Allow me to reintroduce myself, my name is HOV. Just kidding. It’s MaKaibree but depending on who you ask they may tell you it’s MaK, Kaibree, or whatever other part of my name they fancy. As an adult I realized the value of time and shortened it to MaK to make introductions easier. I feel like I need to reintroduce myself because I actually started this blog back in 2015 when I was living in NYC dating the love of my life, who is now my husband and three years later so much has changed.
I started it in the hopes that I would use it as a creative outlet and journal to remember the things that make my heart happy. Clearly it didn’t end up going very far because in 2016 my URL expired and I didn’t renew it in time and immediately I had some jerk trying to sell it back to me for $2,500. LOL After that whole situation I gave up on it. It wasn’t until just the other day when I realized almost 2 years of my daughters life had flown by and all I have are pictures. They say pictures are worth a million words so I’m so happy to have them however, I really want to remember how I felt about things in the moment.
So here’s to trying this once more. Luckily some of my old posts were saved by Wix so I still have those to look back on which really showed me how things change and made me so excited to get back to this and follow through this time so I will continue to have these memories documented. I’d also like to use this platform to show others some of my absolute favorite places, people, food, books, and whatever else makes my life more enjoyable.
As for the re-introduction… This is what my daily life looks like. It’s January of 2018, I’m 23, almost 24. Currently I am sitting at the University of Utah writing this while listening to a lecture in my Medical Anthropology class. Kylan is working at the University of Utah Hospital right now he is building an ER room up at The Huntsman center. Rewsey is home playing with Piper most likely spreading her legos all over her bedroom or coloring in her book while losing half of the crayons in the thick shag rug. Baby girl number 2 is kicking my arm that I’m resting on my belly while typing this. That is is where we’re at.
Honestly physically I am rather exhausted but mentally I feel like a million bucks. I was up till 3am learning quickbooks so that I could finish my business taxes and rewsey woke me up at 7am because she wanted to FaceTime her daddy at work. I made it to my spanish class on time and actually was able to put on more than just gym clothes for the first time this semester. I only did that because I’m skipping my orange theory class and going to cafe rio for lunch. Then I have to study and be to my brow studio on time for my client this evening.
So things are definitely busy, I feel like i’m over booked most of the time but some how it’s all working and I am loving it. My main focus day in and day out is balance. Between being a wife, mother, student, business owner and reminding myself that I’m an individual and have personal needs as well it can get crazy but over time we are all getting the hang of it and i’m learning simple hacks that make it possible and I will share them with you here.
Pictured above is my entire heart. Kylan, my hard working, good looking, delicious cooking, hubby who I love with all of my heart. Rewsey, my beautiful, sweet and sassy, blue eyed & curly haired baby girl who keeps me laughing all day long. Baby girl number 2 who I am SO grateful I am able to grow and carry even though she gives me sciatica pain like no other and keeps me up all night wiggling around. We can’t wait for her grand entrance into this world expected in late May 2018.
