  • A Wild One

    Since entering the workforce for the first time since becoming a mother, my life has been a wild one.  During the ten months I spent at home with Grayson, my schedule became his schedule.  I could do laundry while he played happily, write a blog post while he napped, plan errands and grocery trips around […]

Around middle school I got my […]
