Welcome to The Blushing Bluebird blog! My name is Christy and I am a new mom to a beautiful baby girl (with another on the way), wife to an incredible man, and motherhood & newborn photographer. The purpose of this blog is to have somewhere to share my day to day adventures with my family as well as a place to showcase brands and products that make motherhood and the home stylish and fun!

It’s a life of smiles and a life of tears, it’s a life of hopes and a life of fears… Hold your head high till you see a ray of light appear. And so remember this, life is no abyss, somewhere there is a bluebird of happiness. -Jan Peerce (1945)

The significance of the blog title The Blushing Bluebird:

I don’t know if you know this, but bluebirds represent happiness, cheerfulness, prosperity, wellness, and new births (how appropriate!). On a more personal note, bluebirds have always been a strong symbol for my family, and a love for them was passed down from my Grandmother to my mother, who then passed it on to my siblings and I. I can’t wait to pass on the spirit of the bluebird to my babies as well! My little sister is really the true “bluebird” in our family’s generation of kiddos and I love that we have grown to share so many passions. The “blushing” portion of the title is so me that it makes me giggle. Truly an introverted extrovert, I am usually blushing 99% of the time as I try to find the right words or etiquette in any situation. Blush also happens to be my favorite color- it calms me so much and I see the world through a blushy rose colored lens!

Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog! Feel free to send some love in the comments. I would love to shine a light on small businesses who showcase moms and babies as well as connect with other new moms and bloggers.
