Cheers to 9 Frankin’ months without alcohol. 👏🏻
This anniversary is extra for me as I have done 9 months before with all 3 of my pregnancies. I never drank or had any issue giving it up when pregnant but I was right back wine-ing it up as soon as possible after my boys were born. After all in this mommy wine culture drinking is totally normal and pretty much given to you as a way to cope or do literally all motherhood with.
I thought that was normal. That drinking to solve problems or numb your feelings was normal. I was normal. But it’s not. I’m not. My drinking was never normal, ever. So now I have none, never. 😎
This new milestone is a big one mentally + I celebrate my continued health + wellness through exercise, meditation, grace, + loving on the people who allowed these changes in me to be possible.
