love and other updates

Along with billions of people around the world, I swooned over the royal wedding on Friday…full on wake up at 5am and stay glued to my couch until the balcony kiss-type swoon. I remembered my wedding day and remembered feeling just like a princess. Imagine actually becoming a princess on your wedding day!

This post on the queen this afternoon had me swooning all over again.

But what really has me swooning these days is this…

I recently decided to quit my job and become a stay at home mom with Carter.

Say what?

You read right. I’m a stay at home mom!

For the most part. I’m doing some consulting with my previous employer right now and will be doing some part time coaching this summer, too!

The decision was a huge one for me, one I went back and forth on for awhile and one I still, in my darkest, most fearful moments, am afraid wasn’t the right one for my son. I’ve experienced a good amount of success in my short carer over the last 4 years…what if this job, the most important one I’ve ever had, is the one I fail at?

It’s easy to be so hard on yourself you just assume you are going to fail. Women in general are so, so hard on themselves. For me, becoming a mother has taken that personal pressure to an entirely different level…to scary, scary heights.

But I won’t fail.

There will be days that are harder than others, sure. That’s inevitable. He’s growing and changing so fast, and I consider myself so privlidged and so lucky to have this time to grow right by his side.

When your boss is this cute, how can you not love your job?
