Hello Beautiful Bear was started on a whim after a cup of coffee and a huge slice of chocolate cake with a new friend.
As a first-time, twenty-something mama surviving on tiny snippets of semi-conscious sleep, embracing motherhood and the joy of meeting our gorgeous baby girl and trying to crack the secrets of (a) breast/formula-feeding a very hungry sproglet, (b) getting dressed before 4pm and (c) learning to do practically everything whilst juggling a baby in my arms, I was given oodles of down-to-earth advice, tips and reassurance by a wonderful woman who’d been there, done that and got the milk-stained t-shirt.
I left feeling empowered, inspired and amazingly relaxed and that evening, I poured my heart and soul in to my first ever blog post and Hello Beautiful Bear was born.
This is our little corner of the internet where I share our stories and photographs as a virtual memory box for our daughter. Like most of us, I am completely head-over-heels besotted with her and I talk about her constantly. I also talk about motherhood – the good, the bad and the ugly – and I truly hope you come away feeling the way I did that day.
