Thankful, always

November 22, 2016

Thankful for a beautiful 6 year old whose kind heart and amazing mind inspire me and make me prouder every day. Thankful for the most incredible 4 year old I’ve ever known.

Well, today is the day. My last day as a member of the gainfully employed. Bittersweet? Definitely. I’m beyond sad to be leaving a workplace I loved, but I’m also excited to get to spend time at home with Della. I think these next couple months with just her before the new baby comes will […]
