Happy Thanksgiving! This holiday completely snuck up on me. I know it’s so cliche to say, but where did the time go? This entire year has gone by so fast – I guess kids will do that to you. This last week I was thinking about this time last year. I just remember so vividly us waiting for Harper to arrive. And now I can’t believe it’s been nearly a year with her. When you run a business from home, work with your spouse, and take care of your child at home you can easily lose sight of the big picture. The day to day has been hard this last year. Learning to balance it all – parenthood, a business, my health, being a good wife – there’s been a lot of ups and downs. But, as a I reflect and put things into perspective – I’m exactly where I always wanted to be. It’s crazy how the stress and craziness of the day to day really clouds your mind.
This year has been so full. Entering into parenthood, buying a house, and fighting through obstacles with our business. I’m so grateful for where I am and who I am today. I’m grateful for Mike who has been an incredible partner and dad. I’m thankful for friends and family who have been so supportive. I’m grateful for YOU. This amazing community has been so uplifting and awesome. And last but not least, I’m forever grateful for my Harper Gray. She has given me the role of a mother, a role I’m realizing was always meant for me. Through Harper I’ve experienced the highest of highs and the lowest of lows. She’s taught me so much about myself, allowed me to love like I never have before, and has made me a better person. She teaches me everyday that life is precious, time is everything, and the best thing we can do in life is be present. Aaah, just feeling grateful for this little family of ours ♡.
