Devoted wife (lucky fella) and gorgeous mother to the cutest little lady Moriah. Currently holds the title of #SAHM (stay at home mum) but pre #SAHM you could’ve found her in HR. Work aside, additional titles include youth group enthusiast and passionate music leader. All in all Leah wouldn’t have it any other way, life is GOOOOOD!
Dream. As soon as I saw this I started to think about the dreams and goals I have for my daughter as opposed to for myself which has never happened before (obviously). I guess my biggest dream is to see my daughter happy, to be an awesome contributor to society and be a radical Jesus-follower! My dream for my little family is that no matter what we have or don’t have we’ll be happy together – whatever that looks like! Goals for myself? To be the best I can be – a mummy that my children and husband will be proud of! Another goal would also be, I guess, not to lose myself to the “mummy label” I still want to be able to do what I love; writing, singing, performing, creating and be a mummy all in one.
Define. Wow…cliché I know but becoming a mum would definitely be at the top of the list! I never saw myself as a “mummy” person – an Aunty? Of course! I love being an Aunty but it was hard to see myself actually being a mum! When I was pregnant people would say to me “it just kicks in” but I always used to think “but how does that happen?” but they were SO right! As soon as Moriah arrived I just switched into Mummy mode and it’s been the most challenging, beautiful experience of my life. Getting married was pretty huge too! (Not leaving you out babe!) When life is no longer all about YOU and you are part of a pair, starting your own family “leaving the nest” is a huge deal and it was the best decision I ever made!
Style. If there was anyone I draw my style from it would definitely be (don’t hate me) Kimmy K! She may have her questionable moments but her style in the past 3-4 years is perfection! I think that may have been the biggest gift Kanye gave her (besides their gorgeous kids of course) but the neutrals, high-waisted everything, tight fitting dresses/two pieces, trench coats, ripped jeans and heels is LIFE! I was pregnant at the same time as her so I was constantly stealing and recreating looks from her! My post baby bod doesn’t quite allow me to pull off the Kimmy K wardrobe at the moment (I’m working on it!). Right now I’m loving flowy tops and the three pairs of jeans I can fit, you’ll also find me in a lot of active wear to try and motivate myself to exercise (happens 70% of the time).
Takeaway. “What you think, you will become. What you feel, you will attract. What you imagine, you will create.”
Ain’t nothing but a whole lot of contentment in this and can she not be so beautiful inside and out!?
