We've come a long, long way together


It's happened. Today is my last day as a WOHM - Work Out of the Home Mom.

Next week, as another 1 year-old and a newborn join Darren and I for daily adventures, I become a WAHM - Work At Home Mom.

It's thrilling, it's exciting, it's oh-so-delicious.


This choice was fraught with strife and many rounds of "what if" and "how will that work" and other questions. It has sparked discussion and instilled worry in more than just Dennis and I.

But we continued to forge ahead for the sake of my happiness and fulfillment. And we've been rewarded with affirmations along the journey to get to this place. (One of these affirmations we'll have more details about to share with you shortly.)

For those of you who have been privy to our decision-making process (especially you, God), thanks for your support and well-wishes. Thanks for lending an ear and providing the wisdom that has guided us to what we know will be one heck of a life change.

There is so much to come... Au revoir, hyvästi....goodbye office.
