I’ve been wanting to write a post like this for some time now. I’m in a really good place and there’s a weird piece of me that wants the whole world to know. Like I want to shout it out loud. When you become a parent for the first time, you experience so many new firsts and your world turns upside down. Life changes drastically and there’s no way to really prepare for it all. Your emotions are all over the place – you literally feel every single emotion there is to have. While I always knew and told myself, “things will get easier,” and “it takes time to find your new normal,” when you get there, there’s a sense of peace and joy that is hard to put into words. Coming from the toughest year of our lives (learning how to take care of a child, running a business with a baby, moving into a new house, and watching our business take a dip), I can say, everything has fallen into place this year and I’m happier than I ever thought I could be.
