New Adventures on the Horizon

Happy Friday y’all! It’s been an amazing day of rest for me. Sometimes we just need it, right?

Well today’s day of rest was not like many others for me, it was the start of my maternity leave 🍋 Prior to today, it’s been a long week of 10 to 12 hour work days. It’s been at least 6 weeks of working at least 6 if not 7 days a week. It’s been just shy of 4 months of starting this new job that I love (yes, I started a new job in the middle of covid, craziness I know). It’s been 7 months of sheltering in place and 9 months of being pregnant while managing my first time being pregnant let alone during covid plus a job change/this work hustle. Needless to say, MY BODY IS TIRED!

Today I allowed my body to catch up. There are 18 things I wanted to do today, but I told myself there is always tomorrow. So I made myself a fancy coffee, whipped up a veggie scramble, took a nice long walk at the park, read, watched some tv and took a nap. How glorious it was! ✨ I am excited to finally be on maternity leave and let my body rest before our baby girl arrives. This time is most importantly about her, and my husband and I welcoming her into our family but selfishly (and so I have heard from other moms) it’s about me too. Resting, healing, and staying fulfilled as a person, hustling in my career, while also becoming a mom to this amazing little girl. I am excited to get to those 18 other things too during this time off, while nurturing my little one and teaching her to be a woman of strength and grace. It will be such an adventure, one that I am so excited to begin for our soon-to-be family of three ❤️ (well if you count the dogs, family of five 🦮🐕‍🦺)
