Strut: The Fashionable Mom Show

I caught the major high points of New York Fashion Week through most of my favorite blogs and magazines. Wishing I was there as I clicked, scrolled, and flipped through slide shows, NYFW photo diaries, and high gloss pages it just made me want to work harder and reach for September. Granted most of the photos I was looking over were from early 20 somethings who might have a significant other and dog, don't have a husband or child, and blogging is their full time job. When I thought about the differences in my circumstances and theirs I was overcome by a wave of discouragement. I mean how could I, with full time daughter, husband, job, and all the responsibilities that come with that, be successful in a world where the Carrie Bradshaw rules?

 I must be honest...on a daily basis, as I am browsing the web, I have the same thought, "If I were single...." Please don't think that I don't love and cherish my family. Understand that I would happily stand in a hot furnace for Hubby and Naomi Sinclair, however there are things that seem more plausible if you are not committed to a family. Things like jet-setting to Brazil for photo shoots, moving to New York City to further your career, or working out 10 times a week to get that body you wish you had just don't fit in with the life of a wife/mommy. Sometimes the outlook of my blogging career or getting anywhere near Fashion Week seem out of the question.

For those of you who ever have the same thoughts, I present to you Strut: The Fashionable Mom Show.
