I am a mother. Let’s just get that out of the way right now. I have a two-year-old that I am hopelessly in love with. She has enslaved me and I wouldn’t have it any other way. When I have time to myself I hop over the laundry basket, dodge the dishes, and avert my eyes from the dog hair ridden floor so that I may sew.
I’ve never been a writer. In fact, exactly one year ago, I left a career in engineering project management to care for my raggamuffin. I think many new mothers will tell you that, as important as this new gig is, it doesn’t seem like enough. While I struggle to find peace in our new lifestyle, I will use this as my outlet. I will write and I will share the things that inspire me to create. I imagine there will be lessons learned along the way.
