of October)!! Read on for closeups and info!

I’ve been diligently using these tips and I can tell it is on it’s way out the door for me, and my hubby and kiddos seem to have avoided it completely. Thank God. As always, I am not a medical professional just sharing what helps me as one mama to the other so always check with your doctor first.

Before I begin, I want to say that working with Your Tea has been a most healing, incredible experience. I rarely see such genuine love and care as I have seen in their company. I have always believed in Traditional Chinese Medicine, but honestly it has been very difficult to utilize in my lifestyle. I barely have time to brush my hair most days let alone go through a series of steps to brew complicated teas. Your Tea has taken the ancient and time proven healing abilities of Traditional Chinese Medicine, modernized it and made it accessible for every type of lifestyle. A simple teabag twice a day, once in the morning and once at night. And, it’s DELICIOUS. Yes, it is. I also want to share my incredibly personal experience I had taking it, please click here to watch my video all about it and continue reading for more information about Your Tea and Traditional Chinese Medicine.
