Nov 29, 2017 There were so many small, but important thoughts I had today. A conversation with a friend that solidified and stitched together all these disconnected ideas I've had into something I'm equal parts so excited about and so clueless about some of the skill set required. But I've learned over and over that … Continue reading What’s Next
Nov 28, 2017 Stop underestimating the power of taking a shower cleaning up a messy space a good conversation with a friend
Nov 27, 2017 I've been thinking a lot lately about what I want to do with this space next year. I definitely want to keep writing and sharing here, but I think it's going to be in a very different medium than my blabbering thoughts thrown together before hitting my pillow each night.

As they start eating solids and nursing less and less I always feel so … Continue reading Speaking of gratitude
