My name is Heather and I am a 30 something mom, wife, blogger, lover of themed parties, coffee, and all thing beautiful. I am living my luxe life!
Luxury by definition means “the state of great comfort and extravagant living.” Everyone has their own version of luxury and living a luxe lifestyle. I have spent a great deal of my life wishing I had someone else’s hair, someone else’s car, someone else’s purse or shoes. I used to think that having nice expensive things was what mattered. I dreamed of living a luxe life.
I am happy with myself and who I am becoming every day. I don’t look in the mirror and wish I were someone else. I am happy to see me staring back. Some young girls and woman wish they had a different hair color, eye color, wish their waist were smaller and their breasts bigger. I used to be one of these woman. It has taken me a very long time to be happy with my physical appearance and some never get there. To find peace and comfort within myself and love the woman I am is an incredible luxury.
At 26 years old I found myself to be a single mom. For a very long time I felt sorry for myself and my situation. I looked at all I was missing and all I had envisioned for my life. None of it had come true. Once I started to change my thinking my vision for my life changed. I have the most incredible little boy who I love more than anything and at times it is a struggle but being Gavin’s momma is my greatest luxury.
When I started to think about my life and where I have been, where I am now and where I see my future I started to rethink all the luxuries I wanted, the ones I missed out on, and the ones I wanted in my future. It was in that moment that the word luxury started to take on a different meaning to me and gave me a different vision for my life and the life for my son. I now find luxuries to be moments spent with family and friends, the loving moments spent in my hubby’s arms and in the things I create when I allow myself the luxury of alone time. Once the meaning of the word changed in my mind I started to find luxuries in even the smallest things. In these moments I realized that I am living a luxe life and Mommy’s Luxe Life was born.
Mommy’s Luxe Life is about all of the things I find to be luxuries from the phone calls with my mom and sisters about everyday life, face timing with my brother and sister-in-law, the great new book I will make time to read, the amazing new wine I find while spending a weekend away with my hubby, the DIY’s I create, the incredible meals I make, the lessons I learn about being a mom, a friend, and a woman. All the moments that make up Mommy’s Luxe Life. I have learned that it’s the moments that make a luxe life.
