Today I am talking about that little bit of time for yourself..
I’ve always been a very social person, feeling at best in the middle of people, with my friends, attending events, dinner parties, clubs, late evenings. When I became a mother, this naturally changed. I still love my social life, as hard to organise as it sounds, but still possible.. Now, I also started to really enjoy those rare moments with myself.
I treasure every moment with Emma and besides blogging, the past year I’ve been a full time mom (Emma will start daycare three days a week in September) but recharging my batteries and especially refreshing my spirit by taking some time to myself on a regular basis was the key.
One of my favourite things to do by myself is to try out new coffee spots in the city (this is HALTE 3) while Emma spends some time with her father and I spend time with me, myself and I..
Of course this time is counted by the minute so a good cappuccino in a beautiful cafe and some well deserved ‘silence’ is all I need. Actually, what I also need is a good bunch of pretty accessories with me.. and my new Timex watch is perfect to scan those precious moments and make sure I am home in time to see Emma’s smiling face when she sees me coming back.
I chose a man watch model because I really like the tan colour of the strap at the moment, the big size and I love to wear it with contrasting feminine jewellery.
Till the next cappuccino then.. my little tip of the day, if you are a mother or you are planning to be one day.. while you are enjoying the blessing of motherhood, never forget the time for yourself!
