It was a transitional year. Back to work after having the babe. Learning to multitask work and new motherhood. Attempting to retain my sanity whilst juggling marriage, three children, a dog and two cats, a demanding career, 3 hours worth of daily commuting. Daycare, play dates, sports, travel, constant schlepping. Buying a home and all the paperwork and maneuvering that entails. Struggling (and ultimately failing) to keep up my exercise routines, personal relationships and creative endeavors. But never losing the desire or intention. Knowing I’ll get back to those things eventually. Turning 40 and being so excited for what’s ahead. Loving being a Mommy and adoring my ragtag crew. Recognizing and cherishing what I have while I have it.
