The Lettuce: Just a Girl

The Lettuce: Just a Girl

NOTE: This post was originally published on Instagram. I am reposting and backdating it here as part of a historical series in order to preserve these meaningful memories and early motherhood thoughts and experiences in a way that is not tied to any social media platform. This is something I’ve been wanting to do for some time. As we formally shelter in place in NYC, this project brings me happiness and a welcome break from the news. 🖤

I’m just a girl, standing in front of our next Whole Foods location, with my husband and business partner, wearing a necklace that says Mother and a hat that says Señor Lechuga Hot Sauce, asking how the hell did I get here??

I have made it a habit in my life of only pursuing the things that scare me and come with great risk.

And it has paid off wildly in experience, adventure, fulfillment, love and growth.

Take a chance on yourself. Bet on yourself. Believe in yourself.
