Where do I begin?
It’s been quiet around here, and I’m bummed that I’ve let things slide for so long. However, life has been busy! Between work and mom life, I’m almost always in over my head. Yet, those two things are hardly the half of it when it comes to responsibilities and obligations. Either way, I’m making my way back to the blog as best I can. I seriously have a list of blog ideas so long, I don’t even know where to start…
For now, here’s just a little update on life lately:
I got a promotion! Hip-hip-hooray! The transition (+ general busy-ness within the company) has kept me super busy both during the 9-to-5 grind and many nights after Zoey goes to bed. My job is demanding and high-pressure, but it’s also so fulfilling. It keeps me on my toes, and I really do value my professional career … so cheers to continued adventures!
Baby girl is officially on the move! Yes, we have a very active nine-month-old baby on our hands. She’s been crawling for a few months now, but she’d added standing and supported walking to her resume. Did I mention she doesn’t like to be contained? Always. Moving. I’m tired just thinking about it! 😉
I’m jumping in on the minimalism bandwagon! Stress often leads me to desperately try and organize other parts of my life. I’ve fully decided that we just have too much stuff. So, there have been a lot of purging sessions going on around here … mainly in my closet. I’ve consigned or donated tubs and tubs of clothing, accessories, shoes and miscellaneous home items in the last month alone. It feels SO good. I’ll share more about that journey soon, but I think I’m on to something really good.
I’m finally back to yoga! This is the BEST update there is. Yoga is so many things to me, and I truly feel lost without it. I had to take a long break from my mat after surgery at the end of the year to ensure everything was healing well. About nine weeks post-surgery, I went back to the studio and have gone a few times per week since. Slowly but surely I’m feeling more like myself.
We’ve made progress with meal planning. So many things going on in the kitchen, too! After a few tries with meal delivery services like Blue Apron and Hello Fresh, we’ve landed on an app called eMeals. It’s been a real game-changer for us, so I’ll be elaborating on that soon too. (Seriously, my blog idea list is VERY long.)
That’s “all” for now, but prepare yourself for a bombardment of posts!
