In the five months since I became a mom to this girl, I've learned a lot about perspectives and priorities.

Especially now that I've returned to work, I've shifted my evening priorities away from what I did before, and I soak up my time with A before it's time for her to go to bed.

I've been writing about eco-friendly lifestyles and my own journey to living more sustainably for almost 10 straight years now. But since A was born, I've found myself feeling more writer's block and less inspired. It's understandable, of course, now that I have a living being depending on me for everything. I tried to let go of the pressure I put on myself to write blog posts. And since I was home on maternity leave, I wasn't really doing anything new worthy of writing about.

Even though my writing frequency has decreased, I still enjoy having my writing outlet, and recently, I got the idea to create a secondary blog for motherhood, the new aspect of my life. This way, I can keep Eco Cajun focused on the environmental side and have a space to write about things that may not necessarily fit under that brand.

I'm excited to launch Eco Cajun Mama and write about the things that this sweet little girl teaches me every day.
