LIFE & COLOR ROAD TRIP: THE RECAP

December 21, 2021 4 min read

We started our Life & Color Road Trip to meet moms all over the country and share their journeys with you. Now, it’s time to catch up with some of the mamas & chat all things gratefulness and goals for the New Year.

 

We first featured Adabelle (@adabellebuntrock) in April – her second baby, Elena, had just been born in February. She was balancing being mom to a newborn while also raising her 2-year-old boy Noah with her husband.

What are you most grateful for?
This year, I was able to quit my full-time job and pursue content creation/blogging full time. This has allowed me to be more flexible with my time and be able to be at home with my kids. I am grateful for being able to pursue my passion and get more time together with my children.

What are your wishes going into the new year?
For the new year, I am wishing for continued success for my blog as well as having a healthy family especially during these times.

 

Latina content creator, Nany (@nany), gave birth to her second baby boy, Leo, in July. We chatted with her in May in the midst of her last trimester.
 

What are you most grateful for?
I'm definitely most grateful for my little family and our health- and of course, for our new little family member Leo, who is now 5 months old!

What are your wishes going into the new year?
To stay healthy. If the past two years have taught us anything, it is that health is everything.

 

In June, we caught up with doctor, mom & blogger Oma (@fearlesslyoma) as she was about to give birth to her second – a big brother to daughter Muna.
 

What are you most grateful for?
This year, and like most years, I am most grateful for family. I am grateful to God for keeping us close, expanding our hearts and allowing our love to grow.

What are your wishes going into the new year?
My wish for the new year is continued wisdom and endurance in motherhood. I believe this will help me to be fully present and available to continue to affirm and pour into my children.

 

Meghan ( @megsalfonso725), a CEO, stepmom & wife, gave birth to baby boy Pearce in November. We last chatted with her in July about her IVF journey.
 

What are you most grateful for?
I am most grateful for our beautiful healthy baby boy that arrived on November 14. I was able to have the delivery I wanted, which was vaginally, and it went as smoothly as I pictured. I am recovering and our family is over the moon with the new addition to our family. So many people have been sending us well wishes. It has been so great to see how a baby can bring out so much love from others.

What are your wishes going into the new year?
I wish for my son to know how much he is loved by not just his parents but by so many friends and family. He is going to do great things and I can’t wait to watch him accomplish all of his goals.

 

SoCal mama, Kay-Dee ( @fortheloveofmila), gave birth to baby girl June at the start of summer, and we caught up with her in August to chat postpartum life & being a mom of two.
 

What are you most grateful for?
Without question I’m most grateful for my family and the season of life we are in. Even though this season of being parents to little ones is hard and exhausting and a lot of times I feel like I am stuck in a constant loop of cleaning, I know that these days we’re living in right now…these are the best days of our lives. These are the days we will forever long for and every single day there is a moment where that realization hits me hard and I couldn’t be more grateful for a happy, healthy family.

What are your wishes going into the New Year?
Now that our youngest is 5 months old I am starting to find somewhat of a groove and am hoping that soon I will be able to be as active work-wise as I was before. I love being a mom more than anything, but I also love what I do and I love creating so I just am hoping for more of that!

 

In September, we caught up with mom of two girls & lifestyle blogger, Andrea ( @andrea.coonrod). She has another little girl on the way due any day now!
 

What are you most grateful for?
My family’s health and smiling faces through all of these crazy times!

What are your wishes going into the new year?
That everyone can find compassion towards others and that my girls take on being big sisters like rockstars!
