The first thing I do when I wake up is…
Stretch and meditate for 10 minutes.

My skin survives on…

The song playing in the background…
Anything by James Taylor.

I (try to) incorporate wellness by…
Eating a wholesome diet, exercising daily, and practicing self-care.

Breakfast is my time to…
Nourish my body for the day. I make sure to eat plenty of protein, whole grains, and fruit.

If I had nowhere to be until the afternoon, I would…
Spend the morning at the beach with my husband and dog. It's our favorite time together!

I take time for myself as a mom by…
I'm not quite a mom yet, but I'm hoping to be able to sneak away for a manicure once in a while once the baby comes.

I love the Maternity collection because…
