How I’m Finding Balance and Relaxation as a New Mom


Thank you to Pure Leaf for this sponsored post. While the post may be sponsored, the thoughts and opinions are my own.

For anyone who has ever been a mother, you can understand the lack of sleep and energy that comes with caring for a little person who needs your full attention, love and support (literally). Asher is on his way to the 9 month mark and well on his way to crawling and walking. I have no idea where the time went but being able to watch him grow and explore the world has been the most incredible experience – as well as the most exhausting. While I adore my time playing and cuddling with my sweet boy, a momma still needs to get her ‘me’ time in for a balanced and sound mind and body.

I’ve always been an advocate for quiet time and relaxation. As human beings we tend to over exert our limits in this crazy schedule packed world and as a mother it happens to us without realizing it at times… until we crash. I love my quiet time while Asher naps because it allows me to hit the reset button with my favorite Pure Leaf Home Brewed Iced Teas and music in the background, to take a moment and just breathe. I know that when I take this daily moment to find balance in my life I am able to be a better and more attentive mother and wife to the boys who mean the most to me. Since Asher’s first nap usually happens around 9:30-10am, I’ve been enjoying (and addicted!) to my Pure Leaf Iced Black Tea with Peach Flavor as a refreshing pick-me-up to get me through the day. The peach flavor is soooo good you guys and it’s so quick to make! These teas are designed to be enjoyed at colder temperatures so Chris and I have been making pitchers of this stuff as a daily refresher. They will definitely be a staple in our house for summertime BBQ’s.

Whether you love a quiet moment like me or love to be constantly on the go like my hubby Chris, the Pure Leaf Home Brewed Iced Teas are the way to go. Like I said, they are so easy to make and we love that their teas are expertly crafted with the highest quality tea leaves for the most invigorating experience you can seriously taste.

There are a variety of Pure Leaf Home Brewed Iced Tea flavors that can be found over at I know I look forward to trying them all out! Let me know how you like to hit the reset button in the comments below or tag me on IG at @DesireeSiegfried. For all of you in NYC, make sure to visit the new Pure Leaf Tea House in SoHo to try the flavors in person from now through September 24th!
