August 10, 2012 in Life
Change’s are happening, will happen and have happened in my life, my business, and my family. It seems I cannot escape it, whether I want to or not. Some changes are fun and exciting, and other changes are heartbreaking and overwhelming. I believe bittersweet is the best English word that can define my emotions right now.
I recently added photography to my graphic design business. I have three sessions coming up next week, and more on the schedule. I also upgraded to a Canon 7d!! I am excited about this change and the opportunities it will provide to work with families and fun people. You can see more about that here.
All three of our kids will be in school this year. Monkey will just be in a preschool a couple days a week, but that will be a huge change for me! For the first time in 8 years I will not have to hire someone to watch the kids while I work in the office. This change feels odd.
The biggest and saddest change is that we will soon be saying goodbye to our son, a two year old we have been honored to have in our home since his birth. He will be returning home to his parents, who are very excited to have him with them. We will miss him and we are hopeful that we will still be able to be a part of his life in the years to come. This will be the hardest and saddest change.
Soon, I will be the mother of children who are all over the age of 5. They can use the bathroom by themselves. They can buckle their seat belts. They can
make their own help with dinner (A girl can dream, right?) What a strange new territory with it’s own unique challenges. This is a mind blowing change. Maybe I’m being dramatic, but it seems like it to this mom!
So, here is to new seasons, ready or not!
