Mel is a familiar face to my blog.
Although we met online,
Mel and I now have a fun, honest, laughter filled, photo loving real life friendship.
As a duo, after much deliberation we came up with a hashtag and hope to venture into a little online world with you.
A world where motherhood is celebrated as a motivator
for creative and inspired living.
Often Motherhood is criticised and portrayed as a life sucker
for us mums due to the constant tiredness and the overwhelm we can feel.
As you will note in our (cringe worthy!) 2minute video above ,
Whether that be reconnecting with music, literature, mountain biking or cooking. We encourage it all!
The pace of this “project” is ongoing and unhurried so drop in and out as you see fit.
This is for the stay-at-home mother, the working mother, the self-employed mother and everything in between.
Sure, we know that
some days we will feel less than inspired and will want to give a big eye-roll to this project
all together but that’s why we want to create a community around this – to encourage and stand beside each other when those days (or weeks or months) of doom arrive.
So if it sounds like something you’re up for joining us in (and we hope it is!) – here’s what to do:
+ Follow us on instagram (@melwiggins & @aly.harte so we can see your pics – if you’re private & we’re not instabuds we might not see!)
+ Tag your pictures #motherhoodalive and share with us what is keeping you going these days, the stuff that is fun, silly, inspiring and bringing you life.
At the end of each month,
Mel and I are going to (with your permission) feature some snaps on our blogs
Hopefully they can motivate and inspire you for this journey.
We really hope you will join us – we can’t wait to see your pics!
