What is Life of Leigha + why now?
I'm glad you asked. For years I have dabbled with the idea of creating a blog + space for me to express myself creatively.
See, I had a bit of a mid-life crisis in my 30th year...you know, during a wolrdwide pandemic. I found myself stuck at home, while working, with kids who needed my undivided attention and didn’t really understand that mom had a zoom meeting and couldn’t wipe their butt at a moment’s notice. Ooof. I longed for moments by myself, wine in hand, binging Netflix + enjoying the perks of sleeping in and working in my pajamas. But instead I was in a prison with two kids, two dogs + my husband gone for 24-hours during his shifts as a paramedic. I was overwhelmed.
Then, to add to my stress, I got pregnant in July 2020. So now I was hormonal + overwhelmed.
Fast forward a bit, my third son, Sebastian, is now 7 months old. I finally feel like I'm coming out of the fog of living through a pandemic, giving birth, navigating this whole work from home thing, battling perinatal + postpartum depression.
During this time of growth I decided I needed to do something for me. Something that fueled my soul. Well...welcome to my passion project.
