How did your motherhood change your lifestyle? How did you manage to balance it with your work, couple and social life?
My life and my priorities have changed deeply. I have decided to spend as much time as I can with my children since childhood years pass by very quickly. In this moment, I am the real me and what I am going through is the most important part of my life. My partner and I are building our life project. Regarding work, I made the decision to only commit to projects that allow me to raise my children.
We do miss enjoying some wine here and there but what could be more fun than going out as a family with two kids, a stroller, toys, all geared up! (laughs).
There is a time for everything in life and at this time I am very happily going through this unique adventure!
