Hello! Welcome back to A Fancy Day! I’ve swept off the cobwebs, got a new look and am excited to finally be sharing with you what I’ve been working on the past couple months.
As I've expressed before I had a really hard time after my baby boy was born. It felt like a part of me was gone and I didn’t know where it was or if I wanted it back. Almost 18 months after having my baby I feel like I can look back and see that it was all just postpartum hormones and a little depression blocking my way.
I had to make an over night transition from being a student and holding a job to being a full time stay at home mom. While some do this with such grace and ease it was a real struggle for me. It was hard to find a balance between being myself and being a new mom.
One day I feel like I woke up from the fog and doing my hair and makeup became fun again. I knew I was starting to feel like myself because I was taking the time to get ready. But it was different than before, I needed quick and easy ways to wear my makeup, and I needed a “mom
wardrobe” but all of this still needed to feel like Courtney. Through one of the hardest transitions of my life, I've learned that life is lived in the small day to day moments that add up to the big moments that shape our lives.
Here I am... a year and half later, I'm feeling inspired to continue on with the blog. I thought about shutting it down because I didn't feel like this blog represented who I was. A Fancy Day has always been close to my heart and just because I've changed and different things are demanded of me doesn't mean I still can't continue being me.
So I'm blogging again along with a new YouTube channel, where I will share basic beauty videos that anyone can benefit from not just moms. I've allowed myself more creative freedom with the blog and I am so excited about the new things I have planned. Go check out the new YouTube channel and I will see you back on Wednesday!
