It wasn’t love at first site for Misha when she moved to St. Augustine. The Nation’s oldest city felt very slow and too laid back for her, but after living here for a couple years she grew to love it! She realized it’s exactly where she wanted to raise a family and loves that there is a lot of opportunity that exists here while still offering a small community feel. Thank you for sharing a little bit about yourself this month, we are excited to get to know you more!
1) What is your favorite part about being a mom ?
There’s been so many magical and exhausting things about these stinkers calling me mommy. I enjoy the obvious things but above everything I would say this. They make me want to be the best I can be. They challenge every part of me and they have taught me more than anyone in my life . Because of them I have more patience than I ever thought I could muster and they teach me to be in the moment, to stop and smell the roses.
2) What do you and your family like to do in your free time?
We really enjoy being outside and connecting with the earth in some way, paddle boarding and giving snuggles to our 2 senior Boston terriers.
3) As a former salon owner, what made you take the leap to be a full-time mom?
I saw an opportunity for me to support my family in a greater way that money couldn’t buy.
4) What is your favorite mom ” hack”?
Well I don’t have any tricks , I am learning as I go. I’d say if you have a toddler that you suspect is only claiming to need medicine because they like the taste , then I’d say fill up that syringe with some apple cider vinegar and let that do the trick.
5) What do you love about being a part of the fit mamas tribe?
I really enjoy the friends I’ve made through Fit Mamas. Having other moms to laugh with about how insanely hard and amazing this motherhood journey is makes all it even greater .
